why ivybridge runs so hot
this is why:
http://www.overclockers.com/ivy-bridge-temperatures

intel, in their infinite wisdom, decided to use thermal compound between the CPU die and heatspreader of ivybridge chips, instead of the fluxless solder used in sandy bridge chips. as the article mentioned, the two materials have dramatically different thermal conductivity, which explains why ivybridge runs significantly hotter overclocked than sandybridge.

or in other words, ivybridge was supposed to be the king of overclocking like sandybridge, but then it took an arrow to the knee.

Looks like I'm keeping my 5ghz 2600k for some time. No complaints.

Please note: Your existence, or lack there of, most likely does not affect my mood in any measurable way.

RE: why ivybridge runs so hot
I'm not overly concerned with overclocking.

I think my next chip will be an ivy bridge. My old Asus P6T Deluxe is getting flaky...

RE: why ivybridge runs so hot
Didn't see it mentioned but is there a "green" reason to go the route Intel did (IE: is the paste used less toxic to make/use than the solder) or as some have stated was it simply a cost move?

How are the mid tier Ivy's? Better then Mid tier SB for price (Rumored at least right?)

They're probably a little bit better but suffer from the same design flaw.
Well, it's a flaw if you're overclocking otherwise the "longevity" argument make sense.
