This processor also supports 128GB of dual-channel 2666 MHz DDR4 RAM and utilizes 10th-generation technology.

Graphically, the Core i5-10600K uses the integrated Intel UHD Graphics 630 chipset, which has a base frequency of 350 MHz and a dynamic frequency of 1.2 GHz. If you need even more performance, this processor is unlocked, which lets you overclock the processor over its maximum speed. However, this is not recommended, as it will void the limited 3-year warranty.

Please note that this processor does not include a heatsink or fan and requires a separately-sold CPU cooling solution.

This is the perfect CPU for home office. It is versatile and fast.

solid mid-tier processor - good value

By Matthew
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2021-04-27

his processor is a good value for those who are building a computer primarily use for gaming (which benefits must from higher clock speeds) than for other creative/productivity tasks, which benefit from higher core counts.

solid mid-tier GPU

By Matthew
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2021-04-22

This GPU has plenty of power for most gaming applications. Sure, it's not top-of-the-line, but it has a relatively high base clock and boost clock for the money - which makes it a good value for most gamers, who won't need the extra cores/threads that more expensive processors have on offer.

This is a huge value cpu, it cannot be beat price to performance. Most people do not even need 6 cores, and this will oc to compete with cpus costing 3 times as much.The 300a of its day.

WAY good cpu

This thing has POWER, i haven't even gotten it to heat up over 70c yet. And my favorite part is that it was over-clocking at 4.5GHz and i didn't even know till i looked at task manager. For only being an i5, this cpu is a BEAST
