How can I upgrade gcc to 5.1.0 on MinGW which currently has 4.8(on windows)

I have installed MinGW which comes bundled with gcc 4.8 and its working fine.
I downloaded gcc-5.1.0.tar from the gnu gcc website
I am absolutely not able to follow their instruction on building gcc 5.1.0 from source. Its too complicated for a novice
I currently have MinGW installed on C:MinGW

A detailed instruction on building the latest version, installing it and using it would be helpful. Thank you

P.S. – I am creating this question as I was unable to find any instructions online after desperately searching for hours. Hope it helps many
