You shouldn't need to set the CPU maximum to anything other than 100%
There is a HP App preinstalled that has cooling profiles and coolsense. Set it to the quiet profile and it should cool passively by throttling the CPU and GPU.
So I have the Envy Ryzen x360 and just can't get the fans to idle even with one tab open in Chrome. I've already set the power mode to passive and max CPU to 90%, anything else I can do? Cheers
My wife's Envy x369 is a very decent machine at the price she paid. £675 with student discount. Ryzen CPU and Vega graphics. You just need to set the fan profile to quiet. Decent keyboard too.
I have this and I don't like it that much. I don't like the keyboard, the mouse pad is way too wide and the stylus doesn't work that well. Also it's not that fast. The screen does looks great in 4K and the touch screen can be useful.
