    I don't think it's overheating for heavy gaming around 80-85c cpu and the same for the gpu I was just wondering if that's what temps you guys get or if that's normal for these laptops. The weird thing is that I only play at high settings 1080p limited to 60fps and get the same temps on Witcher 3 which only uses about half the gtx 1070 in msiafterburner, as when I play RDR2 which uses 80% or more of the gpu, you would think an old game like TW3 and lower usage would result in lower temps but not so. 7700hq.

    I don't mean to spam this forum but I tried the general hp forum and got no replies. OK Omen 17, 7700hq, 1070, 1080p 120hz. This used item has a few problems I'm wondering about to return or not.

    1. About 15 keyboard keys don't work under normal typing pressure, usually if I hold down HARD or bang on it they will work. If I take off the key itself and press the switch it usually works ok. Any ideas about getting those working? I know you can't easily swap out the kb in this model. I do have a wireless kbm that I'm just using atm. Anyhing?

    2. Battery comes up bad per hp diagnostics. I don't plan on using this huge thing unplugged however so it can wait if at all.

    3. Backlight bleed. It's much more noticeable when the laptop is under load and hot, leading me to believe that heat is the main culprit, normal non-gaming use it's not too noticeable as it's around the taskbar and the sides not as bad. Will this get worse over time? This is I'm guessing from 2016-17 so it's been through it's paces.

    if keys have problems than I would return it or ask for a replacement keyboard.
    Btw, it they are working by pressing hard on them , it could be just dust or other things that got unederneath some keys? Have you tired to clean it? Its pretty long to disassemble, but an easy solution could be to usa some pressure air canisters and see if it works..

    I have a return label for shipping but I'm just wanting to try and see if it's something I can work on, or just use the wireless kbm for a while. It was a really good deal for what I got and it has performed in games really well. It's about 15 letters and some others than have to be pressed really hard. I did take off the "G" key and work on it, works fine now so maybe I can try that on the others.

    Looking to purchase the HP Omen 17t from HP's website. Can get it with the 2080 Super for $1718 before tax, which seems like a great deal.

    The only display option is: 17.3" diagonal FHD 144 Hz IPS anti-glare WLED-backlit (1920 x 1080)

    A few questions for the community:
    1) Does it always come with G-Sync? It's not advertised on HP's website
    2) What is the response time of the display?
    3) The PSU advertised is 200W. Does HP give you a larger one if you purchase the 2080 Super? Wouldn't 200W limit the performance?

    Thank you!

    My 2020 17t-cb100 with 2080 Super (150w) and i9-10885H came with a 330w brick.

    I just found out my OMEM Command center was just updated and renamed to OMEN Gaming Hub. Now it has support for undervolting for my 9th gen Intel (and apparently for 10th gen too!)
    If you can't see it, look in Microsoft Store and if it doesn't work consider updating your bios.

    FYI: I finally got thru on HP chat and this was their response to these questions when purchasing directly from HP. I'm kind of bummed about the no G-Sync.

    1) Does it always come with G-Sync? It's not advertised on HP's website
    HP: no G-Sync

    2) What is the response time of the display?
    HP: usually 5ms

    3) The PSU advertised is 200W. Does HP give you a larger one if you purchase the 2080 Super? Wouldn't 200W limit the performance?
    HP: 200W power supply even when purchasing the 2080 super

    4) For the Omen 17t cb100, is there any difference between the "8VD66AV_1" and "17H47AV_1" product codes besides the options you configure in the Customize section? Are they both the 2020 version of the Omen 17t? It looks like the 8VD66AV_1 version just gives you more options in the customizer (more lower tier options available)
    HP: The only difference is that the 17H47AV_1 have better base specs with more configuration option than the 8VD66AV_1.

    @BlodyMonky

    I don't understand what that HP chat agent is talking about. I ordered the 8VD66AV_1 which shipped a 2020 17t-cb100 with a i9-10885H & 2080 Super and G-Sync on a 1080p 144hz CMN175D display. Now mine was a lot more than your price. Im not sure how it shows a 2080 Super under $2500 in any configuration. I ended up at $3018 but they sent it with a minor minor gouge on it. So I got another $320 off. $2700. People say 5-7ms on the screen. It is not noticable.

    @OneSickOmen17t

    Thank you. I decided to speak with another agent after you posted your comment.
    Looks like it does include G-Sync, but depends on which configuration. The agent linked me a guide that included this information:

    Intel Core i9-9880H processor and 8 GB of discrete graphics memory (GeForce RTX 2080; G-Sync)L59778-xx1
    Intel Core i7-9750H processor and 8 GB of discrete graphics memory (GeForce RTX 2080; G-Sync)L59777-xx1
    Intel Core i7-9750H processor and 8 GB of discrete graphics memory (GeForce RTX 2070; G-Sync)L59776-xx1
    Intel Core i7-9750H processor and 6 GB of discrete graphics memory (GeForce RTX 2060)L59775-xx1
    Intel Core i7-9750H processor and 6 GB of discrete graphics memory (GeForce GTX 1660Ti)L59774-xx1
    Intel Core i7-9750H processor and 4 GB of discrete graphics memory (GeForce GTX 1650)L59772-xx1
    Intel Core i5-9300H processor and 6 GB of discrete graphics memory (GeForce GTX 1660Ti)L59773-xx1

    To answer your question on the price, HP is knocking a couple hundred off the price for Black Friday right now. That combined with me only electing for the 10750H processor and the fact that HP's 10% off Holiday code works in conjunction with their Black Friday sale....you can get pretty nice discounts right now.
