I7 and Tunic tower extreme

I just got a i7 930, and I'm using the tunic tower 120 Extreme to cool it. At the moment I'm running the chip at stock speeds (2.8ghz) and Its idling at 37c. I can't even overclock it to 3.3ghz + with out it idling at around 40 plus C. Is there a problem here? And should I be able to overclock this chip to 4.0ghz with this cooler? I did use this cooler to cool my AMD 920 to 3.7ghz with no problem. For the i7 I used the line method. Should I redo it and use the spread method?

Thanks, Xion
