Intel has released the 11th-generation processors for some time now, but not all people can pay for those processors, which makes the older processors pretty good for budget users. One of such processors is the Intel Core i5-9400F that belongs to the 9th generation of Intel Core-series processors. It is a hexa-core processor, and unlike the 10400F, it does not come with Hyper-Threading, which is why it has six threads. Since it is a non-K variant, it can not be overclocked, which means that you donâ€™t need to spend a lot on the Z-series motherboard, although you can buy a Z-series motherboard for other high-end features or future upgrades. The mainstream chipsets for 9th-generation processors are H310, B360/365, H370, Z370, and Z390. The H310 and B365 are budget chipsets that come with essential features and do not support overclocking. In contrast, Z-series chipsets are usually aimed at enthusiasts who are willing to maximize the potential of their processors. In this article, we will have a look at some of the best motherboards that you can couple with Intel Core i5-9400F.
