20 Year IT Pro Review
To start, I'm not going to hit you with all the spec data. Plenty of sites for that kind of measurement. I'm going to tell you, being a 20 year IT professional, this is a solid processor. I replaced a Xeon E3-1225 with this processor. Even coming from a Xeon for productivity and virtualization, this...

Intel Core i5-10400 Review
The Intel Core i5-10400 doesn't fit into any category as an outright winner, and even the recent price softness we have seen for some 10th Generation chips in Intel's stack won't be enough to elevate the chip beyond its station. The strong demand for, inflated prices of, and spotty availability of recent Ryzens keep the Core i5 viable at 3.5 stars here in early 2021

I just bought a new PC for my mom, but i realized too late that it doesn't have a wifi card. There was another PC i was looking at that is very similar, but instead of Intel i5 10400 it has Ryzen 5 3400G but this one \*would\* have the wifi card. For the use she's going to give it, i think she would benefit from using the ethernet cable instead of wifi.

Intel Core i5-10400 Gaming Performance Review - Back2Gaming
But again, for purely gaming purposes, the Core i5-10400 is capable enough. So to conclude, the Intel Core i5-10400 6-core CPU isn’t a show stealer in terms of performance, but at its price and availability, it makes for a compelling argument for people that want a fixed set for the next 4 years to play all the modern games they want without feeling the limitation in performance even with a high-end GPU.

Until the 10600K ACTUALLY becomes available. This is good enough for Gaming
Not the best value out there, but I think it's still a very solid buy if you want it ALMOST EXCLUSIVELY for gaming as I do. About the price, 182 I think it's O.K. Anything more than that it's unacceptable considering the competition. My current CPU is the i5 4670K so, as you can imagine, words canno...

Why Intel's i5-10400 Was Doomed from the Start
So since this thing is basically tied down by its memory speeds and those sort of budget in motherboards, the 10400 just doesn't really have a place to be recommended at all.

Better than expected
Purchased this CPU to get a new system up and running while I wait for the 10900k that I have on back-order. For a relatively inexpensive temporary solution, this isn't a bad processor. It's certainly better than I anticipated. Oh, and, yeah, that's an aquarium the computer is sitting in. It's going...
