Pros: -Runs very fast and stable at 4.6GHz

Cons: -A little bit hot, but its typical of an Ivy Bridge processor

-Currently running at 4.6GHz with a Corsair H80
-Was just playing BF3 about 5 minutes ago, and the processor is now idling at 31-32C(according to PC Meter)
-The hottest I've ever seen this processor run was about 68-74C and that was on accident playing a really intensive game with all of the fans turned down

When people talk about ivy bridge temps, they need to also think about the location they're in and the cooling setup they have. The highest you've ever seen was 74 degrees, but maybe you just live in a cool area?
Not to mention that we're in winter now so ambient temps are going to be low.
