Yep, the capacitor itself is split, you need a new one for sure.
Here's a closer picture, i was hoping to re-attach it. I havent been able to find exactly what it is yet, but a few people have said thier cpu worked without it, which is what ill try.

cheers :)
These types of caps are usually just DC line filter caps. You should be fine without the cap (thought I would recommend replacing it at some point).
