HP Omen 30L - mm AIO aRGB Upgrade

The completed upgrade so far for my girlfriend’s #HPOmen 30L AMD version. Changed from stock cooling to #coolermaster MasterLiquid R, and changed to Crucial 1TB P5 SSD from the stock GB. There’s a 92mm aRGB fan on the way from Aliexpress for the rear. The AIO would be too thick for push pull as it’s intended so strapped to the front as I’ve seen other Omen users do. The RGB control for both the AIO and RGB work properly and required a powered USB hub such as the NZXT used vs the simple PCB in another photo. Since both the Cooler Master aRGB controller and the NZXT hun require SATA power, a SATA power splitter / extender was used. The extra slack was managed and hidden between the two hard drive cages. The sustained temperatures have come down a lot during gaming sessions vs the weak little cooler that comes stock for this #HP Omen 30L. However whether it’s due to the motherboard’s power management or bad airflow, it still can get pretty high. Girlfriend is happy with the effects and no more lag and stuttering when gaming.

30l cooling omen hp

HP’s Omen 25L and 30L desktop lineup got a design refresh, along with some improved cooling back in May. Thanks, likely, in large part to a combination of COVID-related delays and recent Nvidia GPU launches, we’re just now getting to take a close look at the larger of the two, the HP Omen 30L, to see if it's one of the best gaming PCs.

Aside from new chassis designs, HP is also focusing on using familiar name-brand parts this time around, which helps the big-box brand deliver a configurable system that’s more like what you’d get from smaller companies like iBuypower or Maingear. That’s a smart move on HP’s part as far as we’re concerned, because it also means pretty much everything is standard and user-upgradable. But the system HP shipped us with a Core iK and an RTX , while certainly powerful, could improve performance with better CPU cooling. There’s also quite a bit of pre-installed software here, though HP does a mostly good job of keeping it hidden.

But despite being a much larger company than much of its competition in the custom gaming desktop realm, HP's biggest problem here -- at least currently at the end of -- seems to be stock issues. There were lots of configuration options similar to our test system available from HP.com, Amazon, Best Buy and elsewhere leading up to the holiday season. But after Cyber Monday and for at least a couple weeks afterward, almost all configurations with current-gen RTX or RTX graphics cards were sold out. As we wrote this intro, a similar configuration with a slightly lower-end CPU, half the SSD storage and the same RTX as in our review unit was available on Amazon for a reasonable price of about $2, But when we reloaded the page minutes later, it was also sold out, save for from a third-party seller charging a much-inflated $4,

Design of the the HP Omen 30L

Image 1 of 4
Image 2 of 4
Image 3 of 4
Image 4 of 4

There’s nothing that veers dramatically from the gaming desktop norm with HP’s Omen 30L, but that’s perfectly fine. Rather than something like a big cube, the Omen 30L is a classic mid-tower, standing inches tall, inches deep and inches wide. It comes in basic black, with glass front and left side panels.

Despite the solid-glass front, airflow shouldn’t be a major issue because the front of the case has metal mesh sides that are over 2 inches wide and run from top to bottom. That said, the Omen could still do with better cooling, as you get just the one front intake fan, a smaller 80mm exhaust at the back and another mm fan on the small AIO radiator mounted to the PC case’s top. While lesser CPUs should be fine with the mm AIO included here, HP sent the Omen with a Core iK, which would be better served by a bigger radiator. More on that later.

The front gets a distinctive, look thanks to a large diamond-shaped RGB light above the Omen branding, which harkens back to the Omen brand’s VodooPC roots, but in a minimalist fashion. Below the diamond and the branding is a mm Cooler Master fan with an RGB ring behind a tinted sheet of glass, giving the case a monolith-like look with RGB accents.

