This looks like a definite RMA candidate. It wasn't your cap that blew, judging by the pictures. I can't see well enough from the pictures, but it looks like there was either a diode or a transistor next to it on the mobo, and that suffered what is refered to as a 'catastrophic' failure.

If you have a DMM, you should check your PSU before you plug anything else into it, and make sure that it is regulating properly. Since this board is already fried, you can use it as your guinea pig.
