HP Omen 17 so noisy - how to control fan speed?
My new HP omen 17 w010ng drives me crazy - it is so noisy. Even if the Geforce is switched off, the left fan starts to switch on very easily, running a Youtube video is enough.
I have read about HP Control software allowing to control fan speed - it was very difficult to install and I only found out that the ventilator settings are already on normal. I switched the ventilators off in Bios, still not much change. Then i ensured in the graphic driver that Geforce is only used for Lightroom and Photoshop, this helped a bit, but still I see that ventilators speed up far earlier then required.
I have tried HWinFO64, but no fan speed controls are possible. The freeware Speedfan is the same, I see the fan speed but cannot control it. I found the freeware Notebook FanControl, but there is no configuration file for Omen 17 available.
Did anybody out there solve the problem? How can I control and reduce the fan speed?

Cooling Fan speed higher than normal. Is that right?
Thank you for sharing the issue details. I would like to help you.
Generally, the Fan speeds are set a specific top and bottom end temp ranges and cannot be changed.
However, if the Fan speed has increased drastically, it could be due to BIOS corruption as well which can be fixed by updating it or reflashing it.
I recommend you to try performing the BIOS update for the following hardware and check if that fixes the issue
Hope this helps. Let me know for more.
