Default H50 Performance Issues

So i just bought a h50 today for my i7 920 and I'm experiencing temp problems still.
Coming from a AMD setup that at idle was 20 Degrees and max load 45 Degrees the heat these intel chips throw off amazes me.

Currently my setup is:
i7 920 D0 @ 4.0Ghz 1.25V
6Gb ram
H50 w/ 2 Scythe Kaze slipstream @1200 Rpm push pull config venting into case

I have reseated the h50 a couple of times trying different thermal paste applying methods (bead, line etc with the same results)

and my results are as follows 50 Idle and 95+ linpack

Any suggestions ?

i7 920 D0 @ 4ghz
Custum WC Loop
Asus P6X58D-E
6 Gb Corsair 1333
NZXT Phantom
