I got my Omen 17 about 4 months ago . And recently I discovered that when I play "heavy" games, like AC Odyssey, the CPU temperature goes up to 97° C. My room temperature is around 20° C so I don't think that's the issue. There is also no performance drop in game and I can still touch the laptop. I just want to know if this is bad for long term use because I am planning on using this laptop for 4 years. And if it's bad, how can I solve the problem? Please let me know if my CPU is going to be crappy in the near future.
Hi, this is not bad for long term, the 97C is the Intel CPU temperature setting point by OMEN Gaming Hub (Previous called OMEN Command Center), especially in "Performance" mode. with this CPU temperature, system will make CPU power as high as possible. if you don't like this number, you can try to choose "Balance" mode or Comfortable mode. but the performance is not good as "performance" mode.
No I really like the performance this way. I ask this question because the temperature becomes orange (high cpu temp) in HP Command Center. Thanks for the answer, that was really what I was looking for 🙂
