I think most of the components will work together but with the cooler I am a tad unsure, in the compatibility it says it supports AM3 but not AM3+ though I'm not sure if this would be the same as with Intel's LGA2011 and 2011v3, where a cooler that supports 2011 would also support the v3.

That is what I know, hope it helps a bit! :)

The AM3 and AM3+ sockets aren't physically different in terms of form factor. In other words, the cooler will fit fine. The difference in the two sockets is the number of pins, the AM3+ socket has more pins in it, but the processor size is the same, and the heatsink mount is the same.

Unless the H100i is woefully underpowered, it should adequately cool that processor. I don't have direct experience with the Corsair line, but it should work just fine.
