I had a pretty worthless motherboard that I found in trash. While I would normally collect them for scrap, I decided to use it to practice hot air soldering by desoldering some of the chips and resoldering them on. For fun, I took the PGA CPU socket off. The PCIE and RAM slots don't appear to have gold pins so I don't think they have any value themselves.

Seeing that I trashed up the motherboard pretty badly and also broke the CPU socket into two pieces, I don't think I'm going to glue the parts back together to sell as a colored small socket motherboard, I will probably take the chips off and sell the board as low grade to my local scrapyard.

Now, what would Boardsort buy a CPU socket as? Surely that can get more than connector ends grade.

Depends on the socket size and type

It's a AM4 socket. I took the top plastic part and metal bar off.

If sent many scrapped and “binned” sockets over the years.
The choice of class varies.
My suggestion is to post a pic if you can.
If not. 9:10 it will fall into one of the pin board classes at the moment.

Classes split and combine over time.
I’ve gotten everything from peripheral to a downgraded gold pin rate
