Corsair H80i / H100i liquid coolers

Just ordered a Corsair H100i cooler I'll be using with an i5 3570k processor. Has anyone here tried this combo yet? I'm just curious what kind of speed I can expect to hit without compromising system stability. It will be used almost exclusively for gaming.

With the H60 I got it too 4.2 Ghz, scared to go farther since I'm new to overclocking

I have an H100i and 3570k and it is awesome! I'm using the stock fans, and I get about 30C Idle when @ 4.5GHz, fans set to the "balanced" preset. In game (intensive game like bf3, skyrim w/mods) it never gets above 65C. With the "quiet" preset it's about 35C Idle, 75C gaming. Hope this helps :D
