Default Hot Hot Hot

Does anyone elses Q6600 Run idle at 45-48 C I have a Zalman 9700NT and it barely keeps this thing cool. Ive installed it 3 seperate times, putting the thermal greese as a one horizontal line, thinking i was doing it wrong, im still getting the same temps. Am i going to have to water cool this thing? FYI its a GO stepping Q6600 and this is supposed to be cooler than the b3 version i don't even want to know what temps it would run at. this is rediculous because no matter what i do i can't get these temps to go down, any suggestions...

First of all, how cool do you expect to get it to?
