Identification → CPU → Gold Cap Ceramic

A variety of CPUs from a range of different series are part of this grade. These CPUs are generally very old ceramic chips that include the Pentium Pro CPUs.


These ceramic CPUs are identified by their gold caps. The caps can be on the top or bottom side of the CPU. The housing of these CPUs is made of ceramic.

This grade include some of the biggest CPUs, such as the Pentium Pro. But the sizes, shapes, and style of plating can vary greatly. As long as the CPUs have ceramic housing and gold plating, they fall into 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.
