    Dang, I barely updated to Bios F.30, and my Omen 17-cb0009nl already has another bios update F.32 (notes: Provides improved system stability).
    As usual, Hp doesn't specidie if it has or not the plundervolt update inside (F.30 doesn't for my model).
    Anyone tried it yet?

    I had this happen if my screen saver turned on or screen turned off while Chrome was on the screen. I google'd the answer and it doesn't do it anymore. Sorry I forgot exactly how. I was little inebriated at the time...lol

    Its been a long time since I was active on this forum, probably 14years ago when I was carting around a dell 17in and playing bioshock. Long since changed email etc lost password

    Anyway, after some time with smaller hp business laptops, bought a new OMEN Laptop - 15-ek0003na
    I put a second NNMe 1TB drive in it, this thing flies. Christalmighty what a difference to an elitebook with an SSD. For productivity work this is instant.

    I did have a Razor 1660 for a minute, but couldn't get on with the keyboard and it was louder, liked the chassis though.

    My recent gaming has been restricted to low demand games like cold waters so looking forward to being able to do more. It has the 2060gtx and I saw 103watts power draw max on hwinfo it that means anything.

    I need to learn how to manage the laptop as it went off on a mad max fan burst on auto when just playing cold waters which is more of a cpu game, which is why I came surfing over here

    I know the design is a little less robust than the z book line but I am surprised at how close in weight it and charger is to my old 14in G1 840, and as I travel a lot, I love that

    very happy....

    Just updated My Omen 17-cb0009nl to the latest bios (F.32).
    No plundervolt patch so we can still undervolt our CPU's.
    Tested with TS 8.70 & CPUID HWMonitor 1.41

    That's a Nvidia driver problem most definetly. It happens to me too with recent drivers. USually when the LCD panel goes into sleep mode.

    I have 2018 Omen 15 with 8750h and I'm very confused about plundervolt, maybe you can help clear my confusion? Originally when I setup my Omen back when new, if I offset core voltage too low using throttlestop my laptop would crash. Now, no matter how low core voltage is set to, even something silly as -600mV, my laptop won't crash and core voltage can't be set lower than 550mV.All other voltage settings work as expected, set them too low, laptop will crash, except core voltage. My new Sager I got just couple weeks ago shows exactly same behavior. Is your computer working the same as mine?
    Can you crash it by setting (only) core voltage too low? The reason I'm asking is because 1) I don't believe Intel and HP would leave all those computers vulnerable to plundervolt all this time.
    2). I hazard to speculate all those computers are already fixed against plundervolt, by setting hard limit on how low can you set core voltage and therefore won't be any more plundervolt fixes for them.
    Maybe the laptops that have undervolting disabled altogether have no capability to set lower voltage limit for core, so it's all or nothing type of thing, or they need to be more secure? The way my Omen works now, I don't believe you can use plundervolt to break in.

    I followed this guys video and was able to get both CPU and GPU temps down. Decent workaround until someone can offer a hacked undervolt solution for HP omen laptops
