yep I have similar results with mine I love it
I have this processor in my desktop. Playing Witcher 3:Wild Hunt, it runs very well. I SLI nvidia GeForce 760 GTX and it keeps up with my partner's i7-4770 and 970 GTX quite well. If I stream I can get close to maximum capacity on my CPU, but it's performance never staggers. To those wonder if it's worth getting the K version...only if you ever plan to overclock. Otherwise, this is your guy. Pretty grand for gaming.
