Old Processors Have Resale Value at SMS Assembly
Getting rid of old and outdated computer parts such as processors can prove to be a serious hassle for businesses. Although tossing the parts into garbage dumps is simple and convenient, doing so results in businesses contributing to the planet’s environmental problems.
Sending the parts to reclamation facilities is responsible, but can be expensive and time-consuming. However, businesses are not restricted to these two options when it comes to unwanted computer parts.
For businesses uninterested in either dumping their old processors or sending them in to be reclaimed, there is also the option of selling the old processors to SMS Assembly.
Desktop, laptop, and server CPUs are primarily made by Intel and AMD. Even if the computer fails, the processors are often still functional and have resale value. Feel free to send us a list of idle CPUs to Kyle@smsassembly.com for a quick quote.
We buy a few varieties of Intel processors. For desktop processors, if it doesn’t have pins we buy it by the processors. If it does have pins, we can buy it by the pound for gold value. Some of the older processors use a lot of gold for conductive and cooling purposes thereby raising their scrap metal value. The Intel 486 and 486 processors are especially valuable.
The most valuable are the newer series of Intel Xeon server processors E3, E5, and E7. The E5600 series are still quite valuable, followed by the less desirable E5500 and E5400 series Xeons.
