Literally no context here at all.  Budget?  Other specs?  Are you a cheap ass or a baller?

If you get the KF, just make sure you have a dedicated GPU. If you already have one, you might as well save the $40, but if you don't have a GPU, get the K so you can use your system.

My bad. I'm planning on spending around $1200 on a PC and Monitor. Here is the list: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/qzpNK3

11600KF isn't worth the extra 20% to me. Also you don't need the extra thermal paste as that cooler already comes with some


Like others said 5600X would also be a good option.


If you can wait 2 months Intel will release 12th gen which is expected be much better than 11th gen/5000 series

Just do not bother with k cpus, you arent even overclocking anyways judging by the board and cooler


Just get a 10400(f) or ryzen 5 5600x, 10600kf will get wiped by a 5600x and you dont even need to overclock a 5600x

Guys what's the point of 5600X or even 10600KF if OP has GTX 1650. If this PC is mostly for gaming I'd suggest 10400f at most, or even 10100F.

4 cores is barely enough to run most aaa titles these days, though if op isnt playing aaa titles then a 10100/10105 or 3100/3300x would work pretty well
