Omen 880-549ng - CPU temps 90+ and Fan really loud

HP Recommended
Omen 880-549ng
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Dear Techies,


I'm having a problem with my Omen 880-549ng.

Basically while gaming or doing cpu heavy tasks, the cpu temp rises to above 90°C and the fan noise is just unbearable.

I can even hear the fan through my over-ear headset.


All drivers, including the bios is latest version.


I did run 3dMark - Firestrike and made some screenshots of HWMonitor and the actual sensor log doing so, which you may find here:


As far as I'm aware temps should not get that high at all, especially not on a water-cooled cpu. Furthermore the Fan noise being produced is simply abnormal high.


Would be great if someone could point me to a solution for this problem.


Kind Regards

I'm not using a laptop!

Furthermore, RAM load is negligible when only using one program, a game, at once.

No matter how many programs you have opened that may block RAM, if there is only one program, the game active.


Memory swapping already exists since a decade and more and was designed for that, especially nowadays with DDR4, block RAM isn't an issue anymore.


In the end, with a gaming configured rig, which an Omen is, the cpu temps should never see these levels of temperature, nor should the fan get that loud, when it should be designed to live and breath high CPU and GPU loads.
