As long as you have a decent motherboard (Something to handle the extra power) and a good cooling setup it won't be too difficult. A larger Zalman air cooler or (better, though more expensive by a bit) a closed water loop will help keep temperatures down as you bump the voltage up. Newegg has a number of water coolers for under $100 and these will make your chip much happier in the long run. :)

As a note, a lot of 3570k chips can hit right around 4.5 without voltage changes.
