Intel® Core™ i5-9600K up to 4.60GHz Hexa Core Unlocked Processor


The 9th Generation Intel Core i5 offers a complete performance that will handle AAA games and cruise through any work you have to throw at it, immerse yourself in 4K UHD content for as long as you like and edit videos to your hearts content.

Weighing in with a base clock speed of 3.7GHz and the ability to push that up to 4.6GHz when needed - Unprecedented speed for this price point that runs through 6 cores and 6 threads while maintaining the stability of 95 TDP.

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.

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

Does everything I need


7 months ago

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.


8 months ago

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.


8 months ago

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.

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
