Help!! Temps increased after changing OEM's thermal paste!

I was hoping someone could help me with some basic troubleshooting. My laptop (MSI GL65 Leopard) used to thermal throttle. I chose to get liquid metal after researching all of the advice about how big of a difference thermal grizzly liquid metal can make. My GPU temperature dropped from 75°C to 50°C after the operation was performed successfully. My CPU temps, on the other hand, have jumped to 96°C, up from 90°C earlier. I redone everything and reapplied LM, but the results remained the same.

I'm not sure what the cause is, but I'm guessing it's something to do with the VRAM chips or something else. Is there anyone who knows what that gooey stuff is? So I can reapply it to the VRAM and MOSFET chips?

 

Benchmark Legends:

With L.M = Results after i applied Liquid metal

O.G. = Stock OEM benchmark, before i did anything

Most likely just a dry bulk bought thermal paste.
If you didn't reapply those as well, there's a possibility that how gunky & messy they are, they either prevent your CPU having a good contact with sink, or have air bubbles in them, which preventing them having good contact with sink as well.

I think usually thermal pads is used, unless clearance is that big of an issue or somethin.

Thanks alot for your help. I hv just ordered K5-pro thermal paste. Hoping it will solve the issue.😊
