Overclocked Ivy Bridge chips run much hotter than Sandy Bridge


[excerpt quote="
However, anyone who has overclocked a Sandy Bridge processor 
successfully may be in for a shock when they pick up an Ivy Bridge part. 
It has been discovered through testing that Ivy Bridge runs 
significantly hotter when overclocked. By significantly, I mean as much 
as 20 degrees Celsius more at the same clock speed.

The Tech Report did a real-world test where they pitted a Sandy Bridge 
Core i7-2600K against an Ivy Bridge Core i7-3770K. Both chips were 
pushed to 4.9GHz using air cooling and the results logged.

If over-clocking is your game, Sandy Bridge seems to be a better game board.