Components and Upgradeability for the HP Omen 30L

The fan looks good and never got noticeably loud during our testing. But, oddly, the lighting of the front fan doesn’t sync with the rest of the system -- or at least it didn’t with the included HP Omen Gaming Hub software. But after a few uses, the software prompted me to download a beta version of Omen Light Studio, which then flawlessly coordinated the RGB between the diamond-shaped Omen light on the front, the fan at the bottom, the RAM and an RGB light strip tucked up in the top. I’d argue that Corsair does RGB better with its Vengeance i, but the light show here isn’t bad after you install a bit of extra software.

As with most high-end desktops we’ve looked at in recent months, HP pairs a current high-end mainstream Intel CPU (the Core iK in this case) with our current best graphics card pick, the Nvidia RTX This time around the company is playing up its use of familiar brands in its other components too. 

In the roughly $3, configuration that HP sent us for testing, you also get 32GB of HyperX memory clocked at 3, MHz, along with ample storage. The boot drive here is a 2TB “WD Black by Omen” SSD, (which appears to be a custom drive, rather than an off-the shelf WD Black SSD), along with a 2TB, 7, RPM Seagate hard drive. The power supply is a W Cooler Master model, the same company that makes the RGB front intake fan.

Around back are seven more USB ports that, while labeled with tiny numbers to designate their speed, are all black. That will likely lead to some confusion when trying to plug in an external device that needs the fastest speed. You get two USB , two USB Gen 1 and two USB Gen 2 (10 Gbps) ports, all of the Type-A variety, as well as a single USB-C port that’s also USB Gen 2. Also here is a Gigabit Ethernet jack and three analog audio jacks.

Continuing the external tour to the ports, you get a pair of USB-A Gen 1 (5 Gbps) in a recessed angled panel up top, alongside separate headphone and mic jacks and a slim power button that, while it’s easy enough to press, looks like it would be more at home on a laptop than a desktop.

 

There’s a whole lot of unused black space on the motherboard’s I/O plate, but at least HP covers the basics here and provides three speedy ports. Below these ports you’ll find the video connections on the graphics card: three DisplayPorts a and a single HDMI

As for internal expansion options, there isn’t a whole lot. The Micro-ATX board doesn’t have any spare PCIe slots -- not that you’d be able to use them behind the large RTX anyway. There’s a second inch drive bay, which HP has helpfully pre-routed SATA data and power cables to, and an empty M.2 slot behind a metal cooler, just above the power supply and below the graphics card.

It’s also worth noting that HP includes a very solid plastic anchor for the end of the graphics card, which mounts to the front drive cage. GPU sag shouldn’t be a problem here, and this system should also travel better than most systems with large GPUs. 

Gaming & Graphics Performance on the HP Omen 30L

Thanks to a pairing in our review configuration of Intel’s top-end consumer-oriented Core iK and our current best graphics cards pick, Nvidia’s stellar (though tough to find) RTX , HP’s latest Omen is a gaming powerhouse in our review config. But it doesn’t always win against similarly configured systems we’ve tested recently, like the Corsair Vengeance i ($4, as configured with a similar Core iK and a slightly higher-end RTX ) or the Alienware R11 ($4, as tested, with a K and RTX ). The Omen faces its most direct challenge in our desktop battle with the iBuypower RDY IWBG, which pairs the Core iKF (effectively the same CPU as in the Omen, but without integrated graphics) and an RTX for $2, as tested. Note that the iBuypower system has less RAM (16GB) and storage capacity (1TB) as our Omen. But in most cases, that shouldn’t hinder it in our benchmarks below.

Image 1 of 4
Image 2 of 4
Image 3 of 4
Image 4 of 4

In Shadow of the Tomb Raider (highest settings), the top-end CPU and cutting-edge graphics card delivered good performance, but only enough pixel-pushing ability to land it just behind the similarly configured iBuypower system. The Corsair and Alienware machines with higher-end RTX s did markedly better.

On Far Cry New Dawn (ultra), the Omen managed to tie the iBuypwer PC at p (FHD) resolution, but fell further behind at 4K resolution.

