In game i5 3570 = i7 3770k

For most people a 3570k will be perfectly fine. The 3770K would give you 4 cores and 8 threads. The extra thread count is extremely useful for certain applications, but gaming isn't really in the sweet spot and you money won't be well spent. The $100 saving would be better off being spent on an SSD or a better GPU.

If however you are doubling your gaming rig as a test lab for work or school/uni where the thread count is actually useful (you should know if it will be) then you should by all means buy into hyperthreading.

Ivy and sandy are designed to handle the heat
I'm not sure why everyone complains when ivy runs 5c warmer. Unless its hitting 100C you're fine
