I own a HP omen 15, it has a i5-9300H and gtx 1650. It overheats a lot when im gaming, it tends to hit 95+ temps and games performance is affected due to that as well. Even in idle the temps are far from satisfactory. I have reset my windows completely as well but the temperatures are still high. My gpu also hits 90+ during gaming. I would like some help to reduce my temperatures

How long have you had the laptop?
Did this happen since day 1 or only recently?
What are the temps on idle?
Its possible it might need to be re-pasted. If you are under warranty, you can contact HP Support for further info.
Or you could re-paste it yourself as long as you don't screw anything up, else the warranty will become void.
Make sure there is no dirt blocking the vents. Blow some air into the vents to loosen any lint.
Then after a re-paste, if the temps are still extremely high, you would want to try undervolting the CPU. This will drop a little performance because it disables Turbo Boost, but FPS doesn't drop very much.
Some users prefer a tool like Throttle Stop or Intel XTU.

Thank you for the quick response, i got this laptop last august. It has been overheating pretty much since i bought it, I figured if i reset windows things might get better since undervolting got me nowhere cause i am pretty clueless regarding it. On idle i get around 65, when im browsing the net it goes beyond 75.

You are getting 65 shorlty after boot and at idle? Thats a little high, yes!
A reinstall of Windows might work. If you have something downloaded that is eating up resources right away, a reinstall would clean that out. You can use the Create media Windows 10 and an 8GB USB drive to do it.
If that did not work, I would consider a repaste of the cpu gpu. Use a high quality paste like Thermal Grizzly Kryonaut Thermal Paste, if you can find it.
