Attention boardsort.com scrappers. Are you looking to step up your scrapping game in 2017? I hope so because I have some good news about a new opportunity for you.
We are introducing a new program that will allow you to increase your profits by selling a select number of fully functioning CPU chips.
There are currently around 100 different CPUs that we will purchase from you once they have been tested. The prices range from $0.50 each to over $100 per working CPU.
The best part is that we do all of the testing. You do not need to have the vast equipment that it would require to properly test all of the varieties of CPU's that we buy.
Once you find a CPU that is on our buy list you simply visually inspect the CPU to make sure that all the necessary features of it are intact. You then individually envelope (or package) label and document each CPU and send them to boardsort.com.
We will then test each of CPU's and give it a pass or fail. CPUs that pass the testing will then be paid out according to the price on our buy list for that particular ID. CPU's that fail testing will be bought as scrap according to our standard scrap buying prices. Currently all of the CPU's that we are buying are of the pinless variety, therefor that is the grade they would fall in if failed.
Shortly I will be updating you with pictures of the various CPU's and introduce you to how we will keep track of what you are sending and which pass or fail.
Here is our Buy & Price list. It gives the ID of the CPU, a simple description of the model of the CPU and the buy price for the CPU if it passes the testing:http://boardsort.com/cpupay.php
Once you have a collection of qualifying CPU's you can generate an instant quote by simply inputting the quantity of each different ID of CPU you have.
The Test & Buy Quote Service is found here:http://boardsort.com/chips/chipquote.php
The ID of the CPU will most often be found in the top right hand corner of the tiny printing on the cap of the CPU.

You will need to make sure all the the needed capacitors and pin pads are intact and undamaged on the back of each qualifying CPU. Each style of processor is different, this pic is only one example.

Please know that we will only test and buy CPU's that have been pre-qualified (meaning you can clearly see the ID and found it on our Testing CPU Buy List
) and have been individually protected (using a stock CPU clam shell or something as simple as a small padded envelope). The idea is these are no longer going to be considered as scrap, but a sensitive and potentially lucrative processing unit, assuming they pass the test. You must treat them accordingly.
CPU's found in shipments of scrap (meaning you sent a a bunch of no pin processors for scrap) will not be considered for this program. Instead CPU's sold as scrap outside of this explicit buying program will still be bought as scrap. Do not just throw a bunch of scrap No Pin Processors in a bag and expect to have any of them qualify. They wont. We expect sellers in this buying program to practice extreme diligence.
