HP offers players who swear by the desktop PC a new Omen tower which comes in two sizes and which has a very large selection of handpicked components.
Do you prefer your Omen PC in 25 liters or 30 liters? The latest gaming desktop computer from HP is powerful, bright but above all it can be more or less deep depending on the contingencies imposed by your playing space.
The Omen 25L and the Omen 30L don’t have quite the same front either, so you can tell them apart at first glance. The 25L is available in two sub-models, one with a steel door, the other with a tempered glass wall so that you can see its insides (see below).
The 30L model – the deepest – has a tempered glass panel as standard, as well as a luminous fan on the front. It is clearly visible because protected by another large piece of tinted glass, very fashionable.
If these boxes do not have quite the same features, they do have one thing in common: state-of-the-art components from Intel, AMD, Nvidia and even Western Digital roar inside the cabin.
For the moment, we do not yet have the prices and the French availability of the Omen 25L and 30L. In the United States, they will be marketed during the week of May 4, starting at $ 900 for the 25L and $ 1,200 for the 30L.
Prestigious alliances to convince gamers
Intel’s latest 10th generation processors, the Comet Lake-S, are a la carte, as is AMD Ryzen 7 and 9 generation 3000. They can be cooled either with a conventional air cooler or a watercooling device.
GPU side, Nvidia RTX 2000 or Radeon RX 5000, you choose according to your needs. Because even if HP does not offer a configurator on its site as Dell can do for example, the American will multiply the configurations so that all gamers find a tower suited to their requirements … and their finances.

To convince the demanding public of gaming, HP is multiplying partnerships and announces that it will supply DDR4-3200 memory from HyperX (Kingson group) and that the modules can be RGB depending on the Omen references.
For the SSD in NVMe, Samsung gives way to Western Digital. These are Black (high performance) solutions that are present in HP towers. Their capacity can go up to 2 TB. Classic hard drives will also be WD models, however we have no information on their category.
For power, the Cooler Master blocks take place at the bottom of the case to offer up to 750 watts of electrical power. Enough to see coming and make some future developments.
Designed to evolve
HP specifies that all the components as well as the boxes are all standard format to allow greater scalability of the machine over time. And to avoid the case becoming a limiting factor, HP has optimized it from floor to ceiling.
Its feet are high to improve the intake of fresh air from under the machine. On the 30L model, the graphics card is located right at the fan to respond, again, to cooling contingencies. A dust filter is also added under the housing of the 30L version. The 25L case, for its part, opted for an optimized internal organization, but probably not as advanced as that of its big brother.
