Core I5 9600K Pre-Binned 5.0GHZ (COFFEE LAKE) Socket LGA1151 Processor OEM

The Intel i5 9600K is part of the 9th generation Core 9000 series, known as Coffee Lake-S.

A CPU made for enthusiasts, it improves on its predecessors, supporting impressive clock speeds and optimised boost functions. This i5 9600K has been pre-binned to 5.0 Ghz. The advantage of buying a pre-binned CPU from OcUK is that its performance will match the specification. Generally the performance of individual CPUs cannot be guaranteed due to variation in manufacturing, this situation being known as the Silicon Lottery. However by carefully pre binning chips before sale OcUK has verified their performance. Pick up your pre-binned i5 9600K from OcUK today!

The Intel Core i5-9600K at a glance:

  • Base clock speed of 3.7 GHz
  • Intel Optane Memory support
  • AES-NI encryption
  • Intel vPro technology
  • Intel TXT
  • Intel Device Protection with Boot Guard
  • Intel VT-d virtualization technology for directed I/O

Advanced Next Gen CPUs from Intel

Today many tasks require substantial CPU power, from gaming to video editing and live streaming. The Core i5-9600k take performance to the next level. It has a Base Clock of 3.7 GHz and, due to pre-binning, OcUK can guarantee a boost clock speed of 5.0 Ghz. As well as that, the i5-9600k supports DDR4-RAM operating at 2666 MHz in Dual-Channel Mode.

When it comes to integrated graphics, the processor includes Intel HD Graphics UHD 630. With 24 Execution Units this offers more than enough graphical power to make effective use of Intel Quick Sync, GPU Computing and of course gaming. Furthermore the GPU supports DirectX 12 with Feature-Level 12_1, OpenGL 4.5 and OpenCL 2.0 in addition to 4K- and UHD resolution playback at 60 Hz via DisplayPort.

Overclockers UK Pre-Binned: Performance Guaranteed

What are Pre-Binned CPUs?

All CPU's can hit the boost clock as advertised but not all 'K' chips can surpass it due to minute imperfections in the silicon. Not a single CPU is created equally and all perform differently with less than 5% being able to perform to our highest guaranteed frequency. Pre-Binned CPU's remove what is known as the silicon lottery and allow you to buy one of the most capable CPU's in the world.

8Pack at work

High performance, overclockable CPUs are highly prized and would cost an individual tens of thousands of pounds to manually source and test hundreds of processors finding less than a 'handful' of what are required to make the grade. Why spend more? Save the hard work for us!

How are CPUs 'Binned'?

Each CPU is individually tested by the world renowned Overclocker 8Pack on specially designed testing rigs which utilise the very latest Maximus XI Hero and 8pack 3200Mhz RAM. Each rig has been configured to utilise pre-determined voltages and settings which allow 8Pack to determine what the silicon is capable of. The CPU's are graded into categories with the very highest being De-Lidded and used in our 8Pack and Infin8 systems with any excess being sold as pre binned. Any CPUs that don't meet the standards required are not simply put back into stock but held for projects or used in any of our machines destined for events.

8pack delidded CPU

What is De-Lidding and are there thermal benefits?

All of the CPU's that make the grade are de-Lidded. This is a process of whereby the CPU's IHS (Integrated Heat Spreader) is momentarily removed and the TIM (Thermal Interface Material) is replaced with one that has far superior heat transfer properties such as Liquid Metal. The technique of De-Lidding can reduce load temperatures on average by 5-10°c offering the ultimate in overclocking thermal performance.

does what it says

Runs 5GHz stable although Ive not yet pushed it further or settled the voltages. Opted for a pre-binned one because I had a 4670K which was a dog and wouldnt overclock at all previous to this so didnt want to take the risk.
