9th Generation Intel Core i5 Processor

9th Generation Intel processors have introduced the new Solder Thermal Interface Material (STIM) for a more efficient heat transfer that gives greater control over temperatures when overclocking and using your PC for long periods of time. Perfect for the power user or expert gamer who demand lower temperatures under heavy use. Fine tune your overclock with the free Intel® Extreme Tuning Utility (XTU) to get the maximum performance. The i5 9600K uses 14nm architecture and a 9MB cache for a balanced performance that doesn’t break the bank.


Intel® Turbo Boost Technology 2.0

Intel Turbo Boost 2.0 technology brilliantly accelerates processor and graphics performance for peak loads and helps the CPU distribute power through the cores. As Hyper Threading has been turned off for the new range, the boost you get from the Turbo feature does not overheat the processor. DirectX 12 Support helps with optimization when running large apps and even 4K content at 60Hz.

Great value for money, the inter-grated graphics can run such games as, Arma 3,Minecraft and war thunder decently well. Havent got a GPU so its a decent compromise for now.

Its a excellent product no problems.

Had a MSI motherboard from the auctions for couple of quid and a few other computer bits.Required an eighth/ninth generation intel chip,so asked CCL if this one had onboard graphics and if it would work on my motherboard. They confirmed it, and the price being cheaper than elsewhere, ordered it and received 3 days later. Got to set up my new computer set up and it LIVES.Also found with the motherboard, could enable TPM easily, genuine Win ten for 40.A bargain all round

Haven't over clocked yet, supposed to have a much larger capacity for it tho. However, has ran well and upped my games running and smoothness. All other activities ie applications, programs have all ran seemingless ad maintains it's temp well. Easy to install, especially for a first time builder.

Excellent price and customer service

Excellent processor. Turbo boosts up to 4.3ghz (multi-core). Probably the best value for money cpu on the market.


May 2020

Works out of the box using the graphics with a 27 inch Dell at 1440 and it copes well.


January 2020

Does everything I need


December 2019

Excellent CPU/ turbos up to 4.6 GHz as it should. not had any problems was gonna go for the i5 9600KF as I don't need CPU graphics but it was basically the same price so why not. Good CPU for games and work.


November 2019

Significantly faster than my 3770K. 6 cores should be enough for pretty much any game around at the moment and K chips have the option to be overclocked.


November 2019

this at stock on my z390 Aorus alutra is running at 4.3 ghz can be clocked to 5 ghz not bad for an i5 9th gen great buy.


May 2019

Intel isn't the cheapest and I may have a touch of buyer's remorse considering the latest AMD releases (if you're reading this go by a 3rd gen Ryzen instead, they wipe the floor with these) and my silicon wasnt the mightiest, barely getting 4.6 on OC. Other than that it's super stable and handles everything I throw at it no problem.


May 2019

Great chip, easy to overclock. Currently running at 4.8GHz with no issues.

Gary Haward

Outstanding speeds


May 2019

Brought this as high clock speed was more important to me than having loads of cores/threads. Have only managed to over-clock to a 24/7 stable all core 4.7ghz which is a bit disappointing with a custom watercooling loop. Overclocking headroom is a matter of luck so I can't fault the product and it does everything as advertised just can't help wondering if I'd been better off with a Ryzen 7x though...


February 2019

Great product but can't seem to get it over 4.7Ghz with a H75. Still lightning fast for it's price!


February 2019

Got trouble getting the full potential out of this (4.7Ghz max), but this could be a cooling problem. Still great performance for the price.

Great CPU and low temperature, perfect to be overclocked
