like the board and stuff?

i thought it was made out of silicon,

 

im talking about the big board piece, that kinda looks like cardboardm, you know...the big main part?

 

any other things that are put in besides the obvious?

mainly Im asking, what is it made "mostly" of, like what is the main percentage of it made of?

the PCB is made out of a insulator and there are wires and stuff inside it, the wires might be made out of copper. I know that the solder points must have some lead in them.

Insulator? like what is the insulator made of?

 

im guessing the insolator is the majority of the PCB right? since it's all that brown stuff?

It better be an insulator otherwise the whole board would conduct electricity and it would be imposible to have transisters on it.

 

I think "copper clad fiberglass" is what is used to decribe most PCB boards

ah cool, then question what is silicon used for in Computers? I know Im dumb

 

I guess MOBO's are made out of the same thing pretty much, well the PCB and the main part of motherboards?

 

anyone know the exact materials for the PCB?
