so i think im going 2500K for this board as its about $40 cheaper than a 3570K and can easily hit 4ghz as well. Xmas is more for my kids so i think this is a wise move.
If I had that board I would use it with my 2500k. 4.2ghz is easy peasy with out changing anything but the multiplier. The worst max overclock I have heard of is 4.3ghz which is still pretty good. Its a great cpu. I think it is a good choice.

I have been waiting for your follow up too.
