Yes you should see better temps, Manufactures are usually horriable at thermal paste. Just get some arctic clean (follow their instructions) then put a dot of paste on the heatspreader or chip(MX4, Nocuta H1, OCZ freeze), dont spread the paste just allow the heatsink to do it.

You might want to do some test applications (wastes a bit of paste and time cleaning back up but it helps judge the amount)

I tore my HP laptop apart this past summer to reapply the thermal paste and clean out the heatsink. Doing so was quite the process, but I'd say the noise levels have dropped noticeably, which was the main problem.

Have you tried searching for a guide for disassembling your Asus?
