That H100i will keep it cool enough, as long as you don't use to much voltage (1.5v or more) you'll be fine.

I have been able to pretty much run all my Phenom II's @ 4.0Ghz.I have never had to up any voltages. All have been done strictly using the multiplyer and have been 100% stable.Temps have never been an issue this way.

I find that 4.0Ghz is the sweet spot with these chips.Any gains over that is really negligible.

Dont forget to always do your O/C only from the BIOS!
