Went well. Was torn between the I-5 4690k and the I7 4790k. Ultimately, I had the extra cash so I went with the I7 and do not regret it! Runs cool and quiet and base temp hardly moves with the TPU overclock settings on the ASUS z97 board. Can't say enough about the GTX 970 either. I am playing farcry 4 and Metro last light on max setting with framerates over 100.
