Temperatures on the HP Omen

Omen 15
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I recently purchased an Omen laptop, the specs are i7 9705H, RTX 2060, 16 GB RAM. While gaming the temperatures are 77c - 89c. Worried about the temperatures i went into the power options and turned my Max CPU State to 95% (I was told this would disable Turbo Boost) this has turned my cpu down to around 2 Ghz from 4 Ghz and the temperatures are much cooler, but i am noticing frame drops and hangs here and there and overall a slight decrease in performance. I wanted to ask if those high temps were normal and if i should just turn it back up and keep gaming. I want my laptop to last atleast 4-5 years as i will use it for collage.

Temperatures on the HP Omen

Hello @Lonecarcass 

 

Yep that seems to be normal for an Omen laptop and that CPU (and Ive seen it reported on a few other brand laptops also).

Those CPU temps if while "gaming" are reaching 89c, its up there but not going to bring the life of the CPU to an end in 5 years. If it were in the mid 90s, I would be more concerned. Disabling Turbo Boost will bring the temps down, but yes you will see some hit in performance if gaming. I assume you are gaming while plugged in to the power cord. That is best for performance.

 

You didn't mention which Omen model you have. It always helps us help you better if you always post that when starting a thread. You can find the PRODUCT number in the HP Support Assistant and it will tell me what you have.

 

Open the Omen Command Center and I believe you should have a section for Performance Control. In that, there should be an option for Comfort Mode. Enable that instead of turning down the Max CPU state. See if that helps without as much performance hit on your games. Let me know if that works.

I tried putting it to performance mode but it didnt have much effect and the fans got really loud.  I think my Omen model is Omen 15-dh0xxx.

OK Thanks... If your temps get somewhat high, the fan is going to kick in and sound loud because its got to run fast to keep the system cool. Its a gaming machine, they dont run quiet like a small X-360 for example. I would think Comfort mode would have lowered the temps somewhat.

 

With that said, you could try a tool like Intels XTU or Throttle Stop to undervolt the CPU. Ive heard those that use it, that the performance hit was very minimal.

If you are getting not over 89c peak, I wouldn't worry too much. You could try undervolting with a mild voltage drop setting and experiment. That is about the best I can offer from a forum stand point.

When the fans kick up during gaming as normal, does it in anyway reduce the overall fan life?

That might be debatable and I don't have any facts on those particular fans. But generally speaking, a fan is a mechanism and if it is running faster, it could potentially wear the mechanism out sooner. But how much sooner, I would have no way of knowing.

But any of my rigs that have had the fans running high, have never failed for the long amount of time I had them. Ive seen fans fail that didn't run at high speeds also.

Basically I wouldn't worry about it. I would rather replace a fan 5 years down the road, than a CPU because it didn't get cooled.
