    This cpu works great for what I use it for. I can have several tabs open, youtube playing, discord, and my game going all at once without pushing over 50% load.

    Performs absolutely spectacular, haven't even overclocked this yet and I'm already happy with it. Went for this solely for the exceptional price and I'd never use integrated graphics anyways so I was glad to save some money and lose a feature I'd never use.

    I highly suggest using an aftermarket cooler to utilize the full potential of this bang for your buck CPU. I would argue this is one of the best values on the market at this time.

    Great price and value for an i5 thanks to the lack of integrated graphics (so a separate GPU is required). The bundled fan has been sufficient for me so far. The fan has a plastic wire hook on one side which sticks out ever so slightly so make sure to orient it so it's not in the way of anything on small motherboards.

    If you don't plan on overclocking and want an Intel build, this will do a great job. I could have saved on my build if the stock cooler wasn't so ugly.

    from completed build Transitioning to Mini ITX

    It's a cheaper and newer 8400. Been able to handle anything I throw at it along with the 1080.

    I do need to watch out for background software being silly. Didn't have to do that with my 8700k but thats also more than twice the cost.

    Looking forward to using this long term.

    from completed build Mini Itx Gaming PC

    6 core cpu with better single core preformance than a ryzen 5 2600. Would recommend if you're ONLY gaming. If not, Ryzen's the way to go.

    Solid CPU, great entry i5. Turbos just fine, and is relatively cool.

    from completed build Tall, Dark & Get Some

    Chosen mostly as a counterpart to the i5-9400 in my other build with the same case. Saving some money on the F type processor made sense here as the GPU will support more than enough monitors for an emphasis on gaming.
