those temps do sound high for h100 and you got big case .
Maybe try removing block. making sure the backplate is tight at each corner than carefully remount block making sure you tighten each corner down small amount to keep it flat on chip .
I didn't leave the voltage on auto, I just took the original auto speed (1.160) and set that on manual with LLC on ultra. I always tighten things like that, ever since I was taught how to put on a car tyre by one of my mates, aha. I tightened down the corner which had the most resistance first, then the opposite side. Once they were down a bit, I tightened them all once over.

It is normal for the backplate to be a little loose before installing the pump/block unit. As Edkiefer posted, make sure to turn each screw a little at a time in a cross diagonal fashion.
It think you will need to pull the cooler off the chip and take pics of the TIM fingerprint on the IHS and the H100i block. We need to check if it is a nice even spread.
Edit: make sure the backplate is facing the right way, those two little cutouts in the top of your picture need to go in the right place on the back of your mobo to fit right.
I just flipped the rad around, so the tubing wasn't going over the memory, and while doing so I noticed the TIM fingerprint was like this ( http://i.imgur.com/hqTPWJY.png
) I think that might be caused by the upper left corner having the most resistance to being on the block, it's like it wanted to get away, but since I flipped the rad, it seems to be a little less resistant, for the angle of the tubing.
At roughly 25 minutes in to a custom blend test, with the same settings ( 100 x 36 @ 1.160v ) I'm getting these temps ( http://i.imgur.com/P6rAS4E.png
) so nothing's really changed.Edited by Curleyyy - 5/13/13 at 3:01pm
