Inside of the power supply, the shell of it is often aluminum, so that is a score to begin with. The wires going into the supply can be cut off and sold for an insulated wire price, and then there are the transformers that are inside as well. We don’t suggest taking the transformers apart, but you could take them off the board, and you will be able to make a few more bucks. The power supply board can then be sold as a low-grade board, and you can cash in for a few extra bucks.

Scrap ya later!