On the Grand Theft Auto V benchmark (very high settings), the trend flipped again, seeing the Omen and the iBuypower tie at 4K, but the Omen fall back a bit at 4K.

And in Red Dead Redemption 2 (medium settings), the Omen again tied the iBuypower system at 4K, but fell a few frames per second (fps) behind at p.

Given the Omen’s somewhat lower-than-the-pack performance, particularly at p, as well as what we know about the high thermals of the K CPU, we suspected mm AIO wasn’t keeping the Omen’s CPU as cool as the competition. So we also subjected the HP system to our Metro Exodus gauntlet, in which we run the benchmark at the RTX preset 15 times to simulate roughly half an hour of gaming. The HP system ran the game at an average of fps, with little variation. The system started out the test at fps on the first run, dipped to fps on the fourth run and then stuck close to fps for every subsequent run.

During the Metro Exodus runs, the CPU ran at an average clock speed of GHz and an average temperature of degrees Celsius ( degrees Fahrenheit). The GPU’s average clock speed was GHz, with an average temperature of degrees Celsius ( degrees Fahrenheit).

Well, there you go. Compared to the iBuypower RDY system, which had a much larger mm AIO CPU cooler and seven fans (compared to a mm AIO and three fans in the Omen), the Omen’s CPU and GPU ran about 10 degrees Celsius hotter during our stress test. For the record, the iBuypower’s CPU ran at an average temperature of degrees Celsius, while its GPU ran at 64 degrees Celsius.

None of these temperatures are unsafe for your components, but they will lead to less-than-peak performance. HP should either offer more robust cooling for the Omen or stop selling it with the K in favor of the K, which performs basically just as well and doesn't run nearly as hot. The K also adds $ to the Omen's price.

Productivity Performance on the HP Omen 30L

With its pairing of a high-end CPU and GPU, along with 32GB of RAM and an NVMe SSD, the Omen 30L excels at productivity as well.

On Geekbench , we saw similar trends as in gaming. All the systems were close, and the single-core results saw the Omen beat the Corsair and Alienware systems slightly. But on the multi-core test, HP’s machine landed last, though not by a lot.

The Omen 30L looked good in our Handbrake test, where it tied everything else here, save for the iBuypower, which was oddly 16 seconds behind.

Lastly, the iBuypower system again lagged behind in our 25GB file transfer test. The Omen 30L and its “WD Black by Omen” drive did significantly better than the iBuypower’s MBps, delivering MBps. But both the Corsair and Alienware systems were significantly speedier on the storage front.

Software and Warranty on the HP Omen 30L

The Omen ships with quite a bit of extra software, but the company at least does a good job of making sure it doesn’t get in the way -- well, mostly. McAfee LiveSafe and Personal Security come pre-installed, but I didn’t see any pop-ups for them. There’s also HP’s Gaming Hub software, which organizes your games from different stores in one place, lets you take screenshots, control the RGB and more. There is also a suite of HP apps (Support Assistant, Smart App, PC Hardware Diagnostics, etc.) that mostly stayed out of the way. And, of course, there’s a healthy dose of Windows 10’s own cruft, like shortcuts to Netflix, Hulu, plus trials of Microsoft Office and ExpressVPN.

Despite all this, I was blissfully unaware of much of this gunk when using the system, as it mostly stayed out of sight and out of mind. But then, literally as I was checking the installed programs in writing the above paragraph, I got a notification that one of HP’s apps had updated, and a window popped up talking up Bing’s “Intelligent Search,” pre-selecting two boxes asking to change default search and the browser’s homage to Bing. Bad Omen! Bad! Bing is not your friend!

HP sells the Omen with a 1-year standard warranty.

