At least they appear to be on most mobos I've worked with (higher end ones). m 0 l Chainzsaw a b à CPUs January 16, 2012 6:48:53 PM Most electronics have gold. Although they used very very sparingly. For example on a CPU - the contacts have some gold. Some traces on the motherboard have gold. Toms did an article on how to extract gold from computers - but the cost of the materials needed to extract the gold, as well as the dangerousness of the materials being used made it not worthwhile. I wouldn't bother doing it. You could possibly shorten your lifespan literally if done incorrectly. m 0 l ChosterF January 16, 2012 6:57:57 PM WR2 said:How to Recycle Gold From a Computer Quote:Open your CPU (the computer.)
