Telecom grade due to IC population being heavy. Protip: Remove the gold cap CPU and sell it separately. I believe you would get the same amount of money for the chip alone as you would for the board.

Yes, this is a Telecom Grade board, no doubt about it.

Pulling that CPU could cause you problems, mainly because you will likely damage it to a point where the gold cap may fall off (which essentially devalues the chip 10 fold) and you probably will not be able to save the pins, which again will impact the value.

I havent tried it yet to completely remove a chip like that, just to reflow the solder to get the board working again. But i would bet a heat gun would do the trick to remove the chip and not damage anything. Its a "paint stripper" from home depot for 30 bucks or something like that. Gets up to 1000 degrees F. You may want to wrap the slots with aluminum foil so they dont start melting. Look up a video on hot air reflow to get an idea of how to do it. Again just speculation, when i get some time ill grab a board or two and give it a shot.
