My rig has 16GB of RAM, Superfetch is disabled and the page file is disabled because I'm a power user and I do production work every day. For some reason every time my RAM usage hits 9.5GB something crashes. A tab in Fixed Firefox, my SQL query logs, etc. It's as if I've hit the 16GB limit directly. Now I'm aware that I can't fully prevent Windows from dumping mud pies in the RAM but I do use RAMMap to clear the mud pies out every so often. Even with RAMMap and the "mud pie" junk accounted for I should still have 6.5GB of RAM available. And unless I've missed something between now and the 90s if my RAM was bad my PC wouldn't POST let alone boot in to Windows to a very usable state. I do web development and have highly optimized, cleaned up and themed version of Firefox but I know that isn't the issue since I hit the issue with Chrome occasionally (no GUI is not a GUI) or other RAM intensive programs. I'm not interested in buying more RAM right now because I'm either going to switch from my AM3+ to an AM4 or the new Threadripper in a few months. I mean, 16GB should be enough. I've never encountered this issue on any of my client's computers (phasing out the PC repair bit to concentrate on my web business) and I've never heard anything from any of my tech friends. I'm not interested in debating why I should turn on my page file because last time I checked none of us are using 16KB of RAM that cost $1,200. I can't even say using all 16GB of RAM is like overclocking...it's more like your GPU is advertised at 950MHz but the heat drops the clocks to 400-600MHz and the game performance drops too. Only for me this is not gaming, it's my livelihood and being able to work uninterrupted. Suggestions please? Also my first post here, I've been a very long time reader.
