Newegg's Shell Shocker daily deals program still has a couple of ways for you to save. You can get the 10th-generation Intel Core i5-10400 computer processor on sale through Newegg (opens in new tab) for $159.99 when you use code 93XSD85 during checkout. This is $15 off the Cyber Monday price we've seen at other retailers like Amazon (opens in new tab) and $70 off its highest price this year. This is the lowest price we have seen in more than six months.

Use the code 93XSD85 during checkout. The Comet Lake processor is compatible with the LGA 1200 CPU socket type. It has a 50% upgrade in performance over previous generations, too.

There are a ton of AMD and Intel processors out there for you to choose from, and the prices vary from budget-level to crazy expensive. We've even seen some great deals on processors during Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Some of those deals, like this AMD Ryzen 9 5950X CPU, are still on sale. But even on sale, that processor is more than three times the price of this one. If money matters, and you need a new processor, then this is a deal for you.

The Intel Core i5-10400 CPU is compatible with the LGA 1200 CPU socket type and Intel 500 Series chipset based motherboards. It's a Comet Lake 14nm 6-core 65W processor and has Intel UHD Graphics 630 integrated graphics. It's also capable of Turbo Boosts up to 4.30GHz, which might be much faster than what you're already using. If you have a processor from an older generation, the 10th-gen from Intel improves on the established formula with a performance that's 50% better.

Remember that the Shell Shocker program is Newegg's daily deals section, which means this price is only good through the end of the day or whenever that code expires (which could be earlier).
