How to detect your entire computer the easiest way

I made a quick video yesterday about the auto-detection tool Pc.nfo Live. The goal of the app is to make something different of CPU-Z & GPU-Z. I know, they are great apps, but when you want to learn more about your power supply, chassis & heatsink, there is no way to detect them. All you’ll get, it is the chip’s specification.

Here is what I mean, if you detect a graphic card of the same chip from 2 different manufacturers, GPU-Z will show you almost the same specs, but it fact, physically, they are not the same. So, Pc.nfo Live can make a difference, by finding the right graphic card.

In the video, I show you my gaming rig. Nothing exceptional, but enough power for my favorite games. Here is my specs: evga tri-sli 790i motherboard, q6600 processor, silverstone nt-01 copper heatsink, 4x mushkin 2gigs ddr2 1066 memory, 2x asus fanless en9600gt 512mb graphic card, mushkin 650w power supply, owc accelsior 120gb raid ssd card, all in my coolermaster centurion2 chassis.

Now, we know that Pc.nfo Live should detect my motherboard, cpu, rams, gpus, hdd or ssd. In my video, he found the motherboard & cpu only. That is because of the base knowledge of the project. The more people detect computers, the more parts will be included in the database. Each part must be designed within a specific quality.

Those who want to see and manage their computer with Pc.nfo, if some parts are not detected or not in the manual completion list, email at with your parts name. I will add them in priority.
