WLC - Client wont connect to closest AP


I have a WLC 5508 and 4408 servicing 100 APs. the problem is client wont connect to the closest AP! this problem leads to creating over association situation for one AP. 

I have tried disabling the slow data rate. I tried the Client Load Balancing  and facing even more problems!  I tried Maximum Allowed Clients Per AP Radio  and set it up to 25 but I was still able to see even 55 client connected to the AP while 2 meter away there was another freaking AP which servicing 5 people! 

I have seen this problem with CCX capable client too although most of my clients are Samsung laptop (never buy their laptops) and not CCX capable 

can any one tell me how can I tell or force a client to connect to the closest AP? 


I am already thankful for your comments
