Hi, I'm sorry to say but you missed two very important points. 1) You do not show the results of the cleaning job. After cleaning the CPU and GPU, they should be shiny LIKE A MIRROR, as in, like an actual mirror, literally.2) You applied about 100 times the amount of thermal paste that you need. You want to cover the CPU and GPU with AS LITTLE THERMAL PASTE AS POSSIBLE. Again, literally, just enough to cover the surface of the chips with a very thin film and nothing more. In other words, there should be no more shiny mirror surface visible anywhere; if you can achieve that with a thinner layer of paste than you put on, you put on too much.
