When you overclock it is when you'll ultimately find out if it is an "above" or "below average" CPU. The voltage that you will need to hit specific clocks will dictate how high you can go, along with the your cooler's potential. The higher the voltage the higher the temps, but I am sure you already know that. The amount of voltage needed to stabilize certain clock speeds will vary quite a bit from chip to chip though. My 4670K is running at 4.6 GHz @ 1.215V, but I have seen some report needing up to 1.350V for that same overclock. Try to keep it under 90C while stress testing, and don't raise the voltage above 1.300V with that cooler. For a "modest" overclock the H60 should be fine. Just make sure the backplate is installed like in the photo (with the little grooves facing upwards) and that the water block is tightened evenly against the CPU. I have read many stories about high temps because of user error while installing the cooler.
With the H100i my CPU will idle around 30C and will get up to around 55C while gaming and benchmarking. Stress testing is another story and it depends on what program and settings you use. Prime, OCCT, and Aida64 will get it into the high 70s, but Linpack benhmark can get it into the 90's depending on the problem size entered.
