Unlocked 9th Gen 9600KF i5 Processor without iGPU
DESIGNED FOR THE WORLD’S BEST GAMERSExperience exceptional performance, immersive entertainment and simple convenience with 9th Gen Intel Core processors. The i5 9600KF processor extends all the capabilities that users love from previous generation CPUs with even more advanced innovations that deliver new levels of performance immersing you into your computer on a variety of form factors. The Intel 9600KF CPU is unlocked allowing you to overclock it to your gaming or production needs for additional performance headroom. The 9600KF also ditches integrated graphics which further increases performance on systems where only a dedicated GPU can deliver the graphics power you need.
Please Note: Although the Intel 9th CPUs are compatible with a range of Intel 300-series motherboards utilizing the LGA 1151 socket, for optimum power delivery, maximum performance, & the best possible overclocking experience, we recommend using a Intel Z390 motherboard with these processors.
The Intel Core i5 9600KF processor DOES NOT feature an iGPU. A discrete graphics card MUST be installed in your system in order to output to a display.
Intel i5 9600KF Performance
GAME, RECORD AND STREAM WITHOUT COMPROMISEThe 9th Generation Intel Core processors redefine mainstream desktop PC performance. The i5 9600K features six cores for more processing power. The Unlocked feature on this chip allows for overclocking enabling you to tweak the performance and also ditches integrated graphics which further increases performance on systems where only a dedicated GPU can deliver the graphics power you need. Intel Turbo Boost technology has also increased the maximum turbo frequency of 4.6 GHz, and it features up to 9 MB of cache memory. The 9th gen i5 processor allows you to enjoy excellent gaming and VR experiences.
Immersive VR Experience
put yourself in the game
A high-performance processor is key to achieving a balanced platform to make your VR experiences great. Attach your premium head-mounted display (HMD) to an Intel Core i9, i7, i5 or i3 processor based PC, and prepare to be amazed. The performance of the 9600KF processor allows for an ultra smooth virtual reality experience. Keep in mind that great VR experiences involve the entire platform, not just any one component. The ideal combination of processor, graphics, I/O connectivity, display, and audio are required, but be assured that this 9th Gen i5 Intel Processor won’t let you down.

Push Past the Limit with Overclocking!
WHAT IS OVERCLOCKING?Increase processing power by fine-tuning your system to run your processor at higher settings than the default specification.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?Higher processor settings can allow you to increase game configurations, play at higher frame rates and enable smoother gameplay for the ultimate gaming experience.
HOW EASY IS IT TO OVERCLOCK?Intel® XTU is an overclocking toolkit that lets you easily change your settings and benchmark speeds to tune your system to its highest possible frequency.
•Maximum processor frequency with Intel Turbo Boost 2.0.
•Altering clock frequency or voltage may damage or reduce the useful life of the processor and other system components, and may reduce system stability and performance. Product warranties may not apply if the processor is operated beyond its specifications. Check with the manufacturers of system and components for additional details.
