GTX 960 Gaming Performance
Unfortunately I only have gaming performance data with the Core i5-4430 and FX-8320E processors using the GeForce GTX 960. This is obviously going to create a GPU bottleneck for the overclocked Core i3-6100, so we will have to re-test with a faster GPU once we have more time. For now here are two games which represent what we saw in at least half a dozen titles...
As you can see the overclocked Core i3-6100 delivers virtually the same performance using the GTX 960 as the non-overclocked configuration, as well as the Core i5-4430.
There was a slight performance advantage seen in Crysis 3, but with the GTX 960 limited to around 65fps on average the overclocked Core i3-6100 had nowhere to go.
