Omen 30L runs HOT
Just bought a 30l omen with and rtx 3080 and i9-10850k and temps stay steady at around 82c for gpu and 85-89c for CPU while gaming.
Debating on returning it.
Idled it runs 50-54c?
Seems to me from what I’ve seen online those temps are quite high.
Any suggestions to improve temps?

@Kronos-S90 , welcome to the forum.
The maximum temperature for the processor (CPU) is 100C and the maximum temperature for the video card (GPU) is 89C. The temps that you are experiencing are on the high side, but are not at the point of causing either to throttle. I have not seen the inside of your style of case. If there is space enough to install an additional "Intake Fan" it certainly would be helpful.

@Old_geekster, I'm having similar issues with an Omen 30L with the same specs as the OP, the model number I believe is GT13-0092 (purchased from amazon here: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B08KHD3Q5Z).
CPU idles around 50C, which seems reasonable. When utilization goes above ~10% however it spirals upwards towards 90C. It has liquid cooling, but I'm wondering what I can do to help keep the temps down.

If you still can return it easily I would. Those idle temps are absolutely too high. The load temps are also too high unless you are really hitting them with heavy heavy loads. The Gpu temps could be fixed with a more aggressive fan curve but the cpu temps are also still a problem. I am giving you my honest opinion I have a ton of experience with HP gaming desktops over the years. A ton of trouble shooting. If you have had the Pc for a long time then check for dust clogs. If not return it.

If we are talking desktops Idle at 50c is not ok. On a weak cooler Idle should be around 28c to low 30s. On a powerful cooler you will se low 20s. anything above the 30s is not acceptable for idle and do not let anyone try to tell you otherwise.

Thanks for the responses. Unfortunately I don't think returning it is an option at this point. Apparently the CPU is rated for up to 100C, so I suppose it's not too pressing since the temps shouldn't be damaging, but it came with liquid cooling, so maybe the solution would be to install an aftermarket cooler on the CPU down the line.

Doing some more research, it would seem this might be expected for this particular processor. According to this anandtech breakdown (specifically the last graph on this page): https://www.anandtech.com/show/16341/intel-core-i9-10850k-review-the-real-intel-flagship/2, this processor reports hotter temperatures due to "thermal migration inside the silicon rather than cooling capacity". I won't pretend to understand everything in the article, but if they are getting similar temps on an open test bed with what they believe is the best air cooler on the market, I can't see how one would expect in-case temperatures to be lower.

Well I guess we have another one of those threads on the same subject, I wish that we can have all of those combined or have all new threads starting with Omen 30L get automatically checked against the old ones.
Or we just pin a top thread that all I9 based Omen 30L's are to expect a high temperatures, at this point there should be no surprise to anyone that the temps are above 90C and the CPU is thermal throttling.

Simple Google search look up other 10850k idle temps. Just look at what other people with the same processor on reddit. All of their idle temps are 28c to low 30s. If your idle temps are in the 50s you have a serious cooling issue. When a cpu is known to be hot they are talking about under load.
