The airflow is alright even though there's just one fan at the back sucking air out.

Well, no. It should spread as soon as you power on.

Now, perhaps you didn't need thermal paste then. In order to help the cooling effect, it's the fan you need. 1-2 in the back taking out air, and 1-2 in the front for taking in cool air.

Reapplying thermal paste doesn't necessarily it will cool down your GPU.
