I'd go with HP Omen. It's pretty much all covered in vents.

If you are capable enough to use the internet and create a forum account, you are more than capable to do the research on your own.

"Modified". Two small wooden wedges 1-1,5 cm tall on both sides will improve airflow and enable better cooling, unless you are one of those who keep laptop on their bed, on the pillow or other improper places.

Could somebody explore for me which of these two laptops has better cooling please:
What exactly are you interested in?
In desktops "better cooling" is about pushing heat from the source. Easy.
In laptops it's also important how/where the heat exits. It's way more complicated (and subjective).
For example: you usually don't want the keyboard to get too hot.
If you plan to actually use the laptop on on top of your lap (or on bed or other soft surfaces), you might not want vents on the bottom.
Some people look for laptops that don't exhaust hot air on their mouse side (so usually right).

Here's a test of HP made by people who specialize in laptops:
https://www.notebookcheck.net/HP-Omen-17t-i7-8750H-GTX-1070-Laptop-Review.323450.0.html
There's a very precise check of what happens with the keyboard and the bottom. I've seen better results but this is far from bad.

Here's a review of ASUS by people who don't specialize in laptops:
https://www.eteknix.com/asus-rog-gl703g-144hz-g-sync-gaming-laptop-review/7/
They only checked the CPU and GPU temps.
I haven't found any decent review of the particular ASUS laptop you're thinking about. Here's a similar one (1060 instead of 1070)
https://www.notebookcheck.net/Asus-...X-1060-FHD-120-Hz-Laptop-Review.309052.0.html
Middle of keyboard reached 53*C during gaming. IMO that's unacceptable.
If you are capable enough to use the internet and create a forum account, you are more than capable to do the research on your own.
But then what's the point of joining a community forum like this one?
Giving "likes" or "dislikes" to people depending on CPU/GPU brand they prefer?

For me it depends on how many fans are in there and how thick the laptop is. Safest bet today is get a external cooler, as most arent built like they were in 2004

TBH all of my threads I created are to help me decide to buy a gaming laptop.

After you told me that the i7-8750H is a good CPU ,I am in a big doubt in buying between these two gaming laptops:

HP OMEN 17.3", i7-8750H, 16GB/256GB SSD 1TB HDD, GTX1070 (8GB4RF81EA)

and

ASUS GL703GS-E5011 - Intel Core i7-8750H (2.2 GHz, 9M Cache, up to 4.1 GHz), 16GB DDR4 (1 mem.slot free), 256GB PCIE G3X4 SSD + 1TB 5400 rpm SSHD(8 GB cache)

But I don't know which one is better,has less known issues,better cooling, so I would please you to help me.

I would be very grateful.
