I have an ACER Aspire V3-571G with an i7 and a GT 640m. Both of these are powerful components and under gaming load the temperatures of the CPU go as high as 90-95, and the GPU hovers around 85C. I have an ingame temperature monitor and for some more graphic intensive parts both sometimes hit 99C and begin to throttle it.

I just got this laptop a few months ago... Is ACER really that terrible at cooling their laptops, or is something I did wrong? I do not overclock but I game on it alot, which shouldn't be a problem since it's a GAMING laptop.

Yes, I allow it to have proper airflow, I usually have it on a desk when I game so that I can use a mouse.

No, I have not disassembled it and put it back together wrong. (did that with another acer laptop and broke some things)

Also, which thermal paste would be good for it if I were to take the laptop apart and re-apply some.
