  1. Successor to Everast Ultimate.

    What do you guys use that may be better? Possibly free?
    Willing to pay a little for software similuar to this, but want to make sure I get the best, or decent.

    Please give me your opinions.

    Thanks for your input. I like the portable version for this.. took a look around and realized I have a 19% overclock running on my computer. Too easy to overclock these days. lol

    More system info

    Yes I have used Everest, Aida, also 'Speccy' by Piriform is new, but you might have a look at
    It does a hardware and software audit, then opens up your web browser to show the results. They all have advantages, but if you just want a very simple look at your PC, then try CPUZ and the graphic card version, GPUZ . Both portable, handy to keep on a flash stick, to see what other PC's really are made up of !

    Thanks for more recommendations. I have tried the CPU-Z, but unaware of GPU-Z.

    How about anything that provides build-in benchmark, stability tests, and "what have you's". I'd guess we start getting into the paid versions of software at that point.

    There is a short list of software on this page, The program 'prime95' is a stress tester and will show up faults in an overclocked pc. Of course Passmark will do a great deal, but it costs money. I have used software from this site, which is useful, but it concentrates on one item to test at a time. It's possible they may add a more 'all round' benchmarker in the future.
