Ivy bridge is brutal for heat. Unfortunately Intel didn't solder the IHS on like they have in the past. They decided to thermal paste and glue it on, and the smaller die is causing higher temps. My 3570k under full load is at about 55 degrees celcius at stock speeds. It goes up to about 60 degrees at 4.2GHz and ~ 1.2 volts. at 4.5GHz and 1.3 volts it spikes to 73 degrees celcius which I'm not comfortable with. I leave it at 4.2 most of the time because I don't want it running that hot. I'm running the Cooler Master EVO 212 in a push/pull configuration btw.
