Product: HP Omen 15
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)
As the title says, I'd like to find a way to consistently get good performance while lowering the fan speed. I've tried using Throttlestop and checking both the "disable turbo" and "speed shift epp" options (which I saw worked for another person in a different post), however I still get performance drops when in balanced mode on the Omen Command Center. I even tried undervolting the CPU in Throttlestop, however I read somewhere that this has no effect on the newer HP Omen laptops. The only way I can consistently get good FPS is to keep it in performance mode, however the fans ramp up to max even when I set them to manual control. This is unnecessary, as the temp rarely gets above 80 C. Is there any other way to drop the fan speed, or to ensure I don't get FPS drops when in balanced mode?
For reference, this is a brand new laptop with an i7-10750 and GeForce RTX 2060.

To be clear, it runs 100 FPS on max settings in the games I play and averages in the 60s C while on balanced mode. Really I just need to find a way to keep it on balanced mode and have it not throttle the performance after a while. It regularly does this, requiring me to briefly switch to performance mode then switch back to balanced mode.

@noahs90 Welcome to HP Community!
I understand that Lower Fan Speed on HP Omen 15.
There are many ways to increase FPS and system performance:
Update the BIOS.
For desktop PCs, go to HP Desktop PCs - Updating the BIOS.
For notebook PCs, go to HP Notebook PCs - Updating the BIOS
Update the graphics driver.
Go to HP Customer Support - Software and Driver Downloads, enter your PC model, then select the driver for your graphics card.
Most games allow you to change the graphics settings. Using a lower graphic quality often improves FPS.
Close any applications or programs that are not being used.
Turn on Game Mode. Game Mode is a new feature in Windows 10 Creators Update that improves gaming performance by limiting background processes and programs from using system resources while a game is running.

Drivers and bios are all up to date, and if you read my post you'd understand that lowering graphics settings is not the solution (I tried previously to verify, no change). Like I mentioned before, it averages 100 FPS on performance mode and initially on balanced mode, however the problem is that on balanced mode it quickly drops the FPS to the 30s. The only cause I can think of is some sort of throttling. The fans do not need to be as high as they are on performance mode, since it stays plenty cool on balanced mode. I'm looking for an actual solution here...otherwise I'm gonna have to return this laptop.
