So, for 'futureproof-ness', it would be wiser to go with Ivybridge. However, if I manage to use stock voltages and get a mild overclock, wouldn't that mean that temperatures would be around mid 60s to mid 70s? (I may have just rephrased what you just said, it's been a long day
) On a side note, Ivybridge can go up to around 80/85c before you should start worrying, right? Especially with a HSF, they should not be going over 76c -ish, am I right in thinking that?
