Speccy simplifies access to a computer's technical specifications for anyone, especially IT professionals. Speccy delivers the data in a way that makes it more legible and easy to digest than the normal Windows function, which exposes system information in a report format that seems as it is. The same company, Piriform, that created CCleaner also created Speccy. There is a paid version and a free version (with limited features) available for download from the official website.

The only distinguishing feature between the professional and non-professional versions is the latter's automatic updates; the former's premium assistance is merely an after-the-fact perk.

There are only two panes in the Speccy view. The name of the hardware is shown in the first panel, and details on each piece of hardware are provided in the second. To aid users in reading the Speccy-collected system data, the interface's background is made a little darker and the text is presented in a variety of colors.

Download Speccy for Windows, which also includes temperature and hardware health status, makes it superior to Windows' System Information feature in more ways than one. Here, the user can check the hardware's internal temperatures, including those of the central processing unit, the motherboard, and the hard drive. If necessary, you can switch from Celsius to Fahrenheit to reflect the actual temperature. The health status of devices, including hard drives in particular, can be determined.

There's an option to show the temperature of your hardware in the system tray, too. You'll find this option in the Options menu and will need to activate it before you can choose whatever piece of hardware's temperature you want to see. After turning on this function, a temperature icon in the system tray will display alongside a numerical readout of the current hardware temperature.

Display metrics in tray tooltip is another option that should be activated. When the temperature icon in the system tray is clicked, the motherboard, processor, and hard drive temperatures are all displayed. You may also install Core Temp to monitor the CPU temperature and configure Speccy to monitor the motherboard or hard drive temperature.
