I’m thinking of getting a 9th gen intel core i5-9400f. I would like to know that max ram speed this core would allow. I know the i5-9600k will max at 3200 MHz. But I was wondering if the 9400f is the same or lower?

Here is a link to the Intel page for that cpu:
https://ark.intel.com/content/www/us/en/ark/products/190883/intel-core-i5-9400f-processor-9m-cache-up-to-4-10-ghz.html

Note that the official max ram speed for that cpu is DDR4 2666... however, if you have a 'Z' series motherboard, it will allow you to 'overclock' the ram to a faster kit (even though the cpu itself is locked), so it depends on the motherboard you use. If you use anything other than a Z series board (e.g. a 'H' or 'B' chipset motherboard) then there's no point going for faster than 2666 ram (a faster kit would work, but would be restricted to the slower speed).
