Re: Overclock omen

Hello

 

HP provides very little option to overclock CPU or RAM in BIOS.

 

If that is what you like then you may be disappointed.

Re: Overclock omen

I guess ITS ok. I wasnt looking for the computer which was able to overclock that much. But when the warranty has run out and maybe after 2-3 years can I change the psu for a better one?

Hello

 

You should be able to upgrade the power supply.

 

I have done this on HP PC's with good results.

 

Did see a power supply upgrade problem in this forum with the internal Ultra Slim DVD burner HP is now using. It has a non-standard power connection.

Yes.

 

You can overclock an Omen. Your i5-660K is an unlocked processor.

 

The Intel Extreme Tuning utility should make it pretty straightforward.

Do a little reading on overclocking before you push it too hard.

The Thimpu motherboard in your system has a standard ATX 20-pin header on the motherboard. So the PSU can also be upgraded, but 500W is certainly enough power capacity for a beasty video card if you want to upgrade it.
