Using a i5 2500k and i am looking to upgrade to either Haswell or Ivy-E, it will manly be for gaming. I would go straight for the 4770k but herd the temps are kind of crappy and i am too scared to delide the CPU.

No. The performance increase is marginal at best. Worst case scenario, you'll get a haswell chip that cant even hit 4.5ghz and you'll downgrade.

I know the Haswell and Ivy-E will be so much better for games like BF4@ 64 players or games like Total War. But i don't know if i should wait for next years new CPU's.
