Yea that is very hot at 1.2v. You might want to check that the cooler is mounted correctly. You probably should take it off and reapply the thermal paste and reattach. The Ivy Bridge chips do run much hotter than the 2600/2700K, especially when overclocked but that seems somewhat excessive. What is it running at idle?
