bubbler9797, the YLOD usually requires a lot more than just to replace the thermal paste. The YLOD is generated by cracked solder connections on the CPU/GPU. Follow this guide here for a better result. Even this fix should be considered a temporary fix. A reflow would be a more permanent fix. Hope this helps, good luck.
