Here I suspect we have more mere Sunsparcs but with pins so they must go into a pins cpu category although I cant fathom which one they are to go into?

These go in AMD ceramic with caps.

There is no such category under cpus the closest is the ceramic with aluminum cap which doesn't seem right to me?

Autocorrect didn’t like AMD.
AMD ceramic with aluminium cap is correct.

These are one of those fluke cases. They aren’t common enough to create their own grade so they go with the closest type category.
Sun commonly punk used two types of heat caps, tungsten, which has a higher value than aluminium, and copper, which may be more expensive than aluminium, it is considerably less valuable than the attached CPU.

There’s some lengthy discussions on sun and related SPARC cpus in the archives.
If you remove the cap without doing major damage to the CPU they will go as Penguin/Mac ceramics.
Chris suggests boiling. I’ve used a heat gun. Sun themselves use a different proprietary type of adhesive thermal, glue, for lack of better term. And are more difficult to remove. So try one before boiling 10, for instance. If you break them the class can drop depending on the size of the pieces. Cracking on in half will still make the AMD class for the pieces. Breaking it into many small fragments will make a mess of classing.
