This is a joke - DO NOT BUY AN OMEN LAPTOP

image.thumb.png.422dd677ed4a1a26a26d6bca89e19c84.png 

 

Just repasted this thing, cleaned the fans, the whole deal - cpu hitting 100c ON BASE CLOCK IN GAME 

 

if nothing can be done i'll be selling this garbage can for cheap, hit me up if you're willing to take this shit off my hands.

Why not just use Intel Extreme Tuning Utility to refine the speeds?

i can only buy for what i can sell - which is probably around 7000 zloty - which is around 1700 dollars. i think.

thats why i said to keep an eye on it, maybe they keep going with the design and make it cheaper in the next gen

omen 17 2020 with an rtx 2080

Seems like it's just as thick as mine. Bad news for getting the 2080 version tho, mine has 8750H and 1060 only and it still overheats the CPU when both the CPU and GPU are at full load. It's fine if I only load one of the two at a time, not both.

 

You can control CPU clocks with speedshift, 0 is the most aggressive and 255 will make the CPU run really slowly. Find a balance there.

even just a normal stand will help a bit, just giving it more air will help, not a ton tho

gaming and laptops aren't a good combination no matter how much companies try to sell it to you

 

playing minesweeper or pinball could be considered as gaming too so it's not false marketing, companies will often use tricks like that to lure unaware buyers into their products. I'd just sell it and get a desktop PC or a console if you don't care about extreme graphics or stuff like that
