HP Omen Overheating and dropping max CPU freq.

HP Recommended
HP omen 17" w033dx
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

When playing certain games the CPU will overheat reaching ~ 90 C and the max freq. of CPU will automatically drop to about 10 percent and then will jump back to 100%. 

 

I also tried to play while using laptop cooling pad and achieved same results.

 

with cooling pad: 2-3/per minute

w/o cooling pad: 4/per minute

 

i would buy another two cooling pads but I think the math does not work like that here.

 

This is what it looks like.

Hellos @Sparkles1

 

Thanks for the reply.

 

Heres what I have done .

 

  • Updated the BIOS to the latest version aviable. Somehow the BIOS Date remained 7/19/2016
  • Using HP PC Diagnostics UEFI I diagnosed that my computer is overheating. ( you don't say )
  • I Cleaned the fans using compressed gas cleaner
  • I have HP Coolsense enabled, furthermore I also went into BIOS and maximized the fan speed
  • I am sitting in a cool room ( 20 C, 68 F)
  • my laptop is still sitting on cooling pad about 1.5 above the table

I still experience the same issue. No improvement whatsoever.

 

I went ahead and downloaded SpeedFan to gather more information about my temperatures and fan speeds

 

Here is what I found

 

SpeedFan Stats

 

 

I figured that i have two fans

  1. is on max while gaming at about 4k rpm
  2. is almost always idling at about 130 rpm

 

I think those fans are for cpu and gpu, but i wouldn't know for sure.

 

I wonder if the second fan should also be pumping the air out and not idling all the time.

Hi @Skyviewer,

 

Thank you for the update. Yes the HP Omen have two fans. I believe that they should run in unison. If you are under warranty, please contact HP Support for further assistance. With your permission they can remotely connect to your system to help locate issues and arrange for servicing if necessary. Contact HP Worldwide.

Same here! However, for some reason, I can not get FanSpeed to read my fan speeds, it does not detect fans. Have you managed to resolve the issue?

Hey i got the solution few weeks ago in a german hp forum. The HP omen are issue with a  120W AC Adapter. But for proper funktion and performance it needs a 150W AC Adapter. Probably you will find one that fits in the HP Store. Greetings

Wow that is pretty unusual solution! Does that mean that on battery you do not have problems with CPU overheating? Now that you have 150W adapter problem is solved? I was expecting the problem to be in degraded thermal paste or misfunctioning fans.
