I am worried about all the talk of IB running to hot as I was planning on buying an i5-3570k and wanted to overclock to around 4.5ghz maybe a little lower. I have an Antec KUHLER H2O 920 water cooler, and was wandering if I should be fine with that overclock or should I go with maybe an i5-2500k or 2550k? Thanks.

I would like to know this too ^.^

I would be using the Thermax Spire Exlipse II on mine!

It would be prudent to suggest you wait for the community or sites to report actual numbers. However, since IB is a slight improvement over SB it wouldn't be a bad idea to go with the proven 2500k etc.
