    Just picked up an Omen 17 (1TB +128SSD) 1060 with 12GB RAM. Absolutely loving it.

    I'm having problems finding a backpack for it and was wondering in anyone has found something that fits it? I dont really want a handbag style.

    Cheers.

    I undervolted to -140 mV and was there with my new model Omen

    I repasted today and PUBG on ultra everything I was at 73 max GPU and 82 max CPU. Before Gpu was higher 70's and CPU was 90's.

    You got the latest Dragon style HP Omen 17? The one with one hinge for the screen? Those temps are fantastic. Which paste are you using and how did you apply it?

    Hey Guys!

    Had a couple of questions. I recently purchased the 15" with i7 and 1050ti. It's the one you can usually find at Bestbuy. See here.

    1. I've noticed some microstuttering in some games (Elite Dangerous). Is this because I'm running my library from the mechanical harddrive? Previously, I was using a desktop with an SSD and thought this difference might be causing this.

    2. My cpu temps are high (~94C) when playing any game that uses the Frostbite Engine (ME:Andromeda, BF1, Battlefront II) causing considerable fan noise. Is it generally accepted that you need to do a re-paste out of the box for a quieter computer? Undervolting and lowering the power profile helps a little with Andromeda. Are there any good guides specifically for re-pasting the Omen models?

    Thanks!

    The I7 7700HQ is a hot chip. It normally runs at mid 90's if insufficiently cooled. Most HP Omen have insufficient cooling I have found out. I sent my laptop in to assessed as it's overheating and freezing. Slow boots as well so will see what the technicians say? I have the earlier model that looks like the pavilions. The newer models do have improved cooling though. I now have to wait and see.
