Ivy bridge and later Intel CPUs need increased operating voltage (fortunately modern boards can adjust it dynamically) if you want good overclocks and it makes lots of extra heat. AFAIK Sandy bridge (2xxx series) was last generation that didn't need it, at least not that much.

Obviously doesn't hurt to use a separate cooler, but a better power supply is more important.
I agree 100%. Good quality PSU is one of the most important part.
