Hello @Shanes1

 

The Liquid cooled system is maintenence free, so there is nothing needed to be done. Except for keeping the dust cleared out of the radiator fins perhaps. 🙂

@Shanes1, welcome to the forum.

 

You are going to enjoy your new computer.  I have the 880-160se and it is a monster gaming machine.  I have the i7-8700K processor and can overclock it to 5.0 GHz, with the default voltage, using HP Omen Command Center.

 

As for maintenance on the liquid cooling system, it is a closed system that shouln't require any maintenance.  At least, I haven't found any mention of it in the documentation.

I have the same system, and today started to worry about the liquid cooler for no reason. Have had the system for two years, no problems. Just want to know what to look out for. This forum is great help.

@c11w , welcome back to the forum.

 

I don't believe that you should have any problems with the liquid cooling.  You can watch for any signs of leaking, however.  This is a very rare thing.

Good to be back. Been a while. 

I tend to go over my components every quarter year or so, and I hope that helps me spot any issues that arise. So far, though, I'm a very happy Omen owner. It's been running 24/7 (maintenance moments excepted) pretty much since mid-'18, and without issue.
