    Completely normal to get 50-60 with even just chrome/internet explorer and watching YouTube vids especially with your ambient temps that side. Quite normal. Enjoy your laptop, let us know the temps of your CPU and GPU while playing a game.

    Hey guys - so i have the 2018 HP omen 15 with a fresh install of windows 10 and an updated BIOs. I'm getting a lot better temps now after updating the BIOs and undervolting, but my damn clock is totally messed up and fails to keep time properly whenever i put the computer to sleep or shut it down! I have to go into the date/time settings and toggle the update clock automatically for it to fix the time. I've tried going into the control panel and setting the server, clicking update server, and everything else i can think of. If i shut the computer down at 1:30am, and turn it on 12 hours later, the clock will say 1:30am.

    Anyone else experiencing this issue on their end? Thanks for any help!

    Hey karcho, would you mind confirming whether the color depth on your display is 6 bit or 8 bit (it's under advanced display settings under Display in the control panel). I picked up the $999 version from Microcenter with the 60hz display, and I'm having an issue where certain shades of blue and gray show some faint horizontal lines, resulting in larger fields of these colors (for instance, lots of the solid blue areas of Win 10) looking striped/textured rather than solid. I've found a few comments about this issue online, without much resolution, but it sounds like it could be an issue with my display having 6 bit color depth, so I'm wondering it upgrading to the 144hz display might resolve this. Apparently it's an issue that might also just have to do with an individual person's eyes and what they're sensitive to, so I'm at a bit of a loss whether I have a faulty display, whether I need an upgrade, or if I'm just out of luck and maybe need to think about returning.

    temperatures while gaming are in the middle 80C , memory utilization is 25% at startup it is kinda weird but it looks like chrome is using most of the ram
    @ak1119 its 8bit

    Does anyone seem to get choppy performance even though your FPS counter is showing a steady 60 FPS? I've been playing Fortnite/PUBG/Black Ops 4 beta, and while all of these games run at 60+ fps, some moments definitely feel more choppy than others (same framerate).

    Going to test a few setups, see if it's a throttling issue, the drivers are the latest and I've updated the BIOS as well, CPU also seems to be running at 3.9GHZ all the time while playing, it's not unplayable but definitely noticeable.

    Hi ya. Just wonder if the Omen Command Center's MACRO buttons are working on your apps. I have the Reactor mouse as well but the macros seem to be not working at all.
