Hey there,
I have my HP Omen 15 2019 and when I am playing intense games, the laptop overheats even underclocked, on a cooling pad (not repasted yet). I found out, that if I am gaming in Windows' low power mode, the temperatures are better, and I don't care about lower FPS and performance. My questions are: is 75-80°C on CPU and 70-76°C on GPU okay? Is it good to play games on low power mode?

it's not bad to do it. as you've already noted, you get lower power used and thus lower temps. the trade off is of course lower in game performance.

so long as you are ok with the pros and cons, then go for it. you're not gonna hurt anything by doing it. :)
