Looking to pick your brain on the attached photos. Most of these items were retrieved from old IBM RS6000 servers.

File comment: I believe these are expansion boards, but not quite to certain how to classify the one on the right with the multiple processors attached.

File comment: Looking for these as well. The ceramic is a RAMDAC chip. The remaining chips on top are IBM 9314PQ processors (I removed the can from one to show beneath). The one on bottom has the socket (which is attached to a cutout section of board) and is only labeled as 40F7395.

File comment: How would these be classified? I believe the TI chips are 486s.

Hello Srduo,

The top 3 larger boards will be purchased as Telecom grade boards.

The bottom 4 smaller boards will all be Backplane grade boards.

The silver colored metal box top IBM chips are purchased at the same price as our P4/Green Fiber With Metal grade which pays $6.75 per pound currently.

The ceramic RAMDAC cpu in that same group is in the Pentium Ceramic grade paying $34 per pound currently.

The two gold capped DSP Texas Iinstruments/IBM chips are Cyrix/IBM/VIA Gold Cap Chips paying $48 per pound currently.

The bottom is a i486sx gold bottom paying $115 per pound currently although I am concerned about the number of pins missing from the cpu.

Thanks for the look!

Thanks for the great info! I had a couple more photos to submit; however, I'm getting a message about reaching board quota and can't upload them. Am I doing something wrong? TIA.

You are doing everything correctly, we had to readjust our software settings to allow for more attachments.

It should be working properly now so go ahead and try again.

Thanks!

Great! Thanks! Here are a couple more, similar to some I've seen from others, but slightly different.

File comment: Was thinking these were merely finger cards based upon a previous, similar inquiry of another; however, I figured I'd check because of all of the IC's.

File comment: No idea on these boards. Possibly two telecom and a midgrade?

All but one of those boards will be bought as Telecom at $4/lb.

The green board in 2.jpg is a little less valuable, likely a low-grade Telecom board.

That is a grade that we offer at our physical location, but I will update our online price list today to reflect that grade as well, which by the way, pays $2 per pound.

Thanks for the look!
