Speccy displays your PC's specifications: everything from software and hardware versions to peripherals, storage, graphics, and network data. Its compact program size and layout make it a versatile tool for upgrades, troubleshooting, and maintenance. Speccy is a great place to start when you need to know something about your computer.
Specs and stats: Speccy displays your system's specifications and other available data under expandable category headings like Motherboard, CPU, RAM, Optical Drives, and Audio.
Temperature and voltage: Speccy can display real-time temperatures and voltages from sensors in most motherboards. Tiny graphs expand to full size when clicked.
Save and export data: You can take, load, and publish Snapshots of Speccy's reports or save data as Text or XML files that technical support can use to diagnose computer problems.
No alarms: While Speccy displays temperature and voltage data, it lacks alerts or notifications to excessive temperatures and voltage fluctuations. Similar tools offer such features, though in fairness that's a job that's probably best done by proper monitoring software, especially if heat and power issues are of concern.
Speccy is a versatile tool that doesn't take up much space on the disk or desktop yet earns its keep every time you need to find out something about your PC. It's a reliable "daily driver" that strikes a good balance between the basic information available from Windows and similar specification tools that return an overwhelming amount of data.
Speccy will give you detailed statistics on every piece of hardware in your computer. Including CPU, Motherboard, RAM, Graphics Cards, Hard Disks, Optical Drives, Audio support. Additionally Speccy adds the temperatures of your different components, so you can easily see if there's a problem.
Some of the basic information can be found by right-clicking My Computer and then clicking Properties. The General tab lists some statistics, and the Device Manager on the Hardware tab lists all of the hardware you've got installed. But it misses out lots of information that you need.

Version: Speccy 1.28.709
Not sure if there is any reason for it over Windows own system information and its possibly unreliable
When I got this at first I thought it was working fine but after upgrading my memory its still reporting the speed at around 650mhz when the bios and windows system information reports it at being 1333 which it is. It at least has the amount of ram correct at 8mb. I don't know if this is reliable unless someone can explain otherwise.
No pros I can even think of other than finding out the temperature of your unit.
Incorrect data given in a few areas. Does not generate a report of everything on your system such as software and updates installed.
I received incorrect hardware type on a few things. On being RAM told me pc 2300 when I actually had PC 3200. Said there was 3GB RAM when I only have only 2.5GB
told me dvd/cd rom was Samsung when was liteOn. I put the hardware in myself with all accompanied software so I know how incorrect Speccy is. Piriform dropped the ball with this one
get all the relevant information about your computer, make it easy to upgrade or know what drivers or capabilities your system have. i Have some other programs, but this one is the most complete and accurate.
None to mention..
Highly recommended program if you need to know what is inside your PC.

Version: Speccy 1.24.632
Speccy goes far beyond the typical system information tools' hardware granularity, drilling deep down to display accurate detail of hardware sub(sub)-components, detail that often surpasses what can bed found in a vendor's own service manuals (e.g. manufacturer, size, type, quantity, and speed of the chips on each RAM board inserted into each RAM slot).
On most systems, Speecy causes a noticeable sustained high CPU utilization even after obtaining and displaying the detailed component information. This appears due to its monitoring hardware for changes, which is evident when you the numerous temperature sensors changing.
Reliable, accurate detail on hardware, OS, and software in modern Windows-based computers. Unbeatable in free utilities.
