    I have not come across a omen with the i5 but I would think with a i5 and a 1060 it should be a good gaming pc .I would look for one with the i7-7700hq and the 1060 or 580 but that's me . good luck !

    Hello all,
    I'd like to ask what your idle temps are. My setup is i5-7300 + 1060/120hz panel on a 15" Omen and I'm currently getting what seem to me crazy high idle temps. I'm including my HWM screenshot below but GPU is at 55 while browsing and the CPU is mid 60s. This is with fans set to always on in bios!

    I'd also like to ask if anyone dealt with any stripped screws inside of their laptop. I can't repast mine because it came with a screw that was very much stripped and when I tried to get it out I managed to destroy it even more :(

    @FireLantern what were your temps at 100% load or at stress tests, any thermal throttling?

    No throttling, just suspiciously high idle temps.
    I'll run some stress tests over the weekend when I have time to verify that there is no throttling but I've had the computer for 2 months now and I don't think I noticed any throttling.

    I have a 2017 Pavilion 15t. It has the same internal design as this model Omen.
    http://www.myfixguide.com/manual/wp-content/uploads/2016/10/HP-Omen-15-ax000-Disassembly-5.jpg

    Recently, due to summer weather, I removed the original thermal paste and replaced it with Arctic MX-4.
    GPU temperatures decreased 2-3C which is what I expected.
    But CPU temperature decreased by approximately 4-5C which surprised me.

    Before the re-paste, cpu temperature was always notice-ably higher than gpu temperature. I just thought this is normal.
    But after the re-paste, cpu and gpu temperature are now more near each other (although it depends on cpu/gpu usage).
    I only used a small "drop" of thermal paste on both cpu and gpu, and I tightened the heatsink screws, very tight.
    The original thermal paste was a somewhat thick layer.

    By the way, many budget notebooks/laptops are now sold with only one ram stick.
    For gaming, it's significantly better to use two ram sticks.

    I'd say that selling laptops with 1 stick is better, especially considering most laptops come with 1 8GB stick, at least in the 1000€ price range. Then it's easier to buy another 8 gig stick and upgrade than to swap out a 4gb stick for a 8gb one.

    The problem with keeping the original one stick of ram and later buying a second stick is that the original ram is usually low performance ram.
    If you sell the original one stick of low performance ram, you can replace it with two sticks of high performance ram.
    High performance ram can make a notice-able difference in some games such as Fallout 4.
    But if you don't care about gaming, then sure, why not keep the original one stick of ram.
