HP OMEN 25L GT12-0225qd Review: A Look at This Newly-Designed Gaming Computer, Its HyperX Memory, & More

HP is redesigning its new gaming desktops with the new OMEN 25L -30L models. The names literally refer to the amount of liters that each chassis holds. In addition to size, the only other difference between the two is that the 30L has more room for cooling. If you don’t have much space to hold a tower and don’t mind a little less cooling with your computer tower, then the HP OMEN 25L GT12-0225qd model is obviously the better choice.

You really get some impressive specs as well considering that this computer is under $1,000 (starting configuration). It’s just been released this past May, and it’s already getting a lot of positive reviews. Hook it up to your favorite monitor and get up to a quad HD resolution (2560 x 1440) and 350-nits of brightness. The tower itself is constructed with a full-metal frame, features a tempered glass side panel, and offers users complete RGB control.

HP OMEN 25L GT12-0225qd Dimensions and Ports

There are feet that raise the chassis a bit off the ground in order to allow for better intake so that the system will be able to stay cool. The overall dimensions of the HP OMEN 25L GT12-0225qd tower are 6.5-in x 15.53-in x 17.05-in and the weight is around 25.25 lbs.

It has several USB ports, including SuperSpeed Type-C, and Type-A which have a 10Gbps signaling rate, as well as 4 USB Type-A ports with a 5Gbps signaling rate. Additional ports / interfaces include 1 audio-in / 1 audio-out, 1 RJ-45, 1 microphone, and 1 headphone – mic combo. There is a button in the back that allows users to release one of the side panels in order to change out ports. The overall design is streamlined.

Get HyperX memory with the OMEN 25L, with the lowest option being 8GB (1 x 8GB), and the highest being HyperX 32GB (2 x 16GB) DDR4 2300 XMP RGB-SDRAM. This comes in addition with an AMD Ryzen 5 (six-cores) or 7 processor (eight-cores).

There is room for primary and secondary storage, although the second drive is unoccupied by default, unless you opt for a 1TB or 2TB SATA HDD. For the primary storage, there are various options, including 256GB up to 1TB PCIe NVMe M.2 Solid State Drive. There is also an option on the HP OMEN 25L GT12-0225qd for WD Black 1TB SSD drive (PCIe NVMe TLC M.2).
