You cannot mine bitcoin with cpu now. Better mine alternative cpu coins then exchange it to btc.

You will mine as close to zero bitcoins as you can get, without actually being zero bitcoins. If you factor in the cost of electricity (if you have to pay for it), you will actually be making a loss  Cry

If your hardware is redundant, have you considered selling it and using some of the funds to buy, say a handfull of USB antminers from ebay, which will at least mine some fraction bitcoin during their life and a good introduction to mining.
