I'm sure this has been taken about already, but can you post an explanation of the tested chip buying program?

Do I test the chips?

Did boardsort test them?

Any particular chip not allowed?

How much are the good ones worth?

What's the process of sending them to you packaging wise?

If you can test them then you'll know your payout - otherwise when they get them and test them and find out they are bad you get much lower scrap rate.

They only take certain ones - the list and payout rate is here:

I can't advise on shipping as I haven't sent any myself but obviously if they have pins and such you'll have to put them in containers to prevent damage in transit.

If you know or believe they work and they’re more than a few dollars each I’d head to Amazon and buy a set of CPU trays.
I use cable ties/zip ties to gently tie each cpu into a tray socket for shipping.
Then when full/done place the entire tray in an antistatic bag.
If you do not have an antistatic bag wrap the entire tray in a single non overlapping sheet of aluminium (not tin) foil.
Then tightly wrap the tray in multiple snug layers of stretch wrap/saran wrap.
Finally place a thick piece of cardboard on the top and bottom and tape it all together.
Slide the whole bit into a cardboard box with ample padding. Print out your quote form to include in the box, make a shipping label and send it off. Preferably after taping your box shut.

In one to four weeks you will get the result back from Boardsort. Two weeks is average.

-- my grades are my own and do not represent an offer from boardsort, nor are they guaranteed. Please keep that in mind.
