Haswell has a reputation for running hotter than all the chips that came before it. It is due to the amount of stuff integrated into the chip. You might want to go with water cooling for your rig.

Guess I'll have to watercool if I want to push it higher. But for now it's running stable, I've lowered the vCore to 1.18v
