    Hi guys. what's a r2 13 965m normal gaming temperature? (I7-6500u).

    It went just under 87 degrees c when I briefly ran furmark. Looked up the service manuel - really not keen to repaste it if I can help it (repaste 17 R1 and R2 recently). So complicated to open it seems.

    Thanks,

    Never use furmark. Its really bad for any gpu. But under 85c should be fine.

    Thanks - looked on the base after the initial post and saw some dust through the fan - have repasted with AS5 (run out of Gelid paste unfortunately). Temp slightly better than before (AS5 might need some curing time I think). Just noticed the fan rattles slightly when it's not flat. Guess will have to live with it.

    Hi guys, quick question.
    Is the only glass screen on the AW 13 R1/R2 the QHD OLED? Or is there another full hd glass one too?

    So while cleaning my laptop, I noticed my battery's packs (there are two of them) looked a bit bulgier than usual and were uneven in size (but not by much). It is 100% charged, but I've never seen it like that or on my 13 R1. Could something be wrong with it?

    Is it manufactured by Simplo? If so, it can form a bulge if used extensively.
    If you use it on battery mode, it might cause the palm rest portion to be very warm than usual then don't wait until battery is dead, simply replace it. I prefer Panasonic,Sanyo or Samsung cells. My 15 r2 replacement battery has Sanyo which is much better than Simplo.
    I do have a Lenovo low end lappie with simplo but it didn't have a bulge or any issues I had with AW Echo models.
