CPU check !!!


Hi guys,

i have one short question. how can i check what type of CPU my PC is using. i didn't compile my own kernel, so i am using the already compiled one from Mandy 9.1
i was wondering since i didn't compile the kernel, if my PC is using the full power of my hardware, like CPU, Video & etc.

Thanks for your reply! keet it real!
see ya, TheShemeta

A few:
cat /proc/meminfo
free

For usage of CPU and ram try running "top" then press P and M to sort by processor and memory usage.
