    Works as expected. I have not overclocked this yet.

    One of the best valued cpus. I overclocked it to 5.0 GHZ at a safe voltage and ran a 12 hour stress test. It passed but sometimes randomly crashed due to this overclock after not even using it at 100% for over an hour. I used a air cooler (Hyper Master RGB). I am pretty happy with this and highly recommend this for a higher mid-range gaming cpu. UPDATE: I lowered it too 4.9 and seems to work fine.

    This CPU is amazing, it offers superb 1080p and 1440p gaming performance and also great single core/thread speed. Paired with a capable motherboard, this processor can really shine when overclocked. Temperatures - from what I've seen - are good, and this CPU offers a noticeable step up from the i5-9400F by giving higher frame rates and faster load times. The difference between this, the 9600KF, and the well-known 9600K is that the F means no integrated graphics. This can be a good thing (usually saves some money) but also a bad thing (troubleshooting a video card issue can become problematic).
