  1. Hi guys Id like to ask you if you know any programs that do the following:

    Checking for Hardware failures in:

    RAM
    CPU
    PSU
    GPU

    etc...?

    Id like to make sure my PC is healthy, without problems that can damage it and its lifespan.

    Thanks in advance :)

    I've added recommendations to your list but generally speaking if you are running stock configuration and speeds for CPU and GPU then you don't really need to use these programs as a health check. They are more for monitoring stability when overclocking or checking devices for errors when you are encountering problems with your machine.

    Alrighty, thanks! :p What about HDD checks?

    Payed programs can be included :)
     
  4. I find HD Tune works well. HDDlife might be worth a look in.
