Spectre inside!

Spectre = Intel, AMD, ARM, etc.

Meltdown = Intel exclusive.
Still rocking the 2500K. Hopefully it'll still keep things ticking over until Intel sort out the vulnerabilities and also RAM prices come down, then I'll go for an upgrade. The 2500K is still pretty decent (running OC'd with a 1070 and 20GB DDR3).

Quite good, but still have to buy 370 board and the 8500 will be soon as well as Zen +. The price for this has varied from over £200 dwn to this though, so decent gaming chip.
B360, H370 and H310 should be releasing imminently.

Still running a 3770 at stock with 16GB DDR3 and still completes everything i chuck at it with ease and my gaming isn't graphic intensive, WoW and Path of Exile so my old and trusyt 770 gtx still doesnt need an upgrade. Looking at benchmarks though that i5 is a lovely CPU.
Yes, its o.k. at £160 when they bring out the cheaper boards.

Same, but with rx480. Still run all games on max quality. 1080 of course, but that's totally sufficient for me. Will probably upgrade next year, along with TV.
Good price for the chip though op.
Note.
Tho this chip is a fantastic gaming cpu, (11782 cpu marks locked across the board)
the ryzen 1600 is actually a more powerful cpu over all (13079 cpu marks av. o/clock,likely including majority stock coolers and early chips that wont hit 4.0)
and a vastly better productivity cpu.(even at 3.8)
As DX 12 comes into play more (and the improved ryzen cpu's come out with better cache latency and clock speeds)
I doubt the i5 8400 will end up a better purchase over all.
But its still only £160,so if its mostly a gaming rig wait for a cheaper board and its gonna be fine.
I also have doubts about the i5 8500 (being also a 65 watt max cpu) performing much better than the 8400 on a cheap motherboard,as games start to need all that processing power, and obviously intel holding back the cheaper chipsets is fueling those doubts.
(I cant see a 65 watt locked 6 core/thread chip at 3ghz beating an unlocked 12 thread chip at 4.3 ghz)
The i5 7600 is a 3.5-4.1 gig, 65 watt processor so despite review opinions I would be surprised if intel can increase that to 6 cores at 65 watts and maintain clockspeed.
We shall see, I guess.
Caveat emptor!
