Intel Core i5-8600K overview

  • 1Description

The Intel Core i5-8600K 3.6 GHz 6-Core LGA 1151 Processor provides six cores with each one operating between 3.6 and 4.3 GHz for editing digital content, streaming live gameplay, and running other types of intensive tasks. If you need more performance, you can overclock the cores to function above its maximum frequency. This 8th-generation Intel Core i5-8600K processor is built on Coffee Lake architecture and armed with 9MB of cache memory. The processor is compatible with motherboards that sport an LGA 1151 socket and an Intel Z370 chipset, so the CPU can provide up to sixteen PCIe 3.0 lanes for NVMe storage drives, graphics cards, and other high-performance parts.

Intel has equipped the Intel Core i5-8600K processor with an integrated Intel UHD Graphics 630 chipset that outputs up to 4K visuals through your motherboard's DisplayPort and HDMI ports. When connected to a DisplayPort-enabled monitor, the Intel UHD Graphics 630 can produce 4096 x 2304 resolution at 60 Hz. Running under a 4K resolution lets you enjoy ultra high-definition videos as well as view more information onscreen when compared to working in a lower resolution workspace.

Aside from graphics, the Intel Core i5-8600K processor has an average power requirement of 95W and supports DDR4 2666 MHz memory modules, running in a dual- or single-channel configuration.

    Intel Core i5-8600K reviews

    Core i5-8600K 3.6 GHz 6-Core LGA 1151 Processor is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 12.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Processor For The Money This is an excellent CPU for a powerful build on a budget.� The performance is top notch and its overclocking capabilities are outstanding.� I matched it to an ASRock Z370 PRo4 with 16 GB GSkill Tridentz DDR4 RAM and a Samsung 850 Pro 1 TB SSD for a no frills system and I'm happy to say it not only met, but far exceeded all of my expectations.� I have it running perfectly stable at over 4.5 GHz just barely pushing 60 C under torture test with a Cooler Master MasterLiquid Lite 120 CPU cooler.� I have nothing negative to say about this processor other than perhaps they are at a premium and hard to find in stock as of late November '17.� It is simply superb.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far no issues, although i am easy to please Great CPU so far, easy install as expected and fully compatible with the z370's. I got it mainly to future proof, as for now i am not noticing a whole lot of difference between this and my overclocked 2500k. But i know in the near future my 2500k wouldn't be able to hold up, especially when i add a stronger GPU than this gtx 1060. I highly recommend this CPU, either this one or the one below it. Sweet spot for gamers, and able to handle many tasks at once.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it. Paired with a 1060 6GB and it runs everything I've tossed at it at default clock speed. Not really into overclocking so I don't have an opinion on that.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Muito bom para a nova gera��o Utilizo na minha 370 e nao sinto falta de uma i7

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's the new Celeron 300A overclock champ. I'm rock solid @ 4.8 Ghz 6 cores , stock voltage, and an out of box auto tune. On big air, @ 6,000' elevation (15% less cooling). 5.2 Ghz 4 cores. Temps are fine, I figure I can get a few hundred Mhz more with some voltage and hand tuning. The envelop the chip's box shipped in resulted in it being smashed. The chip inside was fine despite the box being 1/2 the height it should have been. B&H can do better.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Preforms excellent so far I really don't know anything about computers. I just know that this is the most recent and that is why i got it to hopefully future-proof my build for several years because I don't want to have to spend to update an older processor in a couple years.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from very fast for gaming & rendering, satisfied placed an order on Wednesday, May 30, 2018 arrived on Sunday, June 03, 2018 well packed and safe. i <3 BH

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from No Sure if this Intel or somehow I missed the descriptions Just plain old CPU, and nothing else (i.e. no standard stock heat sink and fan that always comes with the box), it would cost another $100 for cooling.