HP Omen 30L Configurations

HP sent us a bit of an odd configuration of the Omen 30L, and it’s an even stranger time to actually buy one of these systems as we write this. From one of the base configurations that HP says starts at $2,, it’s a $ upgrade to the K, and a $ upgrade to the RTX in our rig, which gets us to $3, 

But HP also points out that there’s a similar Amazon GT configuration that’s supposed to sell on Amazon for $2, It steps the CPU down slightly to a K, (which is a better fit for the Omen’s mm AIO cooler), and halves the SSD to 1TB, while leaving other components the same. But, in the wake of Black Friday/Cyber Monday and the midst of ongoing GPU shortages, the abovementioned Amazon configuration was out of stock when we wrote this, save for one third-party seller charging a ridiculous $4,

And likewise, most of the options on HP.com were also sold out, save for a few with previous-generation Nvidia series cards and lower-end models with modest AMD RX graphics.

Once stock returns to some semblance of normal, HP says it will offer all the current-gen Nvidia cards. And at some point the company will offer AMD’s Ryzen CPUs and Radeon RX graphics as well. But the company didn’t have specifics on when the latest AMD silicon would be an option in the Omen 30L.

Price and Bottom Line for the HP Omen 30L

Image 1 of 2
Image 2 of 2

HP seems to be making a concerted effort for its Omen desktops to become more configurable than ever, with more familiar name-brand components, like Cooler Master, WD and HyperX. That makes the 30L feel more like a boutique PC, but from a big-box brand. The bad news is that stock issues and high holiday demand at the moment makes it next to impossible to tell exactly what all those options will be and what exact pricing will be like when stock is available. Much as we’ve seen with smaller boutique companies, like iBuypower, HP seems to have problems keeping recent components in stock.

That aside though, as we saw in testing, the Omen 30L needs better cooling if it wants users to get the best possible performance from the K in the system it sent us for testing. But given its similar performance and lesser thermal demands, most would be better off spending $ or so less for the K anyway.

The other ding to the Omen’s otherwise sleek hardware and software package is an abundance of bloatware. To be fair, we didn’t see a whole lot in the way of nagging popups for its excess of pre-installed software. But the one time we did, it was one of HP’s own apps sneakily pressuring us to switch our browser homepage and search engine to Bing. Given the high price of the Omen as configured, as well as the fact that most boutique PCs ship without bloatware at similar prices, HP could still learn a thing or two from its boutique competition.

That said, the Omen’s hardware, combined with the HP Omen Gaming Hub/Light Studio software, make for a package that’s at least competitive with the best that the likes of Corsair and Alienware have to offer. If you skip the unnecessary upcharge for the questionably cooled Core iK for the K, (which will perform about the same, save you $, and be easier to keep cool), the HP Omen 30L is a good option for your next high-end gaming PC -- provided you can find it in stock at a reasonable price.

EDITOR'S NOTE: The HP Omen 30L won a "highly recommended" honor for best gaming desktop at the Tom's Guide Awards for gaming.

The HP Omen 30L Gaming Desktop has one significant advantage over many of its competitors: It's quiet. It turns on with a gentle whirr, and provides ambient white noise when you're running demanding games. Compare and contrast to the jet engine sounds of other modern gaming rigs, and the Omen 30L has a lot going for it, even just as an everyday productivity machine.

And yet, once you do load up your favorite games, the Omen 30L renders them beautifully, running them in high resolutions, with fluid frame rates. Armed with an Nvidia GPU, an Intel Core i9 processor and 32 GB RAM, this machine can handle just about everything, from word-processing and music, to graphic design and video playback, to fully immersing you in demanding single- and multiplayer games.

Granted, you can't experience the Omen 30L's power if you can't find a unit. Tracking down one of these machines isn't necessarily easy, due to confusing availability and high prices. Furthermore, you'll have to uninstall a whole lot of needless bloatware, and replace the included mouse and keyboard ASAP.

Still, the Omen 30L is arguably one of the best gaming PCs, if you can get your hands on one. Read our full HP Omen 30L Gaming Desktop review for the full story.

