Would you post the full product number of your omen please?
Run the HP Support Assistant to find the Product Number.
Also, post a screen shot of the Omen Command Center so I can see what it shows exactly.
You can use the Windows Snipping Tool to take a screen shot.

I assume what you're asking about is why there is no overclocking settings.
The reason why is, your model didnt come with an unlocked processor.
It only has an i7 8700 and to overclock, you need the i7 8700k version with liquid cooling.
The command center is showing everything it should have for your particular system.
If its a new system and its not what you thought it would be, can you return it for a different one?
Otherwise, you would have to upgrade the cpu and cooler yourself and its really not worth the cost.

I have the overclockable version and I can tell you, you're not missing out on anything. There isnt much advantage for gaming.
It already has 16GB of ram and an SSD. With your current specs, you are golden as it is now. :Wink:
