Much faster than expected

And idles at 32c with an Arctic Freezer 34 CO cooler. The integrated graphics work just as good as my GTX 1050 on a 4k monitor for what I use it for, so I'm not going to even bother to install the card in this new system.

Truly Amazing!

Intel outdid themselves! Best bang for your buck with integrated graphics. Certainly can benefit from liquid cooling but comes with an attractive, copper-core, black cooler.

Hi, Gabriel. We use suffix as a key indicator of the processor’s capabilities. The processors with the letter "K" indicate they are unlocked. The Core™ i5-11500 Processor does not belong to this line, so no, it is not overclockable. Thank you for choosing Intel.
