Hi guys,
I just installed my components in my case and try some little overclocking.

First I had problem with the loose back plate of the H100i so I did the rubber washer trick.

In the bios I change my overclocking profile to XMP.

I change my core to 4.3 GHZ and leaves my Vcore to auto that is 1.232V

My maximums temperatures are

Core 0 78*C
Core 1 74*C
Core 2 74*C
Core 3 66*C

I put my Rad fan on the h100i water temp group. they are both at full speed.

I am little bit disapointed about the h100i.

what do you think of that temps at that core ?????

Don't leave the VCore on auto, manually find a stable Overclock with a set VCore. Sometimes the motherboard can go a bit VCore happy.

perfect. so I know that is stable at 1.232V... so I can just put that to 1.200V and re-try it ?

and for the CPU Core Voltage I have 4 categories:
Auto
Manual Mode
Offset Mode
Adaptive Mode

which one is good ?

and what do you think of my temps ?
do you find it too high ?

Try 1.150V and start testing for crashes. I can do 4.2Ghz on 1.050V with my Ivy Bridge 3770K, so maybe even see if you can get 4.0Ghz+ with stock before trying to OC it with more VCore than you need.

Manual Mode.

Your temps are a little high but I've heard Haswell runs hotter than Ivy Bridge.. But those temps are safe, you won't reach them in everyday use.

just tried it 4.3ghz with manual 1.200V and max temp was 74*C... pretty happy.. I will try different voltage and see what is stable...when I will find the stable Voltage.. I will start to increase my core to 4.4ghz...

do I need to do something with cpu cache voltage ? or I leave it to auto ?

Disable the CPU Cache Voltage if possible, or put it to what your VCore is set to, the cache allows it to raise the voltage over the set VCore, if I'm not mistaken.
