Hi , I had some problems with my Omen a month back - they fully replaced the graphics card, motherboard and a few minor things. It got upgraded to a GTX 2080. Ever since Ive gotten it back , the temperatures when gaming have been significantly higher , 85 Celsius when playing Call of Duty with Medium Effects on at 100fps. My idle temperatures are even much higher sitting at a 45-55 degrees Celsius. I am wondering what I can do about this. I am planning on cleaning it here soon , But I feel like the problem roots deeper then that. Any recommendations would much be appreciated. My whole set up goes :
1x 144hz monitor
2x 60hz 1080p monitors.
I am open to any suggestions open at any price. Thank you for your time 🙂

Welcome back to the forum.
I am not a HP employee.
What component are you referring to, graphics card or CPU?
Consistent 85 C temps on the graphics card is more problematic than consistent 85 C temps on the CPU. Both temps are not good and will degrade the useful life of each component.
I would say the current thermals suggest you need better chassis airflow. I have a 2080. It runs hot compared to lesser Nvidia cards. My card runs peak temps around 78 C when running Furmark about 30 minutes.
I also have a 9900k with liquid cooling and two 140 mm fans moving cool air from the front to the rear of the case. The CPU peaks at 65 C when running Prime95 for about 30 minutes.
You need to get the hot air out of the case to control 2080 temps and CPU temps if you have a CPU air cooler.

Hi, I am referring to my Graphics card mainly, they both stay within a few degrees of each other. So is there anything I can do to help get the hot air out? I have stock everything, Just the stock air cooler for the i78700k , and a single fan 2080. Could i possibly look into new fans and would even a new case help?

I have never worked with this chassis and motherboard.
HP designs systems to their specs and may modify components and use proprietary connections.
You will void the warranty if you modify the PC.
Your MB (Link) appears to only have two internal fan headers. This means you would have to use a fan splitter cable or add a fan controller. Plus, I don't know if you can even add a second fan in your case. You would have to check this.
The front panel HDD LED. power button, and lighting control module connectors could be proprietary. This would break moving the MB to a different case.
You might be able to add a CPU liquid cooler. Most AIO CPU liquid coolers require an open USB 2.0 header on the MB and a spare SATA power connector from the power supply. I don't see any USB 2.0 headers on your MB. Adding a CPU liquid cooler may indirectly help GPU temps by reducing internal chassis temps.
I would have a local tech take a look to see what can be done to improve CPU and GPU cooling.
