Hi I got the Akasa venom for my CPU a while ago, but it doesn't seem to cool it properly I have the fan at the bottom blowing into the heatsink and the top one blowing out, but my temp is around 50 to 60 even when there's nothing happening, my CPU is i7 920 2.66 ghz not overclocked. My case is the NZXT phantom.

Not to question your intelligence but there is a transparent sticker on the hsf base that needs to be removed. Also check if it is attached to the tightly to the motherboard.
