    We are all safe up till the Thermal Junction of the GPU and CPU which are both 100- 110 C Degrees I think. I know the 1070 is 100 C and the 7700HQ is also 100 C Degrees. Undervolting will have to be done if one is experiencing temps of 94-97 C Degrees as you cutting it finely. Laptop are designed to run hot not like Desktops.

    Guys, I wish to ask if anyone else is facing this issue. I ordered a m2 nvme drive to use in the HP Omen 17. I tried removing the backplate, but 2 screws in the middel of the sides (on opposite sides) are nearly impossible to remove and i managed to strip them in futile attempts to unscrew them. (stripped screws are screws with the notches smoothed out, making it impossible for a screw driver to unscrew them).

    The rest of the screws were easily removed. I would like to know if anyone else faced this issue, and also warn others attempting this. Obviously it differs from machine to machine, but since the middle screws bear the greatest amount of torsional stress, be very careful attempting to remove them.

    Let me know if anyone else ran into this.

    Hi Prosetheus. What is the exact model of HP Omen 17 do you own? The new dragon red model or the Pavillion lookalike Omen model? What is your Model number as well.

    Get the iFixit extractor set if you still can't remove them

    It seems like the big OEMs have been getting a ton of lock-tight thread glue because they don't want people opening their laptops.

    You should be able to get a good set of steel screws on ebay real cheap.

    Something like this
