from completed build GGPC - The Hero - Adventure begins!
The i5-6400 is great little performer, and future upgrade savvy as it hits the recommended specs for a VR ready system! (you'll need to upgrade the gpu to GTX970)

from completed build Cherub a.k.a. I didn't know what color scheme to choose so I chose them all
With light work with Adobe Illustrator and InDesign, as well as lots of gaming, I couldn't ask for a CPU any more powerful. It does its job just fine.

from completed build Purple K
When it came to the cpu I decided on the i5-6400 to better fit my budget - AMD has not won me back yet. There was no reason for a 6600k and the differences in the 6500/6400 are so negligible that it wasn't worth the $50 additional cost at the time. I could have gone with an i3 and been fine, but having four logical cores allowed my wife to benefit better from the photo editing software I installed on the computer.

from completed build Feels like the 1st time...cuz it is!
I know I could have gone last gen but I wanted to be able to upgrade soon, so I might as well get something for a 1151 mobo. It's fine for my purposes as I'm notoverclocking, running 2 GPU's or anything crazy.

from completed build Icebreaker - Budget/Mid ITX Build!
While my original plan was to pick up the extremely popular and potent 6500/1060 combo, I bought most of my parts around Black Friday, and because of stock, found a much better deal on the Core i5 6400. While it may not have quite as good of a bang for your buck option as its older sibling, the little brother of the 6500 is still a very capable quad core locked CPU, with solid clock speeds, and no hints of bottlenecking with the likes of the GTX 1060 or RX480.

from completed build $1000 Skylake Gaming Rig/LOL I can run XCOM 2 on max somehow
For my gaming needs it runs great, low TDP, low core temperatures, and hasn't given me any issues so far. Not as powerful or as overclockable as it's -K brethren but certainly gets the job done in cool fashion. Bang for buck I give it 4 stars since it's a great little CPU, but loses a star since Intel have been keeping overclockers from unlocking the potential of the chip.
