As stated in the question, my MacBook Pro has been doing this since January of 2013. My MacBook Pro has also been heating up after about 2 to 3 hours of use, Even after having nothing but Finder open. Putting it on marble counter is the only way I have found to cool it down. What is happening? I have 10.6.8 Snow Leopard ( I have tried upgrading to Mavericks, but then I downgraded because it didn't fix the issue ).

 

The following is the iFixit specifications for this MacBook Pro:
