Feature area Tool/Software/Site Description
Processor Intel® Processor Diagnostic Tool The Intel Processor Diagnostic Tool is a free application used to verify the functionality of an Intel microprocessor. The diagnostic checks for brand identification, verifies the processor operating frequency, tests specific processor features and does a stress test on the processor.
Processor Intel® Processor Identification Utility The Intel® Processor Identification Utility identifies the brand, features, package, intended frequencies, and actual operating frequencies of the processor. You can also use the utility to discern if an Intel® Processor is working above its rated frequency.
Processor PerfMonitor PerfMonitor is a processor performance monitoring tool that allows you to track the frequency of four events chosen in a set of model-specific list. It can be used to identify the performance bottlenecks of a system, or to monitor a program for cache-miss rate or mispredicted branches. PerfMonitor can also be used as a hardware-level CPU comparison tool, comparing the key parameters of different CPUs running the same benchmark.
Processor Tmonitor TMonitor displays the active clock of each individual core of the processor. A very high refresh rate (20 times per second) allows you to visualize the smallest clock variation in real time. TMonitor detects mechanisms such as Intel® Turbo Boost Technology, and allows you to clearly visualize its effect as the processor is working.
Processor, memory CPU-Z CPU-Z is a freeware application that gathers information on some of the main devices of your system.
Memory Memtest86+ A free, standalone memory testing program.
Memory Windows* Memory Diagnostic A free memory test tool provided by Microsoft*. Similar to other memory testing programs, Windows Memory Diagnostic does a series of extensive tests to see if anything is wrong with your computer memory.
Overclocking is an online community which includes forums, reviews, and articles related to overclocking.
Overclocking Overclockers is an online community that includes forums, reviews, and articles related to overclocking.
Complete system; Overclocking Prime95 Used by PC enthusiasts and overclockers as a stability testing utility.
Complete system AIDA64 A complete PC diagnostics software utility that assists you while installing, optimizing or troubleshooting your computer. The utility provides all information about your system, from hardware devices and installed drivers, to operating system security and stability metrics.
Complete system PC Wizard 2010 A utility designed for detection of hardware, it also analyzes and benchmarks hardware: CPU performance, cache performance, RAM performance, hard disk performance, CD/DVD-ROM performance, removable/flash media performance, video performance, and MP3 compression performance.
Complete system HWMonitor HWMonitor is a hardware monitoring program that reads PC systems main health sensors: voltages, temperatures, fans speed. The program handles the most common sensor chips, like ITE* IT87 series, most Winbond* ICs, and others. The program can also read modern CPUs on-die core thermal sensors, as well has a hard drives temperatures via S.M.A.R.T, and video card GPU temperatures.
Complete system BurnIn Test A software tool that simultaneously stress tests all the main subsystems of a computer, for endurance, reliability, and stability.
Complete system WinSAT The Windows System Assessment Tool (WinSAT) assesses the performance characteristics and capabilities of a computer. Developers use this API to develop software that optimizes application settings based on the capabilities of the computer.
Complete system SpeedFan SpeedFan monitors voltages, fan speeds, and temperatures in computers with hardware monitor chips. It can also access S.M.A.R.T. info and show hard disk temperatures.
Complete system Open HW Monitor Open Hardware Monitor is a free open source application that monitors temperature sensors, fan speeds, voltages, load, and clock speeds of a computer. It supports most hardware monitoring chips found on motherboards.
Complete system HWiNFO32 HWiNFO32 is a hardware information and diagnostic tool supporting the latest components, industry technologies, and standards. It collects and presents the maximum amount of information possible about the computer hardware.
Complete system Hmonitor Hardware sensors monitor uses sensor chips on smart motherboards to track system and CPU core temperatures, voltages, and cooling fans. Hmonitor continually monitors the various parameters.
Complete system PerformanceTest PassMark PerformanceTest allows you to objectively benchmark a PC using different speed tests, and compare the results to other computers.
Complete system Speccy Speccy gives you detailed statistics on every piece of hardware in your computer, including CPU, motherboard, RAM, graphics cards, hard disks, optical drives, and audio support. Speccy also adds the temperatures of the different components.
Benchmark programs that run intense tests that strain even the latest hardware. By comparing your benchmark score with millions of others you can find problems with hardware and software.
Graphics MonitorTest Allows you to investigate the quality and performance of your computer monitor or LCD flat panel screen.
Audio SoundCheck Tests your PC sound card, speakers, and microphone to verify that your sound card can record and playback sounds at various audio sample rates. It also checks the capability of your speakers to reproduce the highest and lowest frequencies.
Hard drive Intel® Solid-State Drive Toolbox Tools and diagnostics for Intel® Solid-State Drives.
Hard drive Seagate SeaTools A comprehensive, easy-to-use diagnostic tool that helps you quickly see the condition of the disk drive. It includes several tests that examine the physical media on your Seagate or Maxtor disk drive, or on any other non-Seagate disk drive.
Wireless WirelessMon Allows you to monitor the status of WiFi adapters and gather information about nearby wireless access points and hotspots in real time.
Keyboard KeyboardTest Checks that all the keys on a keyboard are functioning correctly. Checks the keyboard LEDs, looks at the internal scan codes generated by the keyboard, and measures typing speed.
USB USB 2.0 Loopback Active loopback plugs are the quickest, most effective way to verify that USB ports are working correctly.
