Nothing wrong with Ivy Bridge

unless you do extreme overclock.

Look like Intel changed the thermal interface from solid solder to a grease type (cheaper). The new grease is less efficient, so when you over clock the die get hotter than before. Some people remove the heat spread and apply a new grease and the die got much cooler.

I wouldn't worry about it unless you plan to overclock.

Change to Sandy Bridge which means that you don't have the new graphic HD4000. Too much of a trade-off.
