I have a lot of idle processing power, some of them even with free electric supply, but they all have poor network access (may of them even have no network access)  so I cant rent them out as a VPS or something like webserver ……

I found bitcoin mining maybe a good way to make use of them, but I am not sure whether it's the best way.
Is there anyother way I can sell/rent the processing power?

BTW:
Most of them are server boxes, they have powerful CPU and pool GPU (I am not sure it could call GPU or not just a onboard video chip)
They are good at float computing not SHA-256......

Thanks,

There are several different types of Bitcoin clients. Hybrid server-assisted clients like Electrum get a lot of their network information from centralized servers, but they also check the server's results using blockchain header data. This is perhaps somewhat more secure than either server-assisted clients or header-only clients.

If you're CPU mining, one single ATI graphics card will run rings around your whole server farm. I hope you aren't paying for electricity.

Yes, It's the problem, CPUs are good at float computing, not doing SHA-256……
Is there any way to sell cpu float processing power?

There probably is, but Bitcoin isn't it. Sorry Sad

You might be able to sell FLOPS for Bitcoin.

You could set up a seperate server that specifies problem format and accepts Bitcoins and the problem.  Sneakernet it over to your CPU.
Bit of a hassle, though.
