I have quite a few processors laying about, but not sure which are which, is there a way to just scrap them as mixed? Or can someone give me a better idea on sorting, here is a picture of what i think is the only 4 types i have, the differnce in the last two are the one farthest on the bottom has many more pins.

I believe this previous post answers your new question...

Mixed wire ($0.65/lb) is basically a collection of various types of wire, including but not limited to ribbon cable, telephone cable, power cables and speaker wire.

If it is considered a "wire" it can be included in this grade. You can leave the plug-in ends attached or cut them off, it will not effect the price.

The wires cannot have a transformer attached (power supply) however.

If you do cut the ends, check if they have gold plated connector pins. If so, we will purchase just the connector end at $0.85/lb.

Best thing to do with the power supplies is trim any SATA connectors off of them, since those connectors use gold pins. Trim the ends off all your IDE ribbon cables and put them with your trimmed SATA connectors off the power supplies. You now have a nice collection of cable ends that you can sell to boardsort. Best way to ship those is flat rate, so stuff as many as you can into the largest flat rate box, seal the box so it does not open during shipping, then send it to boardsort. Any cable ends you have that have gold pins on them will fit into this category, not just ribbon cable ends and SATA connectors.

I get 90 cents a pound for number two wire with ends attatched so might be worth checking your local yard. Payout isnt high enough to justify mailing cable ends in at least for me

Clean gold-plated pins? I've looked on the the paid out list and don't see a payout for these. What is the current rate?

I'm interested in the current rate as well, currently have a couple 5 gallon buckets if IDE ends and a few buckets of pci slots that have been desoldered.

If trimmed directly from the ribbon cable or in your case, desoldered directly from the motherboard with no additional processing, all you have will go as cable ends. check the price list before shipping, but those cable ends go for 0.90/pound as of the timestamp of this post.

Gold pins are hard to grade via a photo and boardsort stated here that due to thickness of the plating and the karat of gold used, pricing of gold pins can vary greatly.
