Could be profitable mining on HP Thin Client be viable, if I already have them and they are just laying in warehouse and not ever going to be sold?

They have really low consumption, but some low-grade CPU.

Are there some CPU coins that are not outmined by GPU?

Thank you.

I've searched but last thread is from 2014.

I also have a couple HP Thin Client laying around, but even with they're low power usage, they where not profitable mining Monero at least. Just to compare i got higher hash rates mining with my cell phone.. :-O

You are going to loose your time, pay the electricity bill, destroy the PCs, and all that for some pennies in return, it does not worth the trouble at all

Don' t do it for sure

As long as your electricity is cheap enough to be profitable you can go for a CryptoNight coin like Electroneum or Monero and get a couple bucks out a day. Just remember, the number of cores you can allocate is the size of your L3 Cache divided by 2 (each core needs 2MB of L3 Cache to work).

Aeon only needs 1MB of L3 cache per core, so you could look into the one as well
