Diagnosing Main Logic Board Blow? - With Photos

Well I'm on a quest to repair my HD Cinema Display, rather than replace — or at least I was until I just saw this. Opened up the casing to find this major blow on the main logic board.

Can anyone tell me what this is and what would have caused it?

I have already procured the following replacement parts (which can be returned):

• New 150W Power Brick & New Power Cord

• New DVI/Firewire/USB All in One Cable

• Tested but previously used Logic Board

I am wondering what function this orange square serves and what would have caused such a blow out so that I can treat the root problem as well as the symptoms.

UPDATE 7/2/15: Helpful advice! Upon further inspection I realized it was not actually the orange square, but was in fact, the sections directly below it that blew.

Any advice, input or guidance would be much appreciated!

Thank You!
