    "The price was a bit high for the chip but I went ahead with it anyway. It is a deal in the long run, my laptop felt like a brand new computer. Defineitely cheap that buying a new computer and setting that up. This is the corvette of the processors. Pricey but definitely worth the extra money."

    "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 wanted to get the best Intel i5 CPU for my needs. I found the Intel Core i5-7600K LGA 1151 Desktop processor. This processor is amazing. It's super fast and does everything I need for what I do with my newly built computer. It's fast enough for the gaming I do and works great for Photoshop and Illustrator work. I don't need anything faster than this. If you're looking for the best i5 chip, this is it!"
