I just overhauled the parts and now I can see the old heat solvent spreader over CPU... I wish I could post photos here so that u can easily understand the scenario... Now I am getting 60+ temp on normal working after cleaning the fan.... The problem is I don't have the heat paste and I am afraid about the cost and quality of new paste.. Should I leave it as before??? I really want to know how bad is my situation... But I can't post photos here..

You need to apply new paste. I see it's cpu and gpu chip. Clean both chips, clean heatsink, use line method, - add paste the longer edge of center of chips. Don't spread it with credit card, just let the heatsink do the job. I like arctic mx-4 paste, before i use arctic silver, but have bad results with it.
