Don't worry about it anyway. The omen is not capable of sustaining a reasonable overclock at least in stock configuration. You need to modify it heavily in either case HP will be quick to void your warranty.
I am currently in the process of going through consumer affairs for false advertising with the unit I bought.
If you want to over clock a machine, build your own. HP offer no support and flat out lie about overclocking capabilities of the omen units.

They added proper overclocking now but for the new Omen as seen here. http://www8.hp.com/us/en/campaigns/omendesktop/overview.html?jumpid=in_r11260_us/en/psg/gaming_pcs_h...
Scroll down some and you will see the screen for overclocking. They even have built in safe guards in place as well which is what I had suggested all along if they was so worried about offering REAL overclocking.
People with older machines like us get stuck with turds that don't allow proper overclocking from with in the bios.
I doubt it will work but you can try downloading the Omen command center which I believe allows overclocking.

They could release a bios for omen X which would support Comand Center thats not s big deal for them , but the deliberately dont want to , all drivers , bios and tools are outdated and obsolite on the support page for Desktop X900 a shame for hp and more of OMEN TEAM.
Totally agree with ya. The Omen gaming division is a joke. Its not run by real gamers that are passionate about the product at all.

Wow so I gave them the idea for the side panel window for the Omen and they didn't even credit me for it lmao. I was the first to put a side panel window on the omen and they offer me nothing. How about making it so those with the old Omen can overclock you insincere scumbags.
IMO, they should send me one of the new cases for free and allow us to overclock the old models..
