Thinking of buying an Omen 880
Can someone tell me how noisy the fans are and electrical consumption on general use not in gaming mode

Fans are quiet. Just a little background hum.
Not sure about power consumption. I will say though that it works fine as a dual-purpose business and gaming PC; that's how I use mine. It's great for video editing, image editing etc.

@acfrance, welcome to the forum.
I agree fully with @onlyconnect statement on the noise level. I believe you would be surprised at how quiet it is. I have had three Omen computers (1 Notebook and 2 desktops). They all have been extremely quiet.
As for the power consumption, the Omen 880 is a Configure To Order (CTO) model. The power consumption would vary based on the processor, amount of memory and the video card. I believe it has a 500W power supply unit (PSU). You can decide which components you want and use power consumption calculator to determine the amount of power will be used.
