    I'm right at 5yrs i think since i built my current box. i5-3570k has been sitting at 4.6ghz under water since without issues. my previous q6600 had bad issues and by the time i got rid of it i was under 2.9GHz from its original 3.6GHz OC just to keep it halfway stable.

    I know you said sandy/ivy but up until a few months ago I ran a haswell I7 5930k@4.5ghz 1.2875v with air cooling (212 evo) with zero issues of degradation. Worked like the first day I fired up right until I sold it.
