Cpu-X is a tool similar to Cpu-Z for windows and can very useful at times.
Especially when you're troubleshooting unstable or faulty hardware or when your doing overclocking.
There are other software out there for this but this one is tight and neatly packed in a nice gui with good overview.
I have tried my self to build from source but faild somewhere along the process. Even though I managed to provide all dependencies. And my knowledge when it comes to building packages is not that great. I know there is a portable version in the github and I have gotten it to work but it would be nice to have that option in the repositories built for Solus. And since you are a desktoporiented OS/project I think this would be a good tool for a lot of people to have easy access to.
This is how it looks when working properly - https://ibb.co/cPNYb7
