Well, the fact you lost 20C by re-applying shows one of a few things.
1: You still have either too much or too little paste.
2: You are not getting a good tight contact between the CPU IHS and heatsink.
3: (Unlikely) Your motherboard is reading temps wrong.
4: The pump is not circulating water properly.
What are you using to obtain these temps? If using speedfan, try out HWMonitor at cpuid.com, don't get the "pro" version.
