    It's just CPU.

    Was going to go for the 8400 but snagged the 8500 when it went on sale for a price lower than the 8400. Great CPU overall, no overclocking but performance has been more than sufficient. At some point I may upgrade to either the 8600k or 8700k.

    So far an excellent processor. The 6 cores were worth it. Runs tabs, games, and windows with no hassle.

    Can't give a performance based review on this just yet, but based on my research this was a good choice for the price point. We would get better multicore performance with an AMD equivalent but when I discussed this with my friend he wanted to focus on gaming rather than editing given the choice.

    My only frustration with this CPU is that it has made me realize how bad my timing was in building my own system. I originally planned on installing an i5-7600k or i7-7700k in place of my Pentium G4560. A few months later the Coffee Lake family came out. I know that the actual difference in performance from Kaby to Coffee lake won't be horribly noticeable for my daily use, but it drives me crazy that I will be spending $200-350 for an unlocked processor that is outperformed by locked processors that can be bought for $20-100 less.

    The chip is exactly what I ordered, so not much to review here.

    I did opt for the non-K versions while pricing these out because I was not planning on overclocking, and wanted to see how I liked the stock CPU fans. My review will be based solely on the included fan and instructions.

    The Fan has factory applied thermal paste, which was in good clean condition and no additional thermal paste was needed. The instructions left a bit to be desired, regardless to the fact that installation is relatively straight forward. The only issue I ran into was the push clips were already turned in the LOCK position which made it difficult at first to push the clips into place. Once I realized they were locked, it was easy enough to turn them, release the locking pins and push the clips into place.

    The instructions have NO words for instructions, just a picture. Again, this is getting picky because the installation is straight forward and easy.
