Poor cooling performance

I was finally getting around to over clocking my i7-3770k and found when I had it @4.4ghz core 1 reached 93c. That's seems awfully high to me given that I have a closed loop water block installed. I took everything back to stock and just loaded the cpu to 100% utilization with Prime and temps still seem a bit high coming in at 75c. From some of the forums I have seen the stock cooler run at temps like this. I did remove the cooler and reapply as5 and have the same results. The H80 is set up in a push pull configuration with air flow blowing out. The computer is in the basement and ambient room temperature is 67f (19c). It would appear that I have a bad unit.

System:
cpu -i7-3770k
mobo - Asus Maximus V gene
cooler - Corsair H80
case - Cooler master HAF - X

Any advise would be greatly appreciated.

Since you just default at lest shut it down for 1 to 2 hours so your PC cools down, also make sure to clean it from inside blow air or something i just believe you radiator still HOT. you have no problem don't worry about it after rest 1 hour if you still see your Temp 75 than we might consider your Cooling have an problem.

The case is completely free of dust, I am pretty anal about keeping it clean. The Radiator is not hot, it never seems to get hot when fully loading the cpu. I don't really feel a difference in air temp coming out of the exhaust at full load either, but that could just be me.

Shut-down the PC for 1 hour lits make sure your radiator cool down and than open it and test your temp. your cant judge now because it was heated up from OC.
