This may sound like a dumb question, but aren't these processors supposed to be surface mounted in an SMT line to the PCB? How can a normal person buy a processor and attach it to the board in the PC?
No you just, drop it in the socket.

If you are going to upgrade everything, because this processor probably wont run on your old mobo, then wait and see what type of fix Intel integrates into the late 9th and early 10th generation CPU. All their mitigation to avoid speculative execution attacks are causing a reduction in performance. One fix reduces it by as much as 15% and another by 20% if you turn off HyperThreading. They never published a cumulative performance hit with all the different patches installed. Probably to avoid bad publicity and lawsuits.
Thanks for your response and everyone else who responded. Ya I didn't realize it wouldn't work with my motherboard Gigabyte GA-H110M-S2H GSM because there are 2 different LGA1151s. I'll stick with what i have until I can get an i5-6500 to a i7-6700K for a steal of a price.

Excellent point about the BIOS--I've run into that problem where I didn't flash an MB and couldn't boot--had to vivisect another machine to solve that one.

I always keep a spare (cheap) gfx card around to avoid the issue you had (right now it's a 2GB GT 1030 I picked up for $30 on eBay). Given that the IGU costs $60 (i5-9400 is $190), the economist in me has trouble agreeing with the always-buy-with-IGU logic. Smilie
Yea I bricked a 2004 era iMac DV because my brother brought me to his office to update it to OS X from os 9 and went to Starbucks, came back to an iMac the same shade of blue as my balls, worked all summer to get that thing used from a friend's dad only to find out it needed a firmware update to disable the let the smoke out upon OS update feature

I passed on this cpu for 8600 for 2 reasons

Integrated gpu comes in handy when your super expensive nvidia Rtx takes a dump, like mine did couple months back

Can't use this for 370 series mobo even though it's literally the same as 390(minus some minor upgrades) due to microcode needed for 9 gen to work on 8th gen mobo, you could use it after getting a 8th gen cpu to upgrade the minor code, but that kinda beats the point

Built a machine with this chip and Asus motherboard...runs great! First time in a while where I didn't have to fuss with bios and drivers to get things to run reliably with a new build.

You could pick up a R5 2600 or 2600X for around the same price. Bundle it together with a B450 board and you're good to go with additional threads.

If you are asking this question it means that it still running good.
Just keep running it until you feel that it's slow. Tech change all the time so no need to always go with latest and greatest Smilie

The Z370 chip is a bit overkill for a locked CPU don't you think? Any B360M mobo should work and costs a lot cheaper than the 370s. Just wait for them to go down as they all seem to have increased in price. I got my B360M mobo for less than $60 earlier this year.
The problem with those B360 Chipset motherboards is that you give up a lot of features and functionality for slightly less money, if any savings. They are just overpriced, as you kind of mentioned yourself. I recently got a nice mint used Z370 board for about the same price B360 boards are going for new.

Clearly, you had no idea what you were doing or what you're talking about. My advice is to leave the computer work to professionals, who know what they are doing.
