5 Unless you're a hardcore overclocker, there's really no reason to bother with it, especially not today with modern hardware that's running cool with pretty weak cooling to begin with. :)

10 No matter how old or new your disk is, keep your backups current and in working shape.
12 If it's old, I would just keep an extra eye on the S.M.A.R.T. status and replace it when it's getting close to dying. If you're lucky it will last you for a long time and if you're unlucky it could die any day, which is also to true for any disk.

15 >drive. I hadn't heard of M.2 yet when I bought it...
17 A SSD is just fine. You're not gaining any performance with a M.2 disk anyway.
