It is really, really, really good when you "mate" it with a good monitor such as

Save your self dont do the same mistake I did , this my take on that THING:
Joining to warn anybody who consider to buy this piece of JUNK, to look another way I have 900-000nx and this piece of **bleep** not only is overpriced for what it offers but all inside IS THE MOST BASIC OF ALL components you can find on market today.
This **bleep** is overpriced by at least 1200USD , worse of all the hp GTX 1080 nvidia is PROVEN 10-15% slower in performance form any other retail GTX 1080 Founders edition
- NO OVERCLOCKING capabilities that’s a MARKETING LIE
- NO ADVANCED OPTION IN BIOS
- NO CONTROL OVER the Fan's ( vents ) inside
- RAM is he MOST BASIC DDR4 doesn’t even have heat shields
-the pathetic OVERSIZED DIMOND BOX is able to host only microATX motherboards in all it greatness and 30KG of weight
- OMEN tool is a joke it doesn’t anything else then LED adjustments
- liquid cooling is a JOKE complete CRAP it barely mange to maintain operational temperature
- hp support on Vacation 365 days per year
- no UPDATED drivers , tool , bios
-hp doesn’t care about customers
-hp doesn’t care about solving problems
-hp doesn’t care to make mistakes right and release BIOS with advanced features
STAY AWAY from this at all costs if you are true PC gamer or PC enthusiast
All OMEN Desktop X 900 reviews are staged and basically complete lie and BS .

If you are still not convinced take a look at this embarresing situation

In reference to Superposition benchmark using extreme setting I was able to hit 4056 after installing an Asus ROG Strix 1080.
I can't get close to your friend's mark of 4248 either.
As iMaxx stated in your thread, there are too many variables involved.
Please check the GPU temps for my system. Minimum 43 C, Max. 62 C. Your system had a range of 51C to 81C. I still think the Omen runs much hotter than it should. This supports your point on the questionable thermal solution HP has implemented in the chassis.

maximum ever achived with no OC of anything is 4074 for me with stock speed however pwerlimit set to 115% Temp limit 88% manual set of fan to 65% for GFX with msi Afterburner , gpu max temp 77C cpu Max temp 66C , **bleep** this I still think OMEN SUX i never should go for it Im regreting a lot !

Just to add nvidia driver all set to default give me 3956 or something in that range in performace mode like I said arrond 4040 - 4070 and on my custom quality setings 3860 with no msi AFTERBURNER support the temp gos high as 81 for GPU and strangly somehow it affects cpu as it gose also higher around 78 , that really sux . In hap world everything is possible like I7 beaten by i 5 system , hp GTX slover then the rest , magicaly even DDR4 performs worse then DDR3 ...give me a break ! pathetic !
Most pathetic thing for 3570 USD rig they are so LAME to put DVDRW not even a BDRW ...IM SCREEEEMING out of missery! how much would they lose per unit ?? 5 - 10 USD ???

That was a point I did not make in previous post.
I built my system. Components cost $1993.00 USD.
I am amazed at the price you have paid.
You could have built a Xeon system at that price point.
I have a Blu Ray reader/writer. It was $50.00
