System monitors can be important when you want to find out what you loaded with. I uninstalled speecy and now find using SIW and BelArc to be more comprehensive. Problem with speecy is it lacks certain features you would want to have access to. Plus it's a bigger memory hog.

The type of software that you use depends on what you require of it, Speccy is fine to use as a troubleshooting tool but it is not for monitoring a computer in any way + you can safely post the results url on tech help forums such as GTG without any personal information such as OS and other software product keys being displayed, you cannot do this with Belarc Advisor which is not a fault btw as the software is intended for personal use Aida64, Belarc Advisor, Sandra Lite and SIW are all equally as good in their own right, I do think that you will find they do use more system resources than Speccy does though  ;) 

 

The secret is to use any monitoring software that has been provided by the MB and GPU etc manufacturer/s and avoid downloading anything from sites such as CNet that land you with unsolicited foistware.

True Speccy is good lite weight program for general information. Does not show  personal info if using here or anywhere else in a forum.

 

Speaking of ones that come from the manufacturer, i had originally on my PC with Windows 7, ASUS II Suite which was decent and monitored the temps, voltage and fans of devices. But seems to have issues now that i have Windows 8.1, it works, but i have some issues.

 

ASUS has not really addressed this issue with making a upgrade to perform well with Win8.1.

 

So for me i do like AIDA64 does a lot for me without need for so many other programs together on same system, for seperate functions.

I know not to compare it to Speccy, plus for one it is not free. Speccy just a tool to be able to see what is on system and some specs.

 

True about where you download, always go to manufacurer's site like Piriform for Speccy.
