Laptop Temperature Question

Hello All,
I have a Cyberpower gaming laptop that is almost 2 years old. It has a Quad Core i7 3630QM clocked at 2.4 GHz with turboboost to 3.4 GHz, a Pegatron A15 motherboard, and a GT 640m. I think I have a problem with my laptop overheating. Each piece of hardware runs at 55-60 degrees celsius idle, even after opening the backcover, cleaning/vacuuming it, and letting it sit open for 1 hour. Then when I play a game, for example TF2 (which plays at about 90 fps) The parts heat to about 87-95 degrees celsius. I don't know if it could be related, but when it heats up to around 90 my computer will randomly freeze and I have to power it off through the power button. (It could just be a bug of some sort in TF2) I personally think these temperatures sound very high, but I'm not sure. If these temperatures are too high how could I fix it? Oh and I do have my laptop elevated and I clean it regularly. I was thinking of adding some thermal paste to the processor and graphics card, as it has been 2 years running at fairly high temperatures and maybe that could fix it? Thank you for reading, and hopefully you might have some good advice!

Yes, it's very likely the thermal paste has worn off after 2 years of use, assuming you verified coolers are working properly the replacement of thermal paste should fix your overheating problems.
