Problems with overheating

Greeting, I am currently using a 4y old asus notebook, I have bought a new SSD very recently and I installed it yesterday along with a clean install of win7. Only thing that bothers me is that the machine is overheating quite alot while only browsing the internet with no programs running at all. All the relevant info is on the pic below:

I should note that I am even using a cooling pad so that certainly knocks couple of degrees down for sure so it might be even worse without it. My sister has notebook aswell and her temp is about 40 degrees celsius while browsing internet and with no cooling pad.

Hi,
Laptops generally run hotter mostly because of poor cooling systems 87c is way higher shown by realtemp.
40c wouldn't be terrible for a laptop as a system temperature which realtemp would show.

I'd usually start by making sure the intake and exhaust vents were clear and not clogged up with dust... build up
A last resort I would replace the thermal paste on the cpu.

How likely it is that the cause could be a failing battery? Since I removed it its at 60 degrees so far.

Battery may not having any reason to cause heat.

If you touch the part (on the keyboard) where the "intake and exhaust vents" location is, it is hot/warm.
But the other location is not hot/warm at all.

There are certain things you need to take into consideration on the heat.
If you place some items near to the " intake and exhaust vents", it is not advisable as what TrashZone mentioned.
Also, the table should not made with heat related item, such as metal, clothing, bed, etc; that retain heat.
The area need to be opened, without any blockage, as release of the heat may be blocked.

You could check on other laptops physically, as regarding to heat.

Yeah I was wrong removing the battery barely helped, as soon as I run some programs or played a movie or something it jumped to 90+ celsius..

Hi,
Never heard of a battery causing high temps
I'd use resource monitor and the overview section to see what is really going on
If you see high usage of svchost.exe going on let us know it has been the biggest cause of high temps and also cpu usage.
Which it did show 14% load and 2500MHz
Are you using a high performance power plan ?
If so adjust the minimum cpu to 5% the same as a balanced power plan would use.

When was the last time that you removed all the dust and lint from inside the laptop case ? This is by far the most common cause of overheating in laptops

hmm maybe 1 or 2 years ago, I thought that this might be the problem aswell but I just cant see how a little bit of dust could cause a 30-40 C jump compared to normal (I guess the idle temp should be around 40-50 C?, mine is at 90 atm..)

A tiny amount of blockage in the wrong place can easily cause temperatures to rise dramatically. Compressed air is usually suggested as the best method to clear things but should be used carefully so as not to overstress any fan bearings by causing them to spin excessive. I tend to use a soft brush and a hand blower, (used by photographers) as this give better control. If possible it's best to get the air stream to such a position so as to blow in the reverse direction to normal to clear all the small areas, but again be careful with fans especially as they will be likely to run in reverse

I don't know if dust/crud is your problem but a Nigel suggested; it's the first thing to check. Because of the confined space inside a laptop it doesn't take much dust/crud to cause a problem. I would also suggest making sure the fan rotates as it should.

The computer in My System Specs get the filters and fans ect. cleaned several time a year. It can't hurt.
