I joined the club with 16gb of memory!!! Yeiiiiiii!!!
I didn't really see sufficient improvement in game load times to bother putting any on my SSD, so space isn't really a problem. Still though, I have page file tuned down to only 1GB.
Pardon my laziness but there is 35 pages... so im just gonna ask :nerd:
Also just joined the club with 16gig
Wanted to know when disabling pagefile does RAM take over the job automatically or do I have to do this RAMdisk thingo.... and how :wanker:
With the pagefile disabled, Windows will read/write to ram for everything.
Are you running with a fast raid array?
Else you should see huge differences, specially when you wait for loading screens.
No, I'm not going to waste money on a RAID array of SSD's. That's absurd. Even the one I bought was too expensive.
Like 2 years back when SSD's were just being released and intel had the performance crown on ther X25-E/M drives i bought the 160GB version and pay'd like €420,- for it !!! uke2: i was mad back then .
And games like Crysis/warhead loaded like 3sec faster then my normal drive ... :wanker::wanker::wanker::wanker::wanker::wanker:
I have a Crucial M4 128GB SSD (OS) and Intel X25-M 160GB SSD (Games) ...
Just rejoined the club, as I have 12GB of RAM now, I thought I'd give it another go and see how it goes.
How comes under Mkilbride's name it says he's banned, but next to his name the little green light is there suggesting he's online?
Hi guys! I'm new here so I what should I do to get the most out of my 8gb RAM?
well, just disable there pagefile and there u go
What're the benefits?
Disabling the pagefile forces Windows to actually use the installed ram.
Wow, after doing that it added 8gb to my drive
Thats probably the biggest benefit right there, reclaimed Disk Space!
Especially for me as I only have a 128GB SSD for my OS, Apps and Games, gets low quite quick!
I need more ram. tried with no pagefile, but with skyrim i hit 7,6GB and got the warning popup.
Can be any slowdowns in the overall system performance is pagefile is disabled?
Hey Bigtime, once Ivy 3770 is out, il stick that bastard in my mobo and join the club! delete ALL the pagefile!
my system still wont let me disable the pagefile, every time after log on I get message saying windows has created a temporary pagefile
As stated many many times, many windows installations will simply not allow you to disable paging file.
There could be a million reasons such as stuff you installed, services you set to run, network drives (yes a real reason) etc.
Please remember, that in normal working conditions your ram will always take the brunt of your performance needs, so dont worry about disabling paging file with a machine like yours.
Theoretically there shouldnt be any slowdowns but there will be some games/programs that can go loco when its disabled. One for example being BF3, it will give you a Direct X error if you disable it so I just set it to 1GB just to be safe.
