The i5-9600K is Intel's most powerful 9th Generation i5 CPU. It has 6 cores, each running at 3.7 GHz. The "K" in the name means that it unlocked, so it is overclockable.

It includes integrated UHD 630 graphics. If you plan on using a dedicated graphics card, the i5-9600KF is the exact same chip without graphics, so you could possibly save a few dollars going that route.

This requires a 300 series Socket LGA 1151 motherboard.

In our CompUSA Performance Benchmark, this scored 194. The i7-9700K is considerably faster at 261, as is the Ryzen 5 3600 at 318.
