A cool pad, in my case, can only reduce from 5 to 8 degrees C, if you could get similar result, your machine still runs at over 80 degrees C, still too hot. dv6 laptops are hot, you can Google them.

I know about coolers...but I beleive that is not the solution...I am thinking to change the thermal paste of CPU...I want to add a point that Its been only six months and the laptop does not have dirt or dust on fan.

Be sure your laptop is on a flat surface - no table cloths or soft pad.
A cooling pad is not a bad idea. If that's not enough, then you may have to go change the Thermal paste on your cpu &b gpu. While you're at it, you might add a copper shim to both.
