Special mining is done in Eval 2. It is intended for systems that would otherwise be recycled. That is, if a system is a keeper, use the regular mining process -- not this special mining process.

Currently, the systems that are special mined are those that have 3 digit ZIF sockets, but have processor speeds less than 500 MHz. This includes those with 3 digit ZIF sockets and no processors.

  • Remove all the cards that regular mining would have you remove.
  • Remove the hard drive.
    • Be sure to leave drive rails with the system.
  • Remove the CD Drive and floppy drive (unless they are proprietarily built into the case).
    • Be sure to leave drive rails with the system.
  • Remove the motherboard (and take to advanced testing).
  • If the case is a standard, non-name-brand case with all its side panels, etc., label it with a HOLD FOR STORE sticker and put it on the cart.
  • If the case isn't very standard, or is name-branded, put a recycle sticker on it and put it in the Rejects pile.
