✔ Best Answer
Tracking is done with software. It is not built into the processor, so the answer is no.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Really? Someone opened up your computer, removed the cpu heatsink, took the cpu and left everything else alone? That seems a lot of trouble especially when most used cpus on ebay sell for just a few dollars with no risk of criminal charges. Maybe some friends are messing with you.

"Really? Someone opened up your computer, removed the cpu"


Processor is pocketable/concealable, entire system isn't.

Do know anything about the processor your missing? Manufacture, Part Number, Lot code, Date code, processor ID, stepping, anything that would narrow it down? Do you have a receipt? Some proof that you owned it. Do you know when it went missing exactly and who had access at that time. You might be able to connect the dots, but it would most likely be highly unpractical.
