Prepare to be amazed with the 8th generation Intel Core desktop processor family. The 8th generation Intel Core i5-8600K comes with six processing cores and six threads. That's two additional cores versus the previous generation for more processing power. With this unlocked processor you have the opportunity to tweak the platform performance for an even better PC experience. This Intel Core processor redefines mainstream desktop PC performance with features such as 9 MB cache and up to 4.3 GHz maximum frequency. The i5-8600K is VR Ready for the utmost virtual reality experience. Immerse yourself in your favourite media content while the Intel UHD graphics 630 provides you with a much richer visual experience. Be sure to pair your 8th generation desktop processor with a motherboard based on the Intel 300 series chipset. Experience this system acceleration when paired with Intel Optane Memory and a 2.5 Inch HDD. Supports two-channel DDR4 memory technology, which allows your system to have up to 64 GB of memory and up to 2666 MT/s memory transfer speeds. Mounting instructions from the manufacturer: First, a lever must be opened on the CPU socket of the mainboard. This locks the CPU if it is inserted correctly. Then the processor must be used carefully and without pressure. Simply press the CPU with the pins over the CPU socket and "drop" the CPU. The CPU can only be mounted in one direction. To ensure this, a corner of the pins on the CPU was marked with a "triangle". This tag is also on the CPU, so these two tags must be on top of each other. The manufacturer likes to repeat it before the CPU gets damaged: No force when installing the CPU. If the pins are bent, the correct functioning of the CPU is no longer guaranteed. The CPU must be able to push itself into the socket without pressure. If the pins are no longer visible on the mainboard from the outside, the lever of the CPU socket can be closed again.

Saying that, I should've waited a few months for the Ryzen 2700x. Comparable performance, no faffing with overclocking, cheaper components, a motherboard and ecosystem that will last more than one generation, stronger security, no need for water cooling. That being said, I am the opposite of disappointed!
I found installing the processor a cinch, especially after watching a couple of demonstration videos on YouTube first.
The processor has a couple of notches in it which align to the processor slot on the motherboard perfectly. Just make sure you touch a radiator or some such to discharge any static before you handle it!
Lift the arm on the motherboard to raise the processor socket assembly, drop the processor in, and then bring the arm back down. A little plastic cover pops off as the assembky clicks into place over the processor.
The performance of this processor is great and more than adequate for gaming when paired with a decent graphics card. I installed a mini GTX 1050Ti and have found the set up for more than ample for most gaming needs. You can expect to play most games at medium to high settings depending on the demand of the game engine.
Overall very, very happy with this purchase and have found its performance excellent so far.
Please Note: This is for the processor ONLY, there is no stock cooler bundled with it. I bought a Coolermaster CPU cooler for about £30 which is virtually silent.
