    Thanks for bringing this software to our attention. I was unaware of it.

    My motherboard is made by ECS Elitegroup. The silkscreen says that I have version 2 of this model. However, the software from Crucial, 4allMemory, CPU-ID, and now Speccy all say I have version 1. That makes a big difference as to what hardware I can install. I’ve called ECS about this, and they assure me I have version 2. Don’t know how to explain this. Sounds like someone at the factory messed up.

    I was wondering if you might be interested in publishing a guest/sponsored article on your website or writing a product review. Do you allow such options?
    Please let me know your thoughts!

    Thank you for your time.

    Not clear to me if the difference between the Speccy trial version and Speccy Professional is anything more than the requirement that you not be a business. It appears it gives a small subset of the information that will be revealed by Belarc’s free (to individuals) scan program, but there’s something to be said for an application that does only what you need.
