Hello Sjaak , all good thanks!I'm so sorry chief
, I'd read your post wrong and I just saw PP , and not IPP , and I took it as you reffering to Pentium Pro ,
Another member ( cnbarr ) recently processed some these ( ipp ) processors and managed an average yield of 1 gram of gold per lb of these type of chips ( viewtopic.php?f=67&t=12921
From the numbers given in that thread , it takes sixteen ipp's to make a pound , so in theory I would guess that each CPU would yield 1/16th of a gram of gold.
(Edit to add before posting , in some of the pictures of the material to be processed in the thread mentioned above , the pins had been removed , I don't know whether or not these pins were included in the batch , this would affect the yield data one way or another).
I would hazard a guess and say that if your processors have bent pins , they would no longer hold any collectors value , but that is a guess.
With regards to finding out the resale value of computers and parts , ebay is your friend.
I believe that checking the completed auction listings and seeing what certain items have sold for gives you a good idea of what people are willing to pay , I'm sure that it's a ploy used by many on the forum.
Again , I'm so sorry for reading ipp wrong , my bad!
All the best for now , and kind regards ,
