6600t good for anything?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I have an Intel Core i5-6600t from a tiny old Lenovo Thinkcentre computer. That was pretty much the only thing I considered worth salvaging as I was getting rid of it. Is there anything that the 6600t could be good for? I don't have much money for extra things, but at some point it would be cool to put this thing to use again. Does anyone have any suggestions?

You didn't keep the motherboard for it?

Sell it on eBay.

That cpu is still good enough for most applications, the drawback is it's clockspeed, 2.7ghz is not good for modern gaming.

You can also use it as a NAS cpu which doesn't need high clock and will benefit from its low power consumption.

I still have the motherboard, but it's like the lowest of low quality boards... Literally one SATA port, and it has one slot for a maximum of 8 gigabytes of SO-DIMM memory.

If I bought like a B150 or B250 motherboard for it, would that be decent for anything good?

An i5 6600t is still a fine processor, you can still use that for many years! :) As others have said, connecting it to your TV could be a good idea. Another idea is giving it to a family member with a worse PC to use.
