The Intel Core i5-11400F is one of the best bang for buck CPU that money can buy. It offers excellent performance in gaming and editing for a really reasonable price and also offers PCIe Gen 4 support. It can be paired with powerful GPU's such as an RTX 3060 Ti and will not produce any bottleneck and can equal the performance of its higher end variants also.

Me too....The K version brings value for money with OC potential.....This one is locked and so no. Not building a system these days with a locked cpu.

That's just me of course. Can't speak for others.

No integrated graphics card so you have to buy a video card to run it .you can buy the 11400 at microcenter $for $169 it has integrated graphics and you could build computer now and wait 4 months for video card prices to drop

Sure, if you're one of the fortunate few to live close enough to a Micro Center that the cost of gas to get there and back doesn't amount to more than just buying it online...

That's the problem with Intel. They go out of their way to nickel & dime the enthusiast crowd. "Locking" is artificial. They could do nothing at it would be "unlocked". With AMD simply not locking anything and keeping their socket, I feel a lot less disrespected.

Maybe others don't feel the same way, but I don't like to buy things when I feel insulted.

4 months now? That seems optimistic considering it will be near Christmas.

Well no wonder it's cheap. It's tough getting a current gen graphics card these days, and it's kind of a waste to pair a current gen CPU with an older graphics card.

While I do agree with that, team reds chips are usually as high as it will go though but I'm rocking a 5600x and it's a beast. I think the disrespect comes from constant socket changes every couple years…

The i5-11400 is the best budget CPU for gaming right now, finally taking down the reigning champ the Ryzen 3600.

The F sku means it does not have integrated graphics. You will need a discrete GPU to use this. If you don't have an old video card lying around, get the 11400 sku, not the 11400F. The Intel integrated graphics are pretty terrible anyway and should really only be an option as a last resort.

Not having a K at the end of the sku means it's not overclockable. There is no K sku 11400. For that you'll need to upgrade to an 11600k which is like $70 more expensive.

For those who just want a budget CPU and aren't going to be fiddling around with overclocking anyway, this is the best bang for your buck.

So for some scenarios, if you have a 1030 or better GPU lying around, this is your best price to performance. If you don't, I would wait for the Ryzen 5600G. It has significantly better integrated graphics than the 11400, but it's going to $80 more expensive.

But you know it will perform to spec. Intel isn't locking them or disabling graphics for the sake of more SKUs. They're disabling the still present GPU core if it has defects. Likewise they're binning their chips and reserving the best performing for K SKUs. Silicon lottery is unavoidable and it saves them from discarding chips, especially when there are huge shortages.

Not sure why you think it will be much better in 4 months. I'm a dealer (26+ years) and at full production capability it will take 14-24 months to fill orders. I get cards every week and my cost is slightly over MSRP and I must buy other items to get allocated. I have some orders going back to last October. ETA's come and go most times they just get kicked back a few months. I have orders not predicted to be filled till November.

If you want to overclock you will want a Z490 or Z590 chipset board. The lower model boards are not really designed for overclocking and also don't use memory the same way.