HP Omen 30L Gaming Desktop review: Price and availability

The HP Omen 30L — like a lot of machines with Nvidia GeForce RTX series GPUs — isn't easy to get ahold of right now. And if you can find one, it's not cheap.

The least expensive Omen 30L model on HP's website is the GTxt model. This costs $2, and comes with an Intel Core iK CPU, an Nvidia GeForce RTX Super GPU, 16 GB RAM, GB SSD + 2 TB HDD storage, and an air cooling system. This is out of stock at the time of writing.

Compare and contrast to the most expensive model: the Omen 30L GTt, which starts at $3, That will get you an Intel Core iK CPU, an Nvidia GeForce RTX GPU, 16 GB RAM, GB SSD + 2 TB HDD storage and a liquid cooling system. This model is in-stock — possibly because of its high asking price.

Our review model was the GT, which is somewhere in the middle. It's not currently available anywhere at MSRP, although an Amazon listing pegs it at $3, This model comes equipped with an Intel Core iK CPU, an Nvidia GeForce RTX GPU, 32 GB RAM, 2 TB SSD + 2 TB HDD storage and a liquid cooling system. It's an incredibly powerful machine, and given the high demand for GPUs, we're not surprised it's sold out at the moment.

HP Omen 30L Gaming Desktop review: Design

The HP Omen 30L Gaming Desktop is a gorgeous machine. It might actually be the best-looking gaming desktop I've ever reviewed, combining a sturdy black chassis, a striking front design and a handsome glass side panel. The front of the machine has a glass face with a colored LED diamond, and colored LED fan lighting; the side of the machine lets you see the gorgeous RGB components within. There are plenty of holes for ventilation on the sides, and they look like artistic choices rather than mechanical necessities.

The device isn't obnoxiously large or heavy, either: x x inches, and pounds. This machine could probably live on top of a sturdy desk, although I kept our review unit on the floor with no ill effect (as is the case with many of the best gaming desks). Neither boring nor overdesigned, the Omen 30L illustrates that gaming desktops can look downright elegant with the right aesthetics.

HP Omen 30L Gaming Desktop review: Ports and upgradability

There are plenty of ports on the HP Omen 30L Gaming Desktop. Whether they're the ports you need, where you need them, is another matter. On the front of the machine, you get two USB-A ports, a mm headphone jack, a mm mic jack and an SD card reader. You might notice that there's no USB-C port in the front; I certainly did. It's a strange, inconvenient oversight in what is otherwise such a powerful device.

Granted, you do get a single USB-C port on the back, along with five more USB-A ports, an Ethernet port and a handful of mm audio ports. You'll also get DisplayPort and HDMI options, depending on your GPU. There's no optical audio port, which may come as a disappointment to audiophiles. Check out our picks for the best gaming headsets that will work with the Omen.

The inclusion of only a single USB-C port — on the back of the machine, no less — feels at-odds with the Omen 30L's state-of-the-art components. Many gaming peripherals (not to mention phones) have embraced USB-C connectivity, and that's not likely to change within the next few years. I can't imagine that the majority of gamers would rather have a front-facing SD card reader.

On the other hand, it's not too difficult to upgrade the Omen 30L. You can remove the side panel without using tools, and the layout inside is both spacious and clean.

HP Omen 30L Gaming Desktop review: Gaming performance

The HP Omen 30L Gaming Desktop delivers the kind of performance you'd expect from a PC with an Intel Core i9 processor and a GeForce RTX GPU. In the following chart, we've compared the Omen 30L to both the Dell XPS and the Corsair Vengeance i. They're both powerful gaming desktops that can — but don't have to — cross the affordability threshold. The chart measures frame rates in frames per second, at both p and 4K resolutions, with game settings turned up to Ultra.

