Intel 386SL gold yield?

Post by Slive » July 14th, 2018, 5:22 am

Hey,

any idea of the Intel 386SL gold yield? Less than the socket version I guess.

I have ~20 old Telco CPU boards with 386SLs. Should I bother scrapping / selling?

I can share photos next week.

Thanks!

Privet Bator,

can I cut the leads or should I bother desoldering?

Thanks

The Intel CPU's like these are fairly easy to heat up and lift off
of the board. If you are careful, you can keep the "leads" from
getting all bent up. To a collector you should be able to get at
least $10.00 each or $200.00 for just the twenty CPU's.

Then you can sell the rest of the telecom boards for their
respective scrap value. :D

i ran a batch of similar looking chips, but they were 486's... it was about half a gram/lb of Au.

Sounds reasonable. If it wasn't for the collecting market I would just throw them in among other plastic chips. These are easily worth more for collectors than as gold scrap.
