comment Lower temperature thresholds for sensors
Then I'd highly suggest either taking it back to get repaired/replaced, or if you feel comfortable voiding the warranty, opening it up and checking the heatsyncs. I'd imagine there is poor contact and/or missing thermal paste if this has happened since you bought it. It should not be running at 60C+ normally.

comment Ubuntu displays Shutdown window then turns off system
Is your system shutting down immediately (like Blue-screening) or just opening up a shutdown dialog then counting down & shutting down the system? I agree with @terdon so if you can boot to a LiveCD, I'd recommend running memtest86+ for a few hours to check your RAM for errors.

comment Lower temperature thresholds for sensors
Are you sure these sensor limits are for fan speeds? I doubt that. It looks like the high and critical values for thermal protection of the system. I think there is another reason your fans aren't spinning fast enough like dust that you should examine before playing with these values. Dropping the high value down to 70C may just start processor throttling, giving you less power than you payed for. I'd check the fans, then thermal paste & heatsyncs before changing these values.

comment Building from SRPMs on CentOS 6.5
So if I run that command, yum wants to remove about 75 additional packages such as gdm, Thunar, gnome-desktop, etc. which depend on it. I'd like to have them just use the newer version but I'm not sure if that is possible.

comment Set a screen session name at the command prompt
Not an answer, but you may also want to check out tmux. It is more user friendly than screen IMO.

comment getting the message “out of partition” after installing GRUB 2. What is happening?
Was the system you DD'd from running grub2 without issues? If you list/check your partitions from the live cd, are they still the same sizes you allocated when originally installing?

comment Should I use `sudo` or `su` in a startup script?
Agreed. I was simply stating what I've seen used as convention on most Linux/Unix in the past; sudo generally for a single root based command while su more generally to execute as another user.

comment Get newest gcc for debian?
Are you looking for an alternative to downloading the gcc source files and compiling yourself, or are you ok with building the package from source?

comment i386 libtool conflicting with x86_64 libtool when installing Handbrake
What requires the i386 version of libtool? I'd recommend doing a force install of the x86_64 binary if that won't crash your system. I'm not using centos so I'm not sure of the dependencies. If your running on a VM, I'd highly recommend creating a snapshot first.