HP Omen 30LDell XPS Corsair Vengeance i
Assassin's Creed Valhalla81 / 5183 / 4698 / 55
Grand Theft Auto V / 54 / 42 / 56
Metro Exodus / 6499 / 49 / 68
Shadow of the Tomb Raider / 56 / 41 / 59

The results are pretty clear across the board. The HP Omen 30L performed better than the XPS , but not as well as the Corsair Vengeance i In the case of the Dell, this makes sense, as that machine has an RTX GPU rather than an RTX It's interesting that the Vengeance i performs better, however. While both systems have RTX GPUs, the Vengeance i actually has a less powerful processor.

There are some significant differences in p performance between the Omen 30L and the Vengeance i; almost 20 fps in Assassin's Creed, and more than 10 in GTAV. The 4K performance between the two is comparable, however, so bear that in mind if you plan to play in UHD.

Qualitatively speaking, the Omen 30L runs games beautifully. I tested the machine with Age of Empires III: Definitive Edition, Doom Eternal, Baldur's Gate III and Final Fantasy XIV. Even with the graphics cranked up to Ultra on a QHD monitor, frame rates usually exceeded 60 fps, and the games themselves looked phenomenal. The Omen 30L can handle any PC game on the market with ease, and the outlook for the next few years looks good as well.

It's worth noting that if you want to expand your storage options, HP will offer you HDD space by default. You may want to simply install your own SSD instead; the difference in load times is considerable.

HP Omen 30L Gaming Desktop review: Overall performance

When it comes to everyday productivity, the HP Omen 30L Gaming Desktop is no slouch, either. Running all of my everyday programs at full tilt (word processor, music player, chat programs, e-mail client, etc.), I used about one-third of the system's memory and less than 10% of the CPU. As with most gaming desktops, office work can do very little to faze the Omen 30L.

Likewise, the Omen 30L actually performs better than the XPS and the Vengeance i in certain productivity metrics. It can copy over 25 GB of media from a thumb drive at a rate of 1, MBps. Compare and contrast to the XPS at MBps or the Vengeance i at MBps.

In terms of raw artificial metrics, the Omen 30L scored an 11, on the Geekbench benchmarking test. We have not yet used Geekbench to benchmark other gaming PCs, so it's difficult to say how the Omen 30L stacks up against competitors. In a vacuum, it's a high score, however. Everyday productivity machines can score around 1,, as a point of comparison.

As mentioned above, the Omen 30L's liquid cooling system is a thing of beauty, keeping the GPU cool (up to 35 degrees Celsius for productivity; up to 80 degrees Celsius for gaming) and the system very quiet.

However, there are two components of the Omen 30L that will hamper your workflow, and those are the included mouse and keyboard. The HP USB Wired Keyboard and the HP USB Wired Mouse are, without a doubt, the worst pack-in peripherals I have ever tested, and I cannot recommend them, even just as a stopgap while you pick out better accessories.

Image 2 of 2

The keyboard has an extremely low profile and shallow key travel, with little space between the keys and a design that puts the vital F and J keys slightly off-center. The mouse is likewise extremely low to the ground, and has a tiny, inefficient scroll wheel. These are not good gaming gadgets; they're not even good productivity gadgets. HP actually makes a handful of decent gaming accessories, and I cannot fathom why it didn't include some of those.

HP Omen 30L Gaming Desktop review: Software

Another area where the HP Omen 30L Gaming Desktop falls short is in its included software package. There's a fair amount of preinstalled software, and none of it is really useful. There's an audio manager, which is no better than the regular Windows sound system. There's the HP JumpStarts program, which seems like a whole lot of ads on top of a serial number, and not much else. The Omen Gaming Hub controls the PC's lighting, which is useful — but it also delivers ads, and offers to manage your games in ways that the Nvidia GeForce Experience software already does better.

The real bugbear, however, is the preinstalled McAfee Antivirus. I've written before about how McAfee eats up system resources, while false-flagging game files and forcing you to run the program at all times. Uninstall it and use Windows Defender instead; you and your PC will both be happier. Better yet: As soon as you get the Omen 30L, just wipe it clean and install a fresh copy of Windows You can download the Omen software to manage lighting separately.

