Well.. theoretically, you could. There is one thing and it is called creationism.
I really do not mean to sound rude or offensive. The point is, many things are possible.
It would be no problem to have bigger caches, higher clocks, latger SSDs and stuff that
could make the switch to new technology coming along with 50% more performance.
There are already existing chips that are planned to be released released in 2 - 4 years.
Of course every new tech need testing and i am not talking about that it will rain superchips
Another thing is that, theoretically it would be no problem to make a standard for coolers.
This means that like every board has an (m)ATX format, the holes could be placed always
on the same place.
This would reduce pollution

in this century, if we want to save what is left of this planet.
Look how many complete computers are sold here
"Worldwide PC shipments totaled 89 million units in the first quarter of 2012" only in one quarter!
Now imagine at least half of the cooling systems could be re-used.
How much energy and materials would this be?
Again, this is no warpost personal against you.. its just some kind of "political" exchange.
The counter argument could be that we are recycling stuff and this make things good again, but no.
Even recycling takes a large amount of energy and not 100% can be recycled. A part is just burned
in the atmosphere.
Now me for my part, is accepting to stayy on the 2500K for some generations because the technological
advance is eye-washing in order to maximise profit.
This is only my opinion and you are free to have yours.. sry i must go rapair a PC of on old lady now, otherways this
post woukd be way longer with more links.. i´d like to edit it and proove my arguments with more information.
