There are plenty of members in the Science, Computers, and Technology subforum of the Minecraft Forums who deal with the hardware side of computers. This thread is a place to share your system's part lists, pictures of your system and setup, and anything else related to your technology! When posting information, it's recommended to include pictures in Spoiler tags, so as to reduce page length and loading times for members. If you're unsure of how to post a list of your system's components, read further down to find out about Speccy.
In order to make it easier for everyone to interpret what's going on here, it's recommend you utilize the part list tools supplied at PCPartPicker, which you can find here. Add your parts to the list, and export to BBCode utilizing the export function to the top right. If you don't wish current prices to be shown, edit them out.

Unsure of your system's specs? Not a total geek who has them memorized by heart? Not to fear! There is a wonderful program called Speccy, which allows you to get an idea of what components are in your system. We encourage everyone to post a picture of the output from Speccy. In order to do so, just follow these instructions:
Download and Install the Speccy program. You can find the official download page at this link. Do note that you do NOT need to purchase the Professional version. Simply download the Free Version from the FileHippo or Piriform link. The FileHippo link will take you to another site, where you can click on the download button shown to the right. The Piriform link will take you to another site, whereupon the download will start immediately. Caution: Be very careful when downloading any software, even from trusted sources. Read carefully when looking for the correct Download button.
After installing Speccy, run the program. It will take a few moments to generate all of the information.
Take a screenshot of the program.
Open an image editing program, such as MS Paint, GIMP, or Paint.net.
Paste the saved screenshot in, and save the picture.
It is highly recommended to crop out personal information that may be in the picture, such as usernames.
Upload the saved image to any image hosting website, such as Imgur.
You should do something before everything melts and your HDD is really hot
I agree. My HDD is a cool 23 celsius xD
Apparently my static SSD is hotter then a disk spinning at several thousand times a second... Seems legit. TBH it is mounted nearly right under the CPU. The case allows the installation of an SSD on the panel that the motherboard rests on.
