Everyone likes to know the details of their computer. The model of its motherboard, the references of the processor, the technical characteristics of the graphics card.  

To know everything about your computer, The software AIDA64 is the ultimate benchmark. It allows you to list your devices, automatically search for the latest drivers, test and compare the power of your hardware. Essential software if you are a maintenance technician or if you are used to being called by your family if you have a problem with their computer.

In a few seconds, AIDA64 lets you know everything about your hardware, software, drivers, BIOS or your registry. Thanks to its integrated benchmarks, it will also be able to gauge the power of your components or perform a “stress test”. This test actually allows your computer's resources to run completely until it crashes.

The goal is not to break the PC, but just to reveal its weaknesses (too much heat, inadequate voltage, incorrectly installed software, etc.).

Of course, AIDA64 is chargeable, but its 30-day trial version allows you to test most of the features. Largely enough to form an opinion.

How to use AIDA64?

Step 1:

On the publisher websitechoose AIDA Extreme products and on the left, go to the Download section. Here you can choose an installable version or a portable version to put on a USB stick. The Business and Engineering versions differ very little from the consumer version so opt for AIDA 64 Extreme.

Step 2:

Knowing the parts of your computer is one thing, but knowing what is really on your stomach is another. In the Performance category, you will have different tools to test the performance of your processor, your RAM, and your computer's ability to calculate floating point numbers (FPUs). For each benchmark, you will have available the measurements made on components other than yours to compare.

Step 3:

What happens when your computer is pushed to its limits? The "stress test" will run your processors, RAM, graphics card and hard drive at 100% to see the reactions of your system. This involves checking the correct operation of the fans, the Temperature control, voltage correction or write errors to the storage space. You can of course control these items one by one.

Finally, a simplistic benchmark is integrated. In short, a powerful and complete software as we would like to see more often. To download the full version, it's happening here.
