    Perfect for gaming systems

    This CPU does not have imbedded graphics, so you would need a graphic card in your system. If you are doing CAD, Image processing or Games then this is not a Robles for you. It’s less $$$ and just as fast as the i5-9400 and if you get (or have) a motherboard that supports the higher speeds, you will get the 4.1 Turbo boost. Although it comes with a Heat Sink and Fan (already has the Thermal Paste too) and work fine for the Turbo, if you want to overclock it, you should upgrade the heatsink/fan (I am not overclocking mine). Installation is straight forward and using a Gigabyte Aorus Pro (z390 chipset) it is more than enough speed. It was on sale when I purchased it (when Best Buy has a sale, you can’t beat the price).

    Excellent budget gaming when on sale

    At a price point under $150, this chip is a good purchase. I would ignore the 2.9 GHz if you are using any decent cooling other than the included one. On decent cooling it will spend most of its time in 3.9 GHz range with all cores boosted. Only time I see low GHz is when chip is idle or very light load in background. Any active time it's 3.8 GHz-4.1 Ghz although 4.0 GHz and 4.1 GHz are rare as most workloads will use more than a couple cores. I would recommend this chip if you are Intel camp, need a cpu, can get it on sale, and don't want to wait on newer hardware. If you find it $129 and under it's a great deal. Anything over $150, go AMD r5 3600 unless you already have an Intel 300 series board.

    Great Processor

    Posted .

    I5-9400 Is a great price to performance Sweet Spot. Excellent FPS for gaming, six cores is also good enough for video editing and general multitasking use. The particular processor that I bought from Best Buy benchmarks at around 97% versus others. I highly recommend the ninth generation processors over earlier versions, because of the soldered thermal interface, no delidding necessary to obtain good cooling.

    The best thing is the price, you have a nine generation i5 processor for a cheaper price. I have this processor with a rtx2060 and 16gb ram so I can play games in 4k high graphics settings with no problems.

    Not Bad

    It's an i5-9400f. No on-board graphics, which isn't a big deal if you plan to have a graphics card separately. It's a lower-powered 6-core i5, so you won't need a fancy cooler, but having one for a 9th gen Intel CPU isn't a bad idea. If you can't deal with an i3, but don't want to spend for the 9600K or higher, this isn't a bad choice. Do note the newer 10th Gen Intel CPUs are out now though, and may be the better option. Also, do look at AMD CPUs as well, as they have made tremendous strides and may be a better fit for what you want to do.

    Time passed by and pc was a decade old. This works really well for what our family is using it for. AMD just came out with some great processors, but they seemed more geared for gaming. This is mostly used as a Plex Server & some other office type usage. The price was great!

    Great CPU for Most Tasks

    Posted .

    This is a great CPU for everyday computer applications. It can be overclocked (up to 4.1 GHz). It does require a separate graphic card. Make sure that it is compatible with your motherboard before you buy it (Intel 300 Series Motherboard with a Socket LGA 1151). And get a compatible cooler for it.

    I matched this CPU against a fourth generation i7, and in my informal testing this i5 showed to be the superior CPU. Not having the onboard GPU is not an issue in that I've run dedicated video cards for ages.
