    nevermind, I just read on battery university website that lithium batteries normally discharge 5% in 24 hours, and then slowly discharge after that.
  4. what is causing battery to discharge 5% while plugged in?

    It actually loses 5% pretty fast while remaining plugged in. I would estimate it takes a day to lose 5% while...

    That's just Amazon misadvertising. Not Asus. Amazon is the seller.

    95C is normal.

    As long as it doesn't throttle, you're doing ok.

    CPU can run 99C all day long, and you're not even there yet.
