comment Water cooling a PC, is it really expensive?
@LorenPechtel, I'm not sure either. I really think it's a decent answer, right up the OP's alley. I use the self-contained units on all my computers now. Simple, silent, and cheap. What was an 80C mild OC'd Core i7 rarely goes above 45C now.

comment Why has my Mac become so slow? (And how do I start to answer that?)
Disks often come from the factory with bad sectors, going off the raw value isn't a positive sign that it's going bad, having it go passed the threshold is.

@Pascal, oops. I must have glazed over it and read it as 32-bit. Even so, I think I'm out of my league.

What about downloading the newer version of gcc (or the source) and installing it as a use in your home directory (if you have one)? Well, how big is this program?

Yes, and there was a time where processors were sold that were identical, save for the speed locked into them at the factory, and the price. I don't know if this still applies.
