Identification → CPU → Ceramic

Ceramic CPUs are common later in the first Pentium series and early AMD athlon era.


Although Ceramic CPUs are found in many series of different brands, CPUs of this grade have no caps or heat spreaders, so they are easily identified. As long as the CPU has a ceramic housing and no cap, it is part of this grade.


CPUs frequently have fans and large coolers attached. Any attached coolers and fans should be removed. These coolers are frequently made of aluminum or copper, and can be profitable if collected to large quantities.

Sometimes CPUs can be attached to boards or adapters, these should be removed, or at the least trimmed down to remove excess material and sorted separately as board scrap.

It is important that the CPUs be separated properly into the groups described in the price list, in order to receive full compensation.


A minimum of 20 lbs is needed.
