It looks like you applies too much thermal compound. Too much compound can hinder the ability for the head sink to dissipate the heat from the CPU. A rule of thumb is to use about a small grain of rice on the die. Also I think the component you pointed to is the integrated intel GPU, but I could be wrong.

I agree with @deadworlds. Too much thermal compound will actually restrict proper heat transfer. Wipe away all the old compound you applied and then do it over again but this time sparingly.
