Bounty: 50

Today I installed kubuntu 18.04 on my laptop, and I’m having some problems with it. One of the problems is the high temperature of two chips. When running the command sensors in the terminal I get the following output (at idle):

coretemp-isa-0000
Adapter: ISA adapter
Package id 0:  +45.0°C  (high = +100.0°C, crit = +100.0°C)
Core 0:        +44.0°C  (high = +100.0°C, crit = +100.0°C)
Core 1:        +44.0°C  (high = +100.0°C, crit = +100.0°C)
Core 2:        +45.0°C  (high = +100.0°C, crit = +100.0°C)
Core 3:        +44.0°C  (high = +100.0°C, crit = +100.0°C)

acpitz-virtual-0
Adapter: Virtual device
temp1:        +46.0°C  (crit = +120.0°C)

iwlwifi-virtual-0
Adapter: Virtual device
temp1:        +60.0°C  

pch_skylake-virtual-0
Adapter: Virtual device
temp1:        +60.0°C  

The last two devices have a 60.0°C temperature, and it seems the chips are located under the keyboard to the left because that region feels really hot and makes it annoying to type or to place my hands above the keyboard. Is it possible to bring these temperatures down?
I’m already using tlp, and thermald came preinstalled in the system.

EDIT: The laptop is a Gigabyte Sabre 17 with an i7-7700HQ processor. Here are its details using Speccy on my Windows 10 partition:
