Overview

AIDA64 Extreme has a hardware detection engine unrivaled in its class. It provides detailed information about installed software and offers diagnostic functions and support for overclocking. As it is monitoring sensors in real time, it can gather accurate voltage, temperature and fan speed readings, while its diagnostic functions help detect and prevent hardware issues. It also offers a couple of benchmarks for measuring either the performance of individual hardware components or the whole system. It is compatible with all 32-bit and 64-bit Windows editions, including Windows 10 and Windows Server 2016.

Hardware detection

AIDA64 has the most accurate hardware detection capabilities in its class. The leading hardware detection engine is based on an exhaustive hardware database containing over 170,000 entries, which ensures that the software provides very detailed and reliable information about the PCs components.

Benchmarks

AIDA64 includes a set of 64-bit benchmarks which measure how fast the computer performs various data processing tasks and mathematical calculations. Memory and cache benchmarks are available to analyze RAM and cache bandwidth and latency. Processor benchmarks utilize MMX, SSE, XOP, FMA, AVX and AVX2 instructions, and scale up to 640 processor threads. AIDA64 Disk Benchmark determines the data transfer speed of hard disk drives, solid-state drives, optical drives and flash memory based devices.

Hardware diagnostics and stress testing

AIDA64 provides detailed information about the CPU as well as the health of CRT and LCD displays. Its system stability test can be used to drive the computer to its absolute limits. During the test, which will help you detect any potential stability and reliability issues, temperatures, voltages and fan speeds can be monitored in real time.

Sensor monitoring

AIDA64 supports over 250 different sensor devices to measure temperatures, voltages, fan speeds and power draw.

On-screen monitoring, alert

Measured sensor values can be displayed on an OSD panel, a Sidebar Gadget, System Tray icons, the SensorPanel and on the LCD of Logitech and Razer gaming keyboards. The values can also be logged into a file or exported to external applications such as RivaTuner or Samurai. AIDA64 can also send an alert to the user when it detects overheating, over-voltage or a cooling fan failure.More...

Software information

AIDA64 can provide over 50 pages of information on installed programs, software licenses, security applications and Windows settings. Lists of running processes, services, DLL files, startup programs and web pages visited are also available.More...

AIDA64 Extreme features for PC enthusiasts

Benchmarks

AIDA64 includes a set of benchmarks which can be used to assess the performance of both individual parts and the whole system. The software can measure memory and cache bandwidth, storage device transfer speeds as well as the computing performance of the CPU and the FPU. Thanks to its huge reference result database, benchmark results can be compared to those of other configurations.

Real-time sensor monitoring

As AIDA64 supports a wide range of sensor devices, it can accurately measure temperatures, voltages, fan speeds and power draw. It offers several options to display sensor readings on the desktop, including the fully customizable graphical dashboard, the SensorPanel. AIDA64 can send alerts to the user or can even shut down the computer when it detects critical values – when a cooling fan comes to a halt, for example.

Overclocking support

With AIDA64, you can monitor sensor readings in real time and review the settings and status of hardware components crucial for overclocking on a dedicated page. You can also check the stability of your overclocked system using the integrated system stability test, which can be used to drive hardware parts to their absolute limits, and identify those responsible for instability.

Testimonials

As leading developers of computing hardware for enthusiasts, we spend countless hours in the lab evaluating the performance and compatibility of our latest memory, storage, and cooling products. We have found that AIDA64 is an ideal tool for comprehensively evaluating new hardware in the 64-bit Windows 7 environment that our customers favor. We have used AIDA and Everest tools for many years, and see this partnership continuing well into the future.

AIDA64 Business Edition has turned out to be the perfect tool to complete the tasks we were required to do. Thanks to its Audit manager, we can get detailed hardware and software statistics from our PCs as quick as lightning. Using the change-tracking module, we can easily follow the changes on client computers, and besides that, it has many convenient features that facilitate managing our configurations.

With remote monitoring, we can track the usage of our internal network, while the remote control feature allows us to take full control of a colleague’s machine with a single click. As a result, support and troubleshooting became both faster and higher quality.

I have used AIDA(32) since it was born. It was then and is now just an easy way to gather information about the hardware and software installed on any PC. In our reviews we use it to check if mainboards read SPDs correctly, if the hardware monitoring tools are working properly and to check the CPU temperatures. Of course, no product is perfect, but the response-time of the AIDA team is just incredibly fast which enables them to improve their product further. While 64-bit OSes have been on the market for years, most software still trails years behind. We are glad that AIDA64 has moved to 64-bit.

When reviewing hardware for one of the world’s most popular technology websites AIDA64 has become one of my must have utilities. From full desktop and laptop systems down to individual components such as CPUs, AIDA64 gives me the information I need quickly and in a user friendly way. Whether I am testing the newest component or something older AIDA64 always proves its usefulness. This alone is great but as an added benefit the support offered by FinalWire is exceptional; they are quick to respond and always helpful.

AIDA64 offers me everything I need for real-time system monitoring, and when it doesn't, submitting a report to FinalWire gets a working version in short order, if an updated version is not already available. Updates to the software are very frequent, more than almost any other software tool, making it one of the most up-to-date programs, period. The CPU and memory benchmarks have proven to be reliable, with repeatable results, and the informational modules provide data that few tools report. With the addition of support of a customizable external display to LCD screens like the one offered by the Logitech G15, AIDA64 has become the ultimate software tool that I could not do without.

For many years we used AIDA32/EVEREST in our professional work to get reliable and up-to-date system information and performance evaluation of PCs and components. It helps us a lot to make press-reviews of new hardware while daily publishing on popular web-sites www.ixbt.com and www.ixbtlabs.com as well as in the printed magazine iXBT (Russian Edition). We're glad that AIDA64 continues the valuable mission of Everest in the field of 64-bit applications, and certainly we'll continue to use it for our testing and reviews as one of the most reliable and powerful tool for many PC components (CPU, RAM, VGA, HDD, etc.).

I like the way AIDA64 is able to identify a wide range of hardware. I consider the information collected to be very helpful and a big time-saver for us. You can imagine that with 1,200 computers between me and one other technician, it just isn’t practical to visit each PC to evaluate its performance.
