    1GB should speed things up nicely. It may just be that your computer is having to dig into virtual memory, increasing disk utilization and as a result, generating more heat. Do you have plenty of room around your iMac to let it breathe?
    Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

    I believe is a normal fan speed for the iMac.
