We present an extensive Markov chain Monte Carlo study of the finite-size scaling behavior of the Fortuin-Kasteleyn Ising model on five-dimensional hypercubic lattices with periodic boundary conditions. We observe that physical quantities, which include the contribution of the largest cluster, exhibit complete graph asymptotics. However, for quantities where the contribution of the largest cluster is removed, we observe that the scaling behavior is mainly controlled by the Gaussian fixed point. Our results therefore suggest that both scaling predictions, i.e., the complete graph and the Gaussian fixed point asymptotics, are needed to provide a complete description for the five-dimensional finite-size scaling behavior on the torus.
