Should I go for a Sandy Bridge- or Ivy Bridge-based Core i7 processor?

So I am building my first PC, and I was planning on going for the i7 2600k, but with the new ivy bridge, a lot of my friends who have already built their PCs had advised me to go for the i7 3770k. I understand Ivy Bridge is updated and supposed to be better, yet I am also aware of the heat problems, especially when OCing (I don't plan on OCing so far, probably no higher than 4.0). So, if I have an aftermarket HSF, the Noctua NH-D14 specifically, will I still be experiencing heat problems? Should I just go for the Sandy Bridge?
