OMEN Laptop - 15-ek0016nl
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Good morning,

I have the same problem of the person in this thread Solved: CPU gets very hot 90+C as soon as I start a game - HP Support Community - 6815254.

 

I am having issues after only 5 min of gaming, my CPU goes to 80+ degrees .

After only 15 min of playing Elden Ring with high settings in 1080p, the CPU has hikes to 96C. When just in windows idle it runs around 30C+

 

Any suggestions? Is it normal for this laptop class to run CPU so hot?

 

I have already tried:

>Updating my BIOS

>Updating my graphics drivers

>In Omen Gaming hub I have set Performance mode and Discrete graphic switcher

>Disabled battery saving settings

>Disabled antivirus

 

To have a just-not-that-high temperature of about 70 to 80 degrees I have to play with medium settings at 720p.

CPU Intel Core i5-10300H

max. turbo speed 4.5 GHz
Number of cores: With 4 cores

Okay, I have run enough tests now and I can safely say that undervolting has solved the problem for me.

 

I've found my sweet spot at around -100 ± 25 mV core voltage offset: on 10+ gaming session on Elden Ring of 3+ hours I've had an average cpu temperature of exactly 71°C (with rare peaks to 86°C) and experienced zero issues on my daily experience (even on higher battery saver modes).

 

Hope this will be helpful to anyone. Bye bye

That is normal for an HP Omen 15" machine, it may go over 90°C very quick. Please try a cooling pad such as

My friend had a cooling pad and it did basically nothing for the cpu.

 

Please, go on another thread to advertise your products.

I am trying undervolting now,  by using the Omen Gaming Hub "intelligent undervolting" voltage has been reduced by -0.075 V.

It seems working, now the cpu stays under 80C in the 70-80°C range while gaming. 

Maybe I'll try more, to find the sweet spot not to be bottlenecked.