HP Omen 30L Gaming Desktop review: Verdict

In spite of some questionable accessories and software, the HP Omen 30L Gaming Desktop is a thing of beauty. It's elegant, quiet and powerful. It's also extremely expensive, and it can be pretty confusing to buy the right one, so be prepared to do a little research if it sounds like the gaming rig for you.

The Corsair Vengeance i is arguably a more powerful machine in the same general price range, and that's also quite a pretty machine. But the Vengeance is also slightly larger and bulkier, and there's nothing wrong with wanting to save a little space on top of your desk — or underneath it.

Our Verdict

The HP Omen 30L fits in some high-end hardware into a bit of a tight space. It keeps the performance up, but doesn’t have many options for improving thermals beyond increasing the noise if they start to become a problem.

For

  • Elegant looks
  • Fair pricing
  • Standardized parts

Against

  • Limited cooling options
  • No front USB-C

Two-minute review

The HP Omen 30L is a slightly slim beast of a gaming PC that can pack some seriously fast components into a narrow and elegant chassis that shows them off. This gaming PC comes in a variety of configurations that don’t come cheap but do offer a fair value. The HP Omen 30L line starts at $1, for a modest 11th Gen Core i7/RTX Ti model and jumps up to $2, for a model that squeezes in an RTX . Configuration options also allow for a lot more granular control over the hardware included and therefore the final price.

SPEC SHEET

Here is the HP Omen 30L configuration sent to TechRadar for review:
CPU: Intel Core iK (GHz base, GHz boost, 20MB cache)
Graphics: Nvidia GeForce RTX
RAM: 4 x 8GB HyperX Fury DDR4 @ 3,MHz
Motherboard: Intel Z
Power Supply: Cooler Master W 80 Plus Platinum
Storage: 2TB WD_Black PCIe NVMe SSD ; 2TB Seagate Barracuda HDD (7,RPM)
Ports (front): 2 x USB-A Gen1; 1 x mm combo; 1 x mm mic
Ports (rear): 3 x DisplayPort, 1 x HDMI, 1 x LAN, 1 x USB-C Gen2, 2 x USB Gen2, 2 USB Gen1, 2 x USB , 1 x Audio out, 1 x Audio in, 1 x Mic
Connectivity: Gigabit Ethernet, Wi-Fi 6 2x2, Bluetooth

Curiously, our exact test configuration isn’t one HP appears to make available even through customization, but the closest configuration to our test unit comes with an Intel Core iK and an RTX alongside ample storage and RAM for $2, (about £1,, AU$2,). That’s a fairly compelling price when compared to another powerful option like the $2, (about £2,, AU$3,) Alienware Aurora R10 Ryzen Edition with a similar storage and RAM configuration alongside an RTX and Ryzen 9  

And, given issues with graphics card availability, it could be hard to build your own comparable system for less. HP also manages to stay below the prices of more boutique-style builds like the  iCUE Infinity Gaming PC, which starts at roughly $2, (£1,, AU$3,) for a model that has a 10th-Gen Core i7, half the RAM, and a RTX instead of a

The HP Omen 30L has a stylish look to it. From the front, it has the cold feeling with a semi-transparent tempered glass panel that shows off the HP Omen logo at the top and a single ring light on the front intake fan near the bottom. Coming around the side of the HP Omen 30L, you get to see the interior lit by internal RGB lighting. Our test model also includes RGB memory modules to really keep the light-show going.

There’s a decent smattering of ports available on the computer, including two USB-A ports on the front of the case alongside a combo headset jack and a dedicated mic-in port. Unfortunately, there’s no USB-C port on the front of the case. We also notice a hint of noise in the signal to the headset port on the front, with a faint static always present and a hiss that links perfectly to our mouse movements (tested both with our wireless mouse’s receiver inserted in a USB port next to the headset jack and connected to a USB on our monitor). Thankfully, the noise level is low enough to easily be drowned out.

