    this is not the cpu temprature which you shows here. that is the system utilization. and if you complaining about high utilization graph without any processing then it must be some background process working. in windows 8, schedule error checking always ON. which is running while idel mode.
    for cpu temp, you need to installed some app for this. I recomed piriform speccy sysetm info app.

    I know this, the photo mean is, the CPU clock always is maximum and system utilization just is on a core.
    I can see the CPU temp By "AIDA64 Extreme", it is always more than 60oC!
    I asked this question because the body of the laptop is always hot, and fans work with maximum speed!

    If you figure out what is causing the mass amount of CPU usage and you fix it. It very well may fix your over heating issue. What I assume you are looking for.
    In that case look under your process/service tabs in task manager, you can get a better idea as to what is running.

    In the processes tab "System" and "System interrupts" are the most CPU.
    I think the problem is the "System" :

    ok, have you tried booting into safe mode to see if you still have the High CPU usage?
    If you don't know how you can try going to the link below and following 1 these steps

    In the safe mode CPU clock is minimum, but temp and fan speed is high!

    All that is showing is what is being used in % from your CPU not temperature. When it says speed ( what you have highlighted in red) is not fan speed. That is showing clock speed.
    I would deal with the amount of CPU usage your system is using first.
    Find out what services are chewing up that CPU and try fixing that.
    You can try doing a system repair on it. May help solve the issue.

    I know that, my laptop CPU minimum clock is 2.4 and maximum is 3.4
    In normal mode clock must be on 2.4
