X670E-E Capacitor(?) burned off overnight and computer forced shutdown - Can reboot but worried

Level 7

I'm on day 2 of my fresh rebuild with a brand new mobo, CPU, PSU, etc. Overnight I run my PC with youtube on because, unlike what you'd think, I actually sleep better. I woke up about 15 minutes before my alarm and all was well. Alarm goes off, and I find smokey odor in my room, PC is shut down, and I find this, what I believe is a Capacitor, on the bottom of my case and found it's original location. Main reason I'm posting here is even though I can reboot, I'd rather not run it as I file a claim, however, the ASUS site on mobile has been a nightmare, and I can't even get far enough in to get a phone number to call when support opens up today, let alone the site loading my registered unit list. Anyone have any info on where to contact them?
