if you used a different tim did you remove the paste that was pre-applied on the corsair block?
That will note cook a 3570k... e-e The chips are rated to 105C and I have ran my regularly at over 85C without issues.
OP, those temps are a bit high and I would suspect that you may have a bad seat with your H100. Under load with my clock speeds (and my chip runs a little bit hotter as well) I do 70C. When I had my 3570k, I would do about 50-55C load. What are your ambients, because if you have high ambients, that can cause your temps to be higher as well. Ambient temp is your room temp.
Also, as far as TIM goes, use a good pea sized glob in the dead center of the CPU (after cleaning the block and CPU properly with some rubbing alcohol). I generally do a glob about the size of a large pea. If you don't have enough TIM, your temps will be high.
