PowerEdge 1650 going bang...

Did the inductor (voltage regulator - little card with a coil on it) burn
up? Dell had contacted us about this problem a while back, though we had
lost eight servers prior to the notification. It took a while to get that
smell out of our data center. Dell replaced the burnt 1650s with 1750s in
our case, within a day or two.
You make want to contact Dell and ask them to review the serial numbers for
your servers. If I remember correctly the problem only exists for a select
run of Dell 1650s.
Refer to this article:
This has also been circulating, however this is not the same component I am
referring to and I have never seen the ATI chip melt down on a Dell.

We've just had a 1650 go bang in our server room (its a HA-Cluster director
no loss of service - we have another on order under warranty so no problems
The component that went bang is a small (1" square) pcb that sticks up out
the motherboard next to the CPU's. It's got the letters "U 5V"
silkscreened next to it.
Anyone know what it is?
