I second this. I have read instances where the water block isn't sitting on the cpu correct due to the surrounding capacitors around the cpu socket. Also make sure to tighten in an crisscross pattern so the block will sit evenly.

What mobo do you have?

Mounting the H100 pump was an issue on 775 mobos due to the caps but I should imagine there would be enough room on new boards. I know on my x79, theres acres of space.

I'd suggest a mounting issue with the pump, Vcore or pump speed. Even with push or pull, those temps are a little high.

Well, i'd personally go and run prime95, it'll stress it to unrealistic levels which will allow you to get a good indictation of the max temp it will hit. Again setting your Vcore will probably help quite a bit as well
