Hi guys, I got a new laptop less than a month ago. Basically, the specs are:



i7 8750h - 8GB RAM - SSD + HDD - RTX 2060



It's performing very well and, as it's a HP Omen, I was messing around with the HP Omen Command Center. It will, in one of the menus, display the CPU temp and GPU temp. And lo and behold, the CPU temp is actually very high while in games . Image 1: View: https://imgur.com/a/o0UeZ36




I got a little concerned and installed SpeedFan and see what it's about. Image2: View: https://imgur.com/a/DXwICJP


So as it appears, the GPU and Disk Drives are on normal temps. Then there's "Temp1", followed by the CPU cores (zero though five) which surprisingly also have decent temperatures.

Now my questions are - what is this "Temp1" and why is the "Fan1" speed 44x times faster than the "Fan2" speed? I don't believe that's right...

Given that you're on an Intel platform, did you install Intel XTU and undervolt the CPU? If not, you should since that processor does tend to run hot when taxed. Make sure you're on the latest BIOS update for your laptop prior to any tweaking.
