Intel Core i5 Processor i5-2400 3.10 GHz 6MB LGA1155 CPU (CPU ONLY)
From the Manufacturer
Part of Intel's family of 2nd generation Intel Core computer processors, the Intel Core i5-2400 Processor delivers speed and smooth performance --whether you're uploading and editing home videos or checking your e-mail. This quad-core processor runs at 3.10 GHz and uses the LGA1155 socket. It features a 6 MB L3 cache, Intel Turbo Boost Technology 2.0, and Virtualization Technology to improve speed and computing productivity. Built-in visual technologies, like Clear Video and InTru3D, support high-definition and Blu-ray playback.
Intel Core i5-2400 Processor
The Intel Core i5-2400 Processor has four cores running at 3.1 GHz.
Quad-Core Processor Running at 3.10 GHz for Fast Performance
The Intel Core i5-2400 has four processing cores running at 3.10 GHz. It features a 6 MB L3 shared cache that is dynamically allocated to each processor core, based on workload. This reduces latency and improves performance.
Additionally, the i5 comes with Advanced Vector Extensions, a set of instructions to improve software performance for intensive applications like audio processing, audio codecs, and image and video editing applications.
Turbo Boost for Extra Processor Speed
The Core i5-2400 features Intel Turbo Boost Technology 2.0, which delivers a burst of processor speed automatically when the workload demands additional performance. The technology dynamically increases the processor's frequency as needed by taking advantage of thermal and power headroom when operating below specified limits. The result is adaptive performance that's more intelligent and energy efficient.
Built-In Visuals Provide Rich, Steady Graphics
The built-in visuals of the Intel Core i5-2400 Processor deliver a seamless graphic experience when you're viewing and manipulating pictures and media on your PC. They also eliminate the need for a discrete graphics card, reducing power consumption and system cost.
Intel Quick Sync Video enables quick conversions of video files for portable media players or online sharing. Experience sharp images and rich color with Clear Video Technology, which provides visual quality and color fidelity enhancements for vivid high-definition and Blu-ray playback. Intel HD Graphics offers enhanced 3D performance for immersive mainstream and casual gaming without hesitations or interruptions.
The Intel Core i5 is also equipped with Intel InTru3D, which provides stereoscopic 3D Blu-ray playback in full 1080p resolution and premium audio via HDMI 1.4.
Intel Virtualization Technology
Intel Virtualization Technology allows multiple "virtual" environments to function on one hardware platform. It offers improved manageability, limiting downtime and maintaining productivity by isolating computing activities into separate partitions.
Optimized for Energy Efficiency
The Intel Core i5 is designed to optimize every watt of electricity, resulting in a more energy-efficient system that is cooler and cheaper to run. In a system with other energy-efficient components, the processor can meet Energy Star specifications.
What's in the Box
Intel Core i5-2400 processor, fan/heat-sink cooling solution, warranty booklet, and Intel Inside logo label.

It's an older gaming CPU that's still pretty capable for what I use it for.
It went into a $450 gaming PC

If you're in the market for a new CPU with a bit more oomph, this is definitely a good option for the price point. Especially if you have no need to overclock.
The processor fits the 1155 socket on any Sandy Bridge motherboard, and includes Intel HD2000/3000 graphics so you can avoid buying a separate graphics card. This full retail package includes a basic fan heatsink cooler which simply clips over the processor, keeping temperatures between 38 degrees and about 55 degrees in my two fan PC. The heatsink includes thermal coupling already applied, so all you need to do is click the heatsink into the motherboard and plug in the fan.
It has way exceeded expectations in performance. I'm seeing 8300 on GeekBench, putting this machine in the same league as previous generation i7 processors.
It is possible to slightly overclock this processor from 3.1 GHz to about 3.8 GHz, but if you want to do this, you will probably want the i5-2500K variant, which is fully unlocked and usable up to 5+ GHz with appropriate cooling.
I'm extremely happy with this purchase.
