    Are you saying the temps are still too high ?

    Yes, they're pretty much the same as before I did the cleaning.

    Only the temperature in the graphics card seem to be lower after some gaming (about 14 Celsius less than before).

    According to the image in your first post and your system specs, it is an AMD FX-4100. Some info and tips here on AMD FX-4100 heat issues: AMD FX-4100 at 88┬░C. Occasional computer shutdown - TechSpot Forums

    Reseating cooler with new paste may be the way to go.

    I can use my tablet to post on here, so don't worry. But if I need to buy thermal paste, I won't be able to do anything until it arrives (could be days/weeks).

    I'm sure, your old paste is now dry and flaky and may not be transferring heat to the cooler efficiently.

    Yes, I recently replaced the thermo paste in my lap top.
    First I used the two step cleaning method with these.
    New Arctic Silver acn 60ml Arcticlean 1 2 Thermal Paste Remover Purifier | eBay

    Then I used this paste.
    Arctic Silver 5 AS5 3 5g CPU Thermal Compound Paste Grease Tube 3 5 Grams | eBay

    I removed the cooler from the CPU. Your mounting will vary, just watch what you do and go slow.

    Then use the material remover first to take the old paste off, from both the mating surface's.
    Meaning the bottom of the cooler and the top of the CPU.

    Next use the Surface purifier with a very clean lint free cloth.
    Clean both surface's very well, I did it twice until the cloth had not trace's of old paste on it.

    Now, its very important Not to touch either surface with anything except the New paste.
    Apply a very thin layer of the paste on the CPU surface, use an old credit card or something similar to spread it.

    You do not have to apply the paste to the bottom of the cooler.

    Reinstall the cooler and you are done.

    The new thermal paste has a 100 hour break in time on it.

    Ths is easier to do than it sound's. Like I said take your time and you will be OK.

    Wow, your tablet is very efficient. Two posts at one time... haha.. just kidding!