HP touts this as its “most customizable gaming PC [it’s] ever made,” and it offers tool-less access through the removable glass side panel. But taking a look inside, this doesn’t look like a PC that’s easy to do much customization with. To start, there’s not a lot of extra, unoccupied space, especially when it comes to custom cooling. There’s only one fan slot at the front and top of the case, and the rear exhaust slot only has space for a single small fan (90mm, from the looks of it). The hard drive cage is also squeezed in at the front of the case. A standardized motherboard and power supply may be the main components allowing some customization. But even that motherboard lacks extra PCIe slots for expansion cards beyond the installed graphics card.

BENCHMARKS

Here's how the HP Omen 30L performed in our suite of benchmark tests:

3DMark: Night Raid: 66,; Fire Strike: 30,; Time Spy: 16,
Cinebench R23 Multi-core:14, points
GeekBench 5: 1, (single-core); 11, (multi-core)
PCMark 10 (Home Test): 7, points
Total War: Three Kingdoms (p, Ultra): fps; (p, Low): fps
Metro Exodus (p, Ultra): fps; (p, Low): fps; (p, RTX): fps

Fortunately, there’s plenty of performance available from the HP Omen 30L without going deep into after-market customization. In our regular suite of benchmarks, the HP Omen 30L performs in line with what we’d expect from its components. With settings dialed down, it can offer blistering speeds at p, and it can keep cruising even at p with Ultra settings even in demanding games like Metro Exodus. We even see it deliver over fps on average in Metro Exodus with its RTX setting in benchmarks. That said, for p gaming, it’s important to dial up graphics settings in order to get the most out of this type of configuration, as we’ve seen the Alienware Aurora R10 Ryzen Edition speed ahead even with its Radeon RX XT when the graphics card isn’t doing the brunt of the work.

Playing through some casual CS:GO, we generally see the fps counter clocking in over without the system resource monitor even showing the CPU or GPU at close to % utilization. Throughout our testing of Cyberpunk at p with graphics all dialed up and RTX enabled, the HP Omen 30L maintains a steady framerate often close to 90fps with occasional dips to around 70fps, but never noticeably lower than that. 

We were a little worried about cooling performance. The single intake fan is doing some heavy lifting given the components inside, and the core CPU is cooled only by a mm radiator. Though the liquid cooling system for the CPU regularly turns into a jet engine noise-wise, the system holds up its performance even through extended play sessions. Our PCMark 10 test also sees the processor hold a sustained boost clock around GHz and keep thermals steady . That said, we tested in a controlled environment, and it could start to struggle in a hot room. We also notice what seems like coil whine, but really only when the system is spitting out , frames per second, as it does in the 3DMark Night Raid benchmark.

Buy it if…

You want your money’s worth
The HP Omen 30L is offering a fair value for the components it includes, particularly with respect to the processor and graphics card. Given the graphics card shortage, it’d be hard to build a similar system for a similar price.

You prefer a subtler design
The HP Omen 30L does have a bit of flair with a few RGB zones, but it’s not the most ostentatious case nor is it a desk-dominating size.

You want to be able to swap components
HP has used standardized components, so you’ll be able to swap motherboards, power supplies, and the like to keep your rig alive through the years.

Don’t buy it if…

You hate fan noise
The HP Omen 30L is generally quiet in casual use, but when the CPU starts to feel the heat, the single fan of the mm radiator kicks up a serious racket as loud as a box fan.

You love toying around with cooling
There are just not a lot of slots to put fans or radiators on the case of the HP Omen 30L, so for all that you can customize, the cooling will likely always end up the same.

You like over-the-top style
Even the logo for the HP Omen brand is simple, so it should be no surprise that the case follows in that line. You do get a bit of RGB, at least.
