What does it provide?Speccy gives you a birds-eye view of your computer.The summary page tells which edition of Windows 10 you have, your very specific CPU information, what RAM you have in your system and how much is available, along with memory speeds, your motherboard, graphics, storage and more.Temperature readoutsFor an underperforming machine, Speccy gives you temperature readouts for each component that has a thermometer. This can be useful in several scenarios, such as your computer suddenly turning off. You can check your CPU, hard drive and graphics card temperatures if equipped.A few years back, my desktop computer’s graphics card overheated. By using this software and cleaning up the cards’ built-in onboard fan, I was able to restore my computer to optimal heat levels.Operating systemsAnother place to find helpful information is when you break it down to the specific areas. For this, I used the Operating System tab, where you can discover information such as the security settings, Windows Update, whether you have a firewall or antivirus installed. If you’re on a laptop, you can find out the status of its battery and power profiles.MotherboardsAnother useful tool in Speccy is finding out what motherboard you have to do upgrades with compatible parts. If you’re a custom PC builder, more often than not you’ve lost the book for your motherboard, and tearing apart the system to find out the specific model isn’t something you want to tackle.
Note: This download is for PCs only.I recommend using Speccy for general information on your PC, troubleshooting and upgrade purposes. This application also has features to export data to send for IT purposes.It gives you a great look at all the components and information that make up your personal computer so you don’t have to needlessly crawl on the floor until it’s certain you really need to. The lightweight and simple interface just makes it that much nicer to use.
