Intel Core i5-8500 3.00GHz Socket LGA1151 Desktop CPU SR3XE

$45.00

The 8th generation of Intel Core processors, codenamed “Coffee Lake,” was launched starting in the second half of 2017. This generation marked a significant enhancement in core count across various segments, notably introducing 6-core processors in the mainstream desktop lineup, and extending up to 8 cores in subsequent releases. Coffee Lake CPUs were manufactured using the 14nm++ process technology, offering improvements in performance and energy efficiency compared to the preceding Kaby Lake architecture, which used a 14nm+ process.

Coffee Lake offered a broad spectrum of processors catering to various markets, from budget-friendly options to high-performance CPUs for enthusiasts and professionals. One of the distinguishing features of this generation was the augmented core and thread counts, providing a notable leap in multi-threaded performance compared to previous generations. The processors also supported DDR4 memory, and while the official maximum speed was 2666 MHz for some CPUs, many motherboards and chipsets allowed for memory overclocking far beyond this. Coffee Lake CPUs utilized the LGA 1151 socket, albeit with a different pin configuration compared to 6th and 7th generation processors, necessitating new motherboards despite the physical socket appearing identical. The 8th generation brought substantial enhancements in computational capabilities, particularly in multi-threaded workloads, further solidifying Intel’s offerings for various computing needs and applications.

Description

About this Intel CPU:

This Intel CPU has been tested and pulled from working systems. Some scratches and scrapes may be present on the heat spreader, but these cosmetic imperfections do not affect functionality. We make every effort to remove all thermal paste; however, some residue may still remain.

Please ensure compatibility between your motherboard and this processor before purchasing.

8th Generation note.
The 8th generation Intel Core processors, known as Coffee Lake, used the LGA 1151 socket. However, it’s crucial to note that while the socket was physically the same as the LGA 1151 used by the 6th (Skylake) and 7th (Kaby Lake) generation processors, the pin configuration and power delivery were different. Consequently, 8th generation processors required new motherboards, specifically those with the Intel 300 series chipsets, despite sharing the LGA 1151 socket name.

Common compatibility errors can lead to a non-functional product after installation.

When installing processors, it is essential to follow the manufacturer’s guidelines. Even minor damage to the receiving pins on Intel motherboards during or before installation can result in nonfunctional or improperly functioning processors or systems.
