    Nope, has not been as issue for me. Can you tell us more? What apps are you running when it overheats? Do you you have anything unusual running in the background perhaps? What anti-virus are you running? Have you made ANY other changes since installing the new bios?

    How can you tell if it overheats?

    If it doesn't malfunction, it's probably fine. Mine gets warm on the right side too. Mine seems to be warmer on the bottom than the top. I don't know if it started with bios 2.20 because I upgraded the bios within half hour of receiving it.

    How is your battery life now? Also how is it in sleep mode? I noticed both go down, but in part due to the display coming back on when closed. Even when the display was not on battery bleed in sleep mode increased. I had a relatively good sample to compare:

    Best Buy 32GB = 2.14 and no issues for almost month I had it.

    Walmart 64GB = Ditto for the eight days with that.

    MS Store 64GB (Cyber sale) = Ditto until updating to 2.20. The luster of the T100 was tarnished for me with 2.20.

    No offense to the OP, but why would you call this "overheating"? This term is typically applied to a situation that results in the device taking some protective action, e.g. shutting down to protect damage. What you describe is clearly not that. It's best if we try not to dramatize things- keep it objective and useful.

    Indeed. -Any- device that uses passive OR active cooling, will heat when stressed. You just notice it more when passive cooling.

    It will shut itself down if it overheats, to prevent any damage. Our processors are designed to function at up to 90 degrees C before that happens (that's 194 degrees F!) If your processor is running anywhere NEAR that temperature in a tablet like this, you'd know, trust me. It would be HOT to the touch! Im runnibg the 220 firmware as well and my T100 has never even gotten warm to the touch. Though i don't play games, but streaming video and especially Flash would warm it up if anything would, and i do pkenty of that.

    There is an app called CPU-z I believe that you can install that will tell your CPU temps in real time. Unless you T100 is running at 70-80c even under light load, thwn you have nothing to worry about. I haven't checked mine yet, but based on past experiences and the fact that mine stays cool to the touch, i'd say its probably running at around 55c or below.

    I think the point of the OP it seems to runs warmer since 2.20. I found 2.20 to be an overall negative compared to 2.14 and had several to compare.
