    According to the hardware maintenance manual on page 1 it uses Discrete Graphics only on the GTX 1060 and RX 550 models, and Hybrid Graphics on everything else.

    I see, On manual they're using the Max-Q version of the 1060GTX not the regular one.

    cpu is about 80c and gpu is around 70c .the left fan is spinning pretty good I would say at max the right fan is still on low .the max I have seen on the cpu after hours straight of prey was 85c and gpu 73c .
    its a crappy pic but they changed the cooling a lot in the newer model

    Hey, can you please check if this laptop has gen 2 thunderbolt 3 or not? The specs page seems to say id does, but there seems to be no post or mention of the Best Buy model having it.

    Anyone owned the previous Omen 17 model that looks like a pavillion? Did anyone manage to take off the back cover (Base cover) without damaging or scratching the surface area by the side of the front? I've taken out the screws but it doesn't want to separate, what a pain to upgrade and replace parts on this HP Omen 17. There clips but how do un-clip them without breaking them... heard must use a credit card mostly? But won't that leave marks in the front... ahh HP why make our lives difficult. :( More insight from the previous owners of the before model who upgraded there parts in the Omen 17, please direct me in the right direction. Much appreciate your inputs. Thanks

    Hey guys, finally got around to doing some testing on the RX 580 version of the machine.

    Running PUBG (since its all the rage these days)

    (EDIT: I used MSI Afterburner to lower the power limit just a bit, running the core at 1190 mhz, and was able to keep GPU temps at 72-73C and CPU at 70)

    I'm seeing 80C on both CPU and GPU. Framerate is solid, though my settings are a mix of ultra draw distance and textures, and low foliage etc.

    Attached are after burner pics of usage during PUBG.

    TIP: You can use Throttlestop to disable the turboboost of the 7700HQ, which limits it to 2.8ghz, helping with temps.

    This machine runs hot.

    Making another post separately so the images don't get mixed up. Temps and performance were much better in Company of Heroes 2 (one of the most demanding PC games if settings are high and a 4vs4 match is going on.

    With the specs:

    Omen 17 (2017 refresh)
    i7 7700HQ
    12gb ram
    1tb hdd
    Rx 580
