looks like 2 pentium iii processors and a really old socket 7 based pentium board with the socket removed?

I agree with dnalark.

Those cards are Pentium II Slot Processors ($10.25 per lb at the time of this post). Good job removing them from the plastic cartridge case as that is how must we buy them.

The motherboard is a Large Socket Motherboard ($2.95 per lb at the time of this post) but it does appear as if it has been slightly processed. The socket for the cpu appears to be stripped. If the pins are still intact then it wont effect the price. If the socket and the pins have been removed it will negatively effect the price to the grade of Small Socket.

WV_Scrapper,

We would classify the board in picture 6.jpg as a Backplane board which at the time of this posting pays $2.50 per pound.

The board in picture 5.jpg will grade as a Large Socket Motherboard paying $2.95 per pound at the time of this post. Even though the CPU sockets are smaller than the specified measurements for this grade the age of the board is all that matters as it is pre-year 2000 therefor the socket size does not apply.

The board in picture 4.jpg still needs to be cleaned up a little bit. It appears as if it is sitting in a white plastic chassis held in with the four corner screws. You will need to remove that board completely from the plastic case.

Once removed that board will be graded as a Peripheral Board which is currently paying $1.40 per lb.

Hello tincanman79, welcome to boardsort.com!

The best way to identify those cpus is to start a new topic in this forum and post the individual pictures of each of those different types of cpu's. Set aside each "style" of chip (no need to include duplicates) and photograph it. If possible, always provide a top and bottom photo because it does matter. Certain cpu's can only be identified by seeing both sides.

For optimum clarity make sure the pictures have a file name that can be easily identified. (ie: pic1.jpg, pic2.jpg etc...) We will refer to those filenames when identifying the grade of material in the associated photo.

Just based on the single photo you provided, I see a wide array of grades of CPU's there including Pentium Pro (the larger of the chips), perhaps a 486 (gold bottom?), Black Fiber (the black one) and Green Fiber With Metal (green ones with the metal top in the lower left).

It sounds complicated but it really isn't. Better to do the homework now than be disappointed with less than expected payouts after you ship.

Surprises are best left for birthdays when it comes to buying and selling. :)

Thanks you so much for the help. I have a few more pictures.
The two first boards measure in at 13.5 inches long.
