    Ok. Received my Omen 17t yesterday and with stock paste I am able to pull about 24500 of firestrike graphics with a +150/+800 on afterburner. Updated to the 190w VBIOS and was able to get around 26500 with the same settings in afterburner. I will do a repaste with thermal grizzly kyonaught and try again. Temps for the GPU were a max of 66C with 194w and 82C on the CPU (9880h 8 core)- this was just for the benchmark runs. Hell of a system for a tad over $1500. Solid build quality and this laptop looks superb.

    HP Omen 17t (i9-9880H and 2080 non-maxQ) with stock paste, 200W Vbios courtesy of the OP, at +175 core +400 vmem, -130mv on the i9 along with some other tweaks courtesy of @Mr. Fox

    87C max CPU temps on the physics test with a solid 4GHz frequency, 70C max on the GPU with 1860MHz at the lowest and roughly 1950 to 1975MHz average with the CPU at a solid 4.3GHz and 73C max during the GPU tests.

    https://www.3dmark.com/spy/9775373 (fixed the CPU ring offset and now I'm #1!)

    For reference, here it is bone stock (with bloatware AV still installed): https://www.3dmark.com/spy/9763049

    Has anyone done a repaste with Liquid Metal? Are they using paste or pads on the RAM chips and the VRMs?

    Did liquid metal and lapped the heat sink. The GPU is slightly higher than the cpu, meaning uneven contact on the cpu side leading to overheating even on liquid metal. It is a 8 core 16 thread behemoth though :D.

    I used pads on the vrms...

    did you replace the pads that came with the laptop originally?

    I get 26070 in Firestrike with +139 GPU, +300 RAM, -0.1650V on CPU and the tweaks linked by Arestavo (9750h model). Feels a bit low to me.

    Also, when running OVerwatch, it starts with 290-300fps but the framerates drops to half of it the longer I game. MSI Afterburner still shows a stable 4 GHz on the CPU and 1850-2050 on the GPU. That's kinda weird.

    Maybe more in the 27000+ range since Arestavo is sitting at 28k with the same graphics card and his faster cpu should not matter in the Graphics Test.

    Overall the results of the bios mod have been quiet underwhelming for me.
    With 150W bios and +160GPU/+800 mem I average at a boost clock of around 1850 in games and a Firestrike score of 25.100.
    With the 190W bios and +140GPU/+800 mem I average at a boost clock of around 1950 in games and a Firestrike score of 26.100. +160GPU will crash sometimes with the 190w bios.

    So we are talking about a 4-5% performance increase. This is bought by a 50W measured higher power draw, higher temperatures and louder fans. Currently that's not worth it for me, maybe if I decide to to a repaste later.

    Will the 180W bios from this thread work?
