you need to go under water or get a better air-flow case..
While I agree that Haswell can get pretty hot, I don't know that it is that much hotter than Ivy with similar cooling. I have an H100i so I can only compare my temps to other H100i owners, but I am very close to Ivy owners at idle and load with a 4.7 GHz OC. Around 31C at idle and high 50s low 60s while gaming/benchmarking. I don't consider those to be hideous temps by any means. I am very conscientious of temps and control all of my case (and even H100i) fans using Asus' thermal radar software.
As the die shrinks and Intel focuses their attention more on mobile products we will undoubtedly see only higher temps in the future. Water cooling will likely become the norm and not an option, and GPUs will likely follow suit. I purposely went away from laptops for performance because of this, and that is why I decided to build my first desktop.
