I assume you mean "smartctl". You need smartmontools package.

"MHDD" to scan HDDs,
"memtest86" for RAM,
"systester" (in AUR for example) for CPU,
"xev" for keyboard.

mhdd is a proprietary and bad s/w

gsmartctl provides a nice GUI for smartctl and is better.
systester is for stress testing.
OP is not talking about benchmarking
