I love trying out new PC software which claims to be able to detect the details of all the components installed in your computer. My latest favourite is called Speccy, from Piriform (who also make CCleaner).
The program is available in a variety of versions, including one that's totally free. You'll find it at https://www.piriform.com/speccy and it's a 5 MB download. The program is malware-free according to both Web of Trust and VirusTotal (although it does lose a point from the latter for having a bundled Google toolbar, which you can choose not to install).
So if you've ever wondered precisely who makes your motherboard, or the current temperature of your hard disk (34 degrees celsius in my case, apparently), check out this excellent troubleshooting utility.
