Windows 7: SIV (System Information Viewer)

SIV (System Information Viewer)

There are plenty of system information software out there, SIW, Everest, Sandra, Speccy, etc. And I wasn't expecting any reason to keep this one, but figured I'd try it. I'm keeping it. It gives some very detailed information, and doesn't require installation, just extract to a folder.

Version 4.12 released on 14-Sep-2010
Added the [Sectors] page to display Disk Drive Physical and Logical sector information. Updated [Geometry] and [Partitions] to include drive serial numbers.
Added support for ATI SB8x0 SMBus controllers and the ITE IT8721F LPC controller.
Updated the [H/W Status] page to include environmental information from the motherboard LPC and SMBus sensors. Added support for most temperature scales.
Added the [Direct X] page to display the Direct X versions that are installed.
Updated the [Cache Latency] page to show a progress bar. The latency is now measured using a worker thread, so the CPU Utilisation plots, CPU Speeds and Environmental information will continue to be updated. I have also changed the [Sensors], [SMART] and [Volumes] pages to use worker threads for updates.
Added the [SMBus Locks] page which shows the locking Mutex names and which namespace they exist in.
Added support for the Compaq W8000 SMBus multiplexor to facilitate the reporting of RIMM SPD information.
Added reporting of SMBus environmental sensors for ASUS A7V, NCT-D, P4T533, Compaq W8000, W6000, Dell 490, 530, 610, HP xw8000, Intel BS460GX, DX58SO, MS440GX, MSI MS-6135 and Tyan S3992 systems. Added generic support for the SMSC LPC47M192.

Hi,

I just stumbled across System Information Viewer and I like it a lot! So far it has helped me spot a couple of items that could have been better configured. I like the "Tune Up" feature. I spotted that the GDIProcessHandleQuota and USERProcessHandleQuota could be improved on my machine - well, after a little research. That was something I didn't know about before now.

The amount of information presented is stunning!

Thanks very much for posting.

Be careful using any tune-up feature in any application.
