    "Intel has pretty much always been the king of the processor market place and still is with the 8th Gen Core i5-8400 Processor. The huge 12 megabyte on board cache, 6 cores, and 3.7ghz processing speed mean you'll be blazing fast on any first person shooter. Perfect go to chip for all hard core gamers."

    "This processor dominates I came from a fx8350 overlooked to 4.9 ghz to this processor for gaming there is a huge difference not in over all higher frames per second I would say but my 1% and .1% lows are much higher leading to overall a much better experience believe it or not even though I'm using a conventional harddrive I can tell this thing is a bit more responsive my noquada d15 got a stable overlook of 4.9 I could get 5.0 but I had to pump so much power into the chip I wanted nothing to do with it I'd consider my cpu as far as overclocking ever so slightly above average some have gotten to 5.0 or higher the worst I've herd was 4.7"

    "I was never someone who knew a lot about computers. They all seemed the same to me. Apparently that's not the case. I bought a laptop with a Celeron processor and it was slow as hell. Talked to my nephew and he advised me to buy take it back and get another one with a faster processor. I bought another one and this is the processor it had in it. The difference was like night and day."

    "Intel 8th Gen i5-8400 Processor is the latest in the Intel i5 computer processor line and it is available from Amazon for $189.99. It has 6 cores and 6 threads and runs 2.80 GHZ. Power usage is also been improved in the 8th gen. This has been a place where intel has made great strides ever since the 6th gen. This looks to be a great processor but I would say it is not the best i5. I think the 8600 series is going to claim that title."

    "I love Intel because it is a top of the line processor and this fits the bill. The processor seems to make my computer faster and perform better. I also like how much better it makes my gaming experience."

    "For the price, this Intel Processor packs quite the punch. My gaming quality has never lagged. The only issue I had is that this gets hotter than I've experienced. I updated the cooling component in my computer and all is good now."

    "This processors is hands down the best thing I've ever put in a computer. My old computer is now faster than models that are brand new. I can now do things that was impossible in the past."

    "I'm not a huge fan of this cpu. If all I want to do is game, then yeah it's great. But I only game sometimes. The rest of the time, I'm running application windows, I've got seventeen browser tabs open, I'm streaming music, I'm running VLC, and a bunch of other stuff. I need a cpu that handles multithreading. And one that's not going to break the bank even as it tops out on cycles."

    "It's an Intel i5 - probably the best value overall, as it's not as weak as the i3, but holds its own with the i7, especially with mutli-core capable software. It's been rock solid on my system, and I never have to worry about a piece of software not working for me."

    "Amazing performance. Definitely worth it, overclocks to 4.8ghz without having to change voltage. I can tell this thing is a bit more responsive my noquada d15 got a stable overlook of 4.9 I could get 5.0 but I had to pump so much power into the chip"

    "This core processor is an advanced processor. It’s worth the money if you have an Intel 300 series chipset, otherwise you’re out of luck with this product. I would try to find a solution that is more versatile. "

    "Very nice mid-range CPU. Great price for the performance you get out of it. All I had to do was plug it in and change a few settings in the BIOs and it was ready to go. Huge upgrade from my old processor."
