Right now the CPu is controleld by the bios

 

GPU you need to use MSI afterburner and select the cogwheel, fan tab, and set user fan control check mark and adjsut the curve up so fan kicks in higher at higher temps

Just so you know, P1xx is just the model series . We need the Product Number to look up your info.

Press Ctrl/Alt/S to open the info menu and you can find that info. It takes a few seconds to open.

 

I assume you are saying your CPU temp is high since you weren't specific. How hot is hot?

The 880 series does not have a fan speed control. The Omen Command Center only offers up to 3 Performance modes depending on what your specs are. The Performance Modes will either throttle or allow full power to the system which would determine fan speed also, but not in a manual control sort of way.

 

The bios has no controls to choose fan speed or Performance Modes. HP bios is locked down.

If your (Intel?) CPU is getting into the 90's and you want it lower, the only other way to drop temps (other than possibly re-pasting or getting a bigger cooler) is to disable the Turbo Boost feature. To do this... most users like ThrottleStop to undervolt the CPU power. Or you might have success going to the Power options > Advanced settings > Max processor state and drop it down between 99-94%.

That's about all I can offer for CPU temps. Let me know if you have other questions.
