How to Customise RGB Lighting with OMEN Gaming Hub

Jamie Finch
Red, green and blue (RGB) lighting is found on many gaming machines and peripherals and the results can be visually stunning regardless of your budget. Perhaps even better is that you can use platforms like the OMEN Gaming Hub to adjust your RGB lighting according to your preferences.
This article looks into how you can use the OMEN Gaming Hub to customise your lights, and some of the other features the platform offers. But first here’s a closer look at how RGB lighting can enhance your gaming experience.

Impressive aesthetics

Gaming PCs tend to be colourful, with RGB lighting often found inside and outside. Many even come with clear plastic or glass sides that let you see the components inside. The colours can contribute to some stunning results, impressive enough to make a machine appealing regardless of functionality.
For example, the OMEN 40L (GT21-1004na) Gaming PC is an impressive machine to look at. And while this machine looks the part, it also offers plenty of gaming power with help from the Intel® Core™ i7 processor. You can also choose between 16GB or 32GB of RAM, and 1TB or 2TB solid-state drive (SSD) storage. SSD storage enhances your machine's performance over hard disk drives (HDD) thanks to its superior read and write speeds.

This gaming PC with RGB lights offers impressive graphics with help from an NVIDIA® GeForce RTX™ 4070 Ti (12GB) or an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4080 (16GB) graphics processor unit (GPU). This rig also comes with DTS:X® Ultra Technology, meaning you get quality audio that adds to the immersive experience.
The OMEN 40L (GT21-1004na) also comes with an OMEN Cryo Chamber that helps keep your machine cool. This chamber includes the use of an external radiator in a gap near the top of the unit that gives access to fresh, cool air. The radiator lets the internal cooling liquid shed heat, sending cool water back into the system to absorb heat produced by different components.
Not only is this method effective but liquid cooling is also quiet, unlike some machines that can become noisy under heavy loads. You can also use the chamber as a hand-hold when moving your machine. Another convenient feature is the tool-less design which makes it easier to upgrade and maintain your rig.
As with most HP products, this computer is also made with sustainability in mind. For example, some parts are made from recycled materials and we use environmentally friendly paints where possible.

Practical benefits

RGB lighting can result in some impressive aesthetics but the lighting also has some practical benefits. For example, the HyperX Alloy Origins Mechanical Gaming Keyboard has an RGB backlit keyboard that lets you play in dark conditions.

This gaming keyboard is also appealing because of its HyperX mechanical switches that offer short travel and fast response times. The body is made from aircraft-grade aluminium for a stable keyboard and adds durability and longevity, making it more cost-efficient.
This keyboard has a compact design and comes with a detachable USB cable. Onboard memory lets you store three settings profiles, and you can set the keyboard at three adjustable angles to help you get comfortable.

How RGB lighting can enhance the gaming experience

As mentioned, RGB lighting lets gamers play in dark conditions, while it also offers other benefits. For example, the OMEN 17 Gaming Laptop (17-ck2002na) lets you create different coloured zones on your keyboard. Zoning your keyboard in this way will make it easier to find the right keys under pressure.

This laptop lets you choose between an Intel Core i7 or i9 CPU. You can also choose between an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4080 (12GB) card or an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4080 (12GB). You also have a choice between 1TB or 2TB SSD storage.
The 17.3-inch Quad High Definition (QHD) display offers bright and smooth images and flicker-free technology helps to ensure comfortable viewing. Eyesafe®-Certified Display also helps by reducing blue light levels, and the anti-glare display keeps you comfortable during long sessions.
The OMEN 17 Gaming Laptop will also run cool and quiet thanks to Tempest Cooling Technology. This feature uses sensors to read the performance of your CPU and GPU and allocate power accordingly.
This model also comes with an HP Wide Vision HD Camera and impressive, immersive audio thanks to dual speakers tuned to perfection by Bang & Olufsen. The keyboard is comfortable to use and the HP Imagepad with multi-gesture support can enhance your gameplay.


As we mentioned previously, many peripherals also benefit from RGB lighting, such as the HyperX QuadCast USB Microphone. One of this mic’s key RGB benefits is that the lighting tells you whether your mic is mute or live.
This mic is ideal for gamers and streamers in particular because it ensures your teammates and viewers can hear you clearly while maintaining security. For example, you only need to tap the mic and it will mute automatically.

Other features include a built-in pop filter for smooth audio and a built-in anti-vibration shock mount. A conveniently located dial at the base of the mic also lets you adjust the volume quickly. This mic is compatible with a wide range of devices including computers and game consoles.
A gaming mouse is another essential item for most gamers, and the HyperX Pulsefire Haste can help enhance your gameplay thanks to its highly responsive performance. This impressive performance comes thanks to the TTC Golden micro dustproof switches that register your clicks almost instantly, allowing lightning reactions. Another benefit of using these switches is that they are durable enough to withstand the rough treatment they often receive from gamers.

This mouse is also comfortable during long sessions thanks to its ultra-light hex shell design. 100% PTFE skates ensure your mouse glides smoothly over your mat, and grip tap gives you more control. The HyperFlex USB Cable is light and flexible and a split button design helps improve responsiveness, while the Pixart 3335 sensor enables fluid and accurate tracking.
The HyperX Pulsefire Haste also offers customisable RGB lighting that offers practicality in addition to great looks. You can also customise buttons according to your preferences.

Customising your RGB lighting with the OMEN Gaming Hub

Many peripherals will come with dedicated software that will let you customise your RGB lights for optimal gaming setup. Such software is usually straightforward to use and comes with a range of other useful features. However, such software can usually only let you customise one device, potentially making it difficult to get our setup as you want it.
A popular alternative to software dedicated to specific devices is the OMEN Gaming Hub, which will let you customise any compatible device from the same place. It’s not necessary to have an OMEN device to use the gaming hub, but the range comes widely recommended to gamers and having compatible peripherals will enhance your gaming experience.
The hub also provides a single location from which to access your games, while it will also help optimise your machine for the best performance. A dashboard gives you information on your computer’s components and performance, while the OMEN Gaming Hub will also optimise your network settings for a fast and reliable internet connection.
To customise your lighting with the OMEN Gaming Hub, you should go to the Light Studio section from the menu on the left. You should then see a range of compatible items and a variety of options letting you adjust the colours.

Where to find compatible devices?

You will find a list of devices compatible with the OMEN Gaming Hub here. While the list includes HP devices, it also includes a selection of quality 3rd party devices that will help enhance your gaming experience. Once installed, the hub will automatically detect any compatible devices and let you customise them with the Light Studio.


Overall, the OMEN Gaming Hub can enhance your experience from stunning aesthetics to helping you find the right key in the heat of the action. You can also import and export profiles, and save colour schemes for quick changes as you wish.
The hub also offers a range of other features that improve your experience and provides a single location from which you can access all of your games. In addition to the benefits of customising your RGB lighting, this platform will also help your machine run games smoothly.
The OMEN Gaming Hub is also free to download and install regardless of which computer you are using. Even if you don’t have access to the RGB adjustment features, you will still benefit from other features such as optimising your machine for gaming.
