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.

Not worth it. If you're talking thin client, you're looking at something like atom cpus which is really low grade...a celeron does something like 30H/s on cryptonote, an atom might somewhere around 5-7.

A think client is a thin client. All the "work" is done on a server. So no, these are waaay to weak and slow to mine.

I've searched but last thread is from 2014.

Well it's because that's the time when CPUs were any useful in mining coins.
You can try mining a coin using the CPU on those computers but just for fun. Don't expect to get coins that will have any value.
If you're too lucky, you'll get a dollar per month which would of course be useless since you'll pay much more on electricity to run them.

EDIT: I've found a coin that is relatively new and the devs impose that it's cpu mineable only.

I'm not sure if it's legit and I hold no responsibility for you mining this coin. You said that those CPUs are low-grade ? I'm not sure how it'll turn out with you. But I guess you won't get anything.

OR try investing in some mining hardware (build a gpu mining rig ?) if you're serious about this idea.
