A computer is a assembly of CPU, Motherboard, Mainboard, Memory, Hard disk & Graphics card. When you purchase a PC or say Laptop, you just focus on main components of the device e.g, Motherboard, CPU, Hard Disk, RAM etc.
But, have you think these main items are build of various small components, and in this article, I will try to find out those little components information with the help of CPU-Z.
The CPU-Z is a freeware tool, that gathers information on some of the main devices of your system.
