  1. Ken Wickert

    Great processor for the moneyEasy to install, it has built in graphics and I’m pleased the speed and quality of the graphics

  2. Sage AG Supply

    Quick and Inexpensive setup for gaming/server builds.Clean and good performance runs a custom server perfectly. Good single core performance even when not overclocked.

  3. Mohammed Aminur Rahman

    You missed out if you didn’t buy it on prime day.This was going for $150! 150.. is a lot less for a 4.8 ghz CPU, insane deal happy with it and it works

    Great bang for the buck for workstation use for CAD & Office apps + more!I recently posted a (belated) review for the ITX Gigaybte mobo I bought, but it was mated to this 10th gen processor which is running strong!I was on the fence of going with an i9/i7 but the cost at the time didn’t really make sense as I was pleasantly surprised how well an i5 performs on the tasks that I need it to.I have a pre-built personal computer that has an 9th gen i9 and that computer that utilizes the same ITX form factor and is less stable than this one that I built; performance wise, I feel this workstation seems a little “zippier”. As “underpowered” as it would be on paper, this 10th gen i5 does a fantastic job with 2D drafting, 3D modeling (Dialux), Word, Excel, Bluebeam, Zoom/Teams, etc.

    Great for gamingIve been running this for 2 yr + and have had no issues even with big triple a titles. I use it with a 3060ti, 32gb ram and an ssd and the only game it bottlenecks on is java minecraft of all games lol, but thats a software problem with minecraft itself not the cpu.

    Intel i9 Performance for $230..So, I know AMD has become the dominate force in CPU’s but when I couldn’t get ahold of a Ryzen 5 5600X and I heard AMD was having a lot of chips failing I decided to go with the i5-10600K “Especially when the price dropped from $260 to $230” This chip though it has a 125w TDP runs very cool with my 240mm Fractal S24 Prisma AIO (Idle Temps inside a Corsair 4000D case are around 81-82 Degrees “F” Inside a room that stays around 72-73F)CPU has some serious Overclocking Room. Gamer Nexus showed this CPU beating out a i9 in Gaming with proper RAM and CPU Overclocking, and the results are repeatable because I’ve tested this myself and found this CPU to be a little monster for Gaming performance. We all know the i5-9600K was the best Gaming CPU for the longest time and the i5-10600K is basically just a i5-9600K 2.0 that’s been revised and improved.At the $230 price tag I would highly suggest this CPU to anyone who wants to stick with Intel and running on the LGA1200 socket. (Please keep in mind that my results are on a water cooled AIO setup so please don’t expect the same results)PC Setup:Case: Corsair 4000D Air FlowMOB: ASUS Rog Z490 E (DO NOT SUGGEST THIS BOARD OR COMPANY!!)CPU: i5-10600KRAM: Corsair Vengeance Pro RGB 3200Mhz (16gb Kit)AIO: Fractal Prisma S24 AIO 240mmGPU: EVGA FTW2 1070TiPSU: Seasonic GX750 Gold 750wSSD: Samsung EVO 840 (1TB) WD Blue (500gb)This has been a very strong setup for the money so far, so feel free to copy of it what you want.I just wouldn’t use the ASUS Z490E “It arrived broken and ASUS refused to help me at all, so I ended up having to solder and Super Glue on a $300 board to fix the damage from the factory”

    Works Excellently with an MSI MAG Z490 Tomahawk and Ubuntu LinuxFollowing advice on a website for Linux Gaming builds, I chose the combination of Intel i5-10600K desktop processor and MSI MAG Z490 Tomahawk motherboard, This combination works extremely well with Ubuntu 21.10 and the Linux 5.13 kernel. I use MSI’s XMP (all the time) and CPU Boost (some of the time). Very stable, and not excessively hot. I combine this setup with Corsair Vengeance LPX 32GB DDR4 3600 (PC4-28800) C18 1.35V desktop memory and a tower cooler. Check the fitting of the tower cooler before you buy. I had to go back and get a Noctua NH-D15S to have enough room for memory clearance. Modern gaming motherboards don’t allow room for much besides a very carefully-designed tower cooler.

    Top 3 processor for gaming (2020)This processor is fantastic but has since been superseded by intels 12th gen processors. I’d recommend looking at some old Gamer’s Nexus videos to see how this cpu performed historically, especially if you’re in the market for 2nd hand cpu’s for a cheaper build.
