    Did anyone try playing games like Call of Duty or Starcraft II on iMac 5K Retina? How does the GPU function? Does it go above 100C? Is the cooling good enough for gaming? I want to know anything related to gaming on this iMac. Thank you!

    I use mine for gaming, mostly with bootcamp/Windows.

    It works very well, and I don't find it lacking at all. That said, I'm not playing the most graphically-intensive games at full settings. That would likely tax MOST GPUs out there anyway.

    There will always be a better computer than the one I have, and if I was solely into gaming, I could probably find a better experience for similar $ on the PC side, especially if I built it myself.

    However, the advantages of having the riMac greatly outweigh this for me, and I seriously enjoy gaming on it.
