i got a HP Omen-X model 900-043nd with an additional 16 G RAM (totals 32 G) nearly 2 years worked great, completely quiet.
Been running Windows 10 and Ubuntu 16.10 and 18.04 in dual boot.
just recently the fans starting blasting. basically constantly. I wondered whether the switch for temp is inaccurate so i tested placing a regular livingroom fan close to the hw with the cap off. that seems to stop the fans most of the time. so temperature is monitored just fine. Im not sure whether 70 - 80 celsius is acceptable for the processor cores.
I noticed this issue being mentioned a lot but i havent found a solution here, or elsewhere. Just the mentioning that it was solved.
The noise bugs me a lot, specially since i used the hardware for my job as well, a substancial part of the time.
I m hoping for a solution.
