Unboxing and Photography
The Core i5-11400F ships in a simple paperboard box with a small cutout to see the processor. The box contains the processor only, a cooler is not included.
The processor is based on the same Socket LGA1200 package as 10th Gen Comet Lake and will work on not just Intel 500-series chipset motherboards, but also older 400-series ones, with a BIOS update.
Intel's Socket LGA1200 uses the same mounting-hole layout as the older LGA115x configuration, giving you a huge choice in coolers. Just be sure it can handle a TDP of at least 125 W.
