My laptop was overheating and I wanted to clean it and apply thermal paste. I applied the thermal paste and everything was good, my laptop was running with 70-80C in game. 1 months later, today my laptop started to overheat. It hits 90C and it causes FPS drops. Why is it happening?

The thermal paste I used is Arctic MX-4, I bought it from Amazon.

My laptop specs:
GTX 960M
i7-6700HQ
16 GB RAM
128 GB SSD
2 TB HDD
