Are these temps normal for a laptop?

So I replaced my thermal paste today after experiencing lag about 10-20 minutes of playing Dead or Alive 5. The lag is now gone. after 1 hour of playing, the max temp of the GPU is around 75-84 degrees while gaming and for the CPU it's about 70-84 degrees. These are the idle temps exactly 3 minutes after closing the game: http://puu.sh/iAQQ2/2608430850.png

Is it normal? Is the thermal paste working?

The best you can do is install an app like speed fan. "During this test, the CPU of the IdeaPad Z580 reached a temperature of 98 degrees Celsius (208 degrees Fahrenheit) which did not cause a thermal shutdown but the CPU’s clock speed settled at 2.4 GHz during dual-core operation. During subsequent execution of Cinebench R11.5 and 3DMark06, Turbo Boost responded normally. In terms of gaming, we were able to reproduce this slowdown which limited the CPU to 2.4 GHz and 2.5 GHz operation while playing Battlefield 3."

Some laptops do get that hot. What laptop is it? Also You can put the fans on full speed before launching the app and leave it on full speed until you are done.

It's a Lenovo Ideapad Z580.

I know the max temp for the CPU (The i5) is 105 degrees. And for the GPU it's 93+ degrees.

So I don't know if I should be worried about them going 70-84 during a gaming session of DoA 5.
