Get PC Hardware Info And Check Temperatures In Windows - Everest

Updated on September 2, 2013

An Ideal, Free Application With Many Uses!

Have you ever wanted to check the temperatures of your hardware without having to restart the system to check for it inside BIOS setup?

During a hot summer, with everything around melting in the heat, have you ever got worried of the stress you are putting on your graphics card and the heat it is producing when you are playing your favorite video game?

Ever wondered if the fan you have placed inside the case, or the CPU fan is adequate for your climate and usage? (and which its condition is at the moment?).

If you answered Yes to at least one of these questions, then you should probably look into downloading Everest application! You can visit and acquire an older yet completely free version of it, more than enough for your desktop or notebook use.

Ever formatted your system, only to realize you have misplaced the drivers CDs, right when they are needed most? In such annoying circumstance, you would surely have to search for the drivers from the company your hardware originated from. But how can you tell which chipset your audio card has, so you can get the right driver for it?

Everest is the solution to all these problems. It is a lightweight application that provides an interesting GUi and can show all information regarding your system. Your CPU, your memory amount and its speed, your hard drives details, audio,network and graphics cards, everything is shown, with details about each, links from which you can find the drivers and many, many more. Once you get to use this software, you will wonder how you could do without it in the past.

The interface

Things are simple; the main categories are listed at left, from which the user can choose what information he wants to see by clicking to the field of interest.

Particularly, in the Computer category and Sensor field, Everest will show the temperatures of the most important of the hardware (that depends on the system, but usually CPU, Graphics Card and Hard Drives temperatures are shown too). The fans that have been connected inside will also show their speed of rotation in RPM ( but if your case fan is not connected directly to motherboard there will not be speed monitoring). In voltage values area, user can check if the voltage supplied from the Power Supply is near the required values (it will never be exactly the value though), thus he can probably prevent power problems caused by an inadequate or gradually wearing-out power supply unit.

Other sections which are very useful are the memory and graphics sections; at the memory area, you will get to know not only the amount of RAM in the system, but also the latency timings, the manufacturer and the voltages. As far as graphics are concerned, you can get detailed information on the chipset, the driver, the running capabilities and even benchmark options.
All in all, Everest is a program that is light enough to be necessary for every single computer, no matter if the user of it is amateur or expert. And, don't forget, it's free too!
