Gold, silver, platinum and palladium can all be recovered from circuits and processors of electronics. Of all the precious metals, gold is the one most frequently recovered and refined from electronics. Although it is possible to melt the gold plating away from the circuitry, you will cause more of a mess and lose some of the precious metal. The most effective way to reclaim gold from scrap components is to use a process referred to as reverse electroplating.Chips, ICs, CPUs and many electronic components contain valuable precious metals that can be recovered. This type of electronic waste accumulates as a waste product during the manufacture of electronic appliances, during the dismantling and recycling of disused appliances and also in the form of overstocks at assembly firms.Refining of processor chips, ICs, CPUs,The processor (CPU: Central Processing Unit) is the brain of the PC. It contains millions to billions of microscopic transistors and a few hundred gold plated pins. Processors are one of the most value dense portions of the PC. Older processors are generally larger and have more generous gold plating than more modern ones: 386/486 and Pentium chips are particularly valuable. Here are some more details about 486s.The processor is recognizable as a large rectangular or square chip that plugs directly into the motherboard. It is usually the largest single chip in the PC. Intel and AMD are the largest PC processor manufacturers, however IBM, ARM, Motorola and others make them as well. The processor often has a heat sink attached to it which may also have a small fan. Heat sinks are typically aluminum, which has little scrap value.Processors are also found in video cards (there they are called GPUs: Graphics Processing Units), in cellphones, iPods and iPads, and most other electronic devices. Generally only computer processors are large enough and detactable enough to merit separating them. The value of the processor varies greatly depending on the model. As mentioned above, older processors generally have more precious metal content.In this ebook, we have also included :- Amount gold contents found in many CPU chips, in troy ounces.- A list of the highest CPU Recycling Yields And Values- The most mis-graded CPU chips.The following pages Includes:- Introduction.- Pictures of CPU chips.- How much GOLD there are in each CPU chip and how much it worth.- The Ceramic Weight of each CPU chipset.Please check and rate us.
