What do /g/
>>
give them to children
>>
Prepare a room in your basement to put them in, to either become a fortress of solitude, or a den of virginity, but probably both.
>>
>>61785838
Ask your local library or school if they need them. Otherwise you may try to clean them and sell them.

otherwise
>>
>>61785838
Did you get monitors with them?
>>
>>61785838
Make them into a cluster.
>>
>>61785838

Make a render farm. Combined they might have enough power to match an i7 920.
>>
>>61785882
Already have that, I can reload windows 7 pro on them, almost all have a COA on them.
>>
>>61785838

Put one on ebay I'd buy it. How bout like thirty bucks? Alternatively, just donate them to a library or school.
>>
Install GNU/Linux and just donate them to school or library and Stallman will thank you for spreading free software.
>>
>>61786348
Ok well Ill let you guys know if I sell any. They are all thinkcenters, on bottom they have Pentium stickers and on top they have Core 2 Duo's in them, I have to put the drives and ram back in them cause they took them out to wipe company data off of them.

Thanks /g/entleman. If I get one I'm mostly gonna use the case to replace my old junky gayman machine's and then probably stick the mobo in a mineral oil submersion.
>>
>>61785838
sell them for 40 bucks a pop. or BOINC farm.
>>
>>61785838
donate them, you beautiful human being
>>
>>61786429
>just donate them to school
Schools get rubbish like this all the time.
And then the donor expects to be lauded and thanked. He also expects to see kids clustered, wide-eyed, around his gifts.
Usually, they are in the dumpster.
They are non-standard. If we use them they have to be cleaned down to the metal. Then we have to create an image for them, catering for their non-standard video and network cards. And track where they get installed.
Not worth the trouble.

Do you live in Northern Midwest? I'll trade you for a copy of Windows 7 genius edition?

>>61785887
Those are like ancient. Nobody wants a fucking dual core from 2008 anymore. Places like libraries and schools probably replaced such exact machines 3 years ago.

Don't forget Diablo 2!

i worked for a computer recycler recently, and we had a stack of machines bigger than OP's. i thought, hey, why not set up a beowulf cluster, just for shits and giggles?

well, shit.

When was the last time you used a library computer? If you're able to run some form of shitty basic linux on it with a web browser they'll take it.

>>
seconding beowulf cluster
>>
Well. If you want to use them all:
BOINC rig. At least you would do something to help science
Or maybe build server for your coding projects.
Or maybe shitload of servers for everything from email and rss to web servers. Something like a data center at home
>>
>>61786164
>>61786056
>thinkcentre branding
Probably 775 pentiums. Some equipped with those come with new stickers just like core 2 duo computers sold during nehalem days.

I live in germany and the local library would love to take them
don't fall for socialism, /g/
>>
>>61795562
I live in Germany too and I don't know what shitty local library you have, but the ones in mine are all very recent machines.
>>
Set the bottom seven up as a daisychain of proxies, connect your usual machine to the first and the last to the router.

You are now LITERALLY untouchable

take a few of those SFF machines to use, great potential for a small but still quite capable machines if they are M58 like they look like them at least
can take 775 c2q/xeons and at least over 8GB RAM despite lelnovo claiming otherwise, I got one with 12GB and a X3330. would be literally perfect for almost all normal use except gaymen with a ssd

>>61798174
