Omen by HP laptop 17-cb1xxx
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Playing a low-burden game such as HOMM got my cpu temperature to hover at 98 celsius, the fan is constantly roaring. Is this normal/healthy for a gaming laptop? I don't play a lot of games but this has got me concerned. For the record, I do have Edge running with about two dozens tabs open, but still, this is a 2000+ dollar gaming machine.

Over 95°C  is very normal on an Omen machine but that is not really good at all.
