How Much Does a Motherboard Weight?

I had to Estimate/Round of the Nearest kg what would it be 1kg, 2kg, 3kg, or more.

The motherboard, also known as the mainboard, system board, or simply motherboard, is the main circuit board in many computers and other electronic devices. The motherboard contains a number of integrated circuits (ICs) that provide input/output and storage for the device. Since it defines the “base” from which everything else is built, it is often considered to be “the core” of a modern computer system.

It’s always interesting to learn about what sort of motherboard can fit a computer case that you own or are considering buying. Unfortunately, it seems there’s never any way of knowing exactly which motherboard will fit in your new PC case before you purchase it unless you go online and read several reviews just like we still have today. In fact, motherboard weight was typically the biggest.

What are these companies doing with all the PCBs?

PCBs(printed circuit boards) are shipped overseas to other countries where they are either directly recycled into new products, stripped down for parts (conductive copper in most cases), or burned up to recover copper from within them. In addition to this, toxic chemicals are found on the boards such as lead and mercury which end up getting dumped into landfills or put right back into our environment.

What happens when we dispose of the PCBs?

Some communities have been working to come up with creative ways to reuse them, one of those ways is in decorative art. The crafty people at [email protected] in San Francisco have made a name for themselves by recycling old circuit boards by etching designs onto them and then mounting them onto wood. They use acid baths, galvanic dissolution, and electrolytic etching to remove most of the conductive layer so that it is not recyclable any longer but they still leave a small amount of copper on the board for some color contrast.

In addition to this, they also make custom engraved PC boards for do-it-yourself type people. They can etch whatever you want onto your PC board as long as there is a surface for it (waterjet and laser cutting are also available). They use the same processes mentioned above but  the etching process can take several days to complete so plan ahead when making your order. Pricing ranges from $2-$200 depending on what you would like etched onto your board and how many boards you’d like them to do.
