Any ideas on yields per LB

Post by Mcnew32 » March 28th, 2018, 3:14 pm

Iv come across about 200+ lbs of these boards with larger than average ceramics on them. I was just wondering if anyone has a guesstimate on a possible yield for these CPUs per lb. I will be refining them myself once I drop them off the boards using an oven. Just kind of picking brains.

200 pounds of those boards- nice. The ceramics alone will make you a very very happy man.

well, if you have some that are in really good condition with no broken components, send me some pictures, I might be interested in buying a board or to for collection purposes.

Finished depopulating ceramics on 200lbs of high grade HP boards. Will process 2 lbs of ceramics shortly and will post yield for you guys.

P.S 25+lbs of ceramics from 200lbs of boards.
