High Load average no CPU utilization

I just brought up a new web server on fedora core. The load aver appears to grow to the size of the MaxClients which is 150. If I lower it then the load average lowers. 

When I run ps -aux | grep httpd, I have almost every httpd process in uninterruptible sleep. Are these persistent connections that just aren't being closed or is it something else? 

Never seen this before,
