I just got the R13 with the 3080ti. I think the thing runs pretty hot while playing games. I'm running dual 32's at 1440 and I have to turn one of the monitors off while playing to keep the GPU heat down. I kind of new this thing was probably going to run hot, but it still can be a little concerning. I try to keep my gaming sessions shorter than I would like to keep this thing from burning up. In the end I'm satisfied with my purchase because to get what I really wanted (a custom-built Nasa pc with water cooling for both the cpu & gpu) would have cost me at least $2k more than what I paid for the R13.
