Iv been thinking about getting myself i7 4820k but I hear they run hot not sure what cooling method I should use. Is a fan plus heat sink ok (could add a pull fan) or should I go with a liquid cooling solution?

Hi
I have i7-3820 - stock clock
I run under 50 degree with Arctic Cooler i30 and under 1500 RPM
I can`t reach even 65 on 100% load

If you compare it with the new one i7-4820 they are almost the same specs :
Lithography 22 nm
Max TDP 130 W
TCASE 66.8°C

the old one i7-3820 is :
Lithography 32 nm
Max TDP 130 W
TCASE 66.8°C

If you buy good cooler ( for 200W ... ) you will run from 35 to 68 degre on load : this test is with Noctua NH-U14S

Infact this one 4820 is running cooler than other CPU`s in the review so you have room for OC.

I'm running 28C at idle and peaking around 50C at full load.

i7 4820k (stock speed)
Sabertooth x79
Coolermaster Hyper 212 EVO (running with one fan)
Arctic Silver 5
Coolermaster HAF X case with stock fans

I finally got my parts in and the computer together. Looks like my 4820k is running between 34 - 38 degrees with my 212 evo (one fan). when I set the Ez bios to optimal mode it jumps up to about 50 degrees. Im reading this from the monitor on the bios and the comp is at idle with no programs running. Im wondering if maybe I didn't get the heat sink installed just right iv read that if the heat rotates too much on install it can form air pockets in thermal paste.
