Intel Burn Test 50% usage? Low Gflops? - Page 2

Well, That's silly.
:|
Guess I'll have to give it another go. I'd hate to have to re-enable page files.
I literally went about an hour with it installed last time before I restored. It was embarrassing. using like 5GB ram without anything running, Pushing 9/10 with FF (200+ tabs) and a few other randoms. In comparison, I'm using 4.29 right now with the same stuff.

There is no reason to have ram free, other than not running programs. The reason you have ram because reading disk's is slow, so any ram used, is something that isn't being read/write off a disk. The reason your ram usage is high with pagefiles on is that windows is storing things in the pagefile, then caching that pagefile in memory. As soon as you need that memory windows will remove the cache and free up the memory. There are certain things that only get stored in a pagefile, like superfetch, dllcache, and the file seach index. With the page file off these features are disabled or ran only from the disk.

I built 4 sandy bridge computers all have different gflops. I have no idea why either. Only one of them had gflops in the 100's. As far as I can see gflops are all over the place with Sand bridge builds. All the x58 builds I have seen have 52-62 gflops. Sandy bridge I see 40-130 gflops.

Actually there is but that's okay. There's a lot of stuff that windows will choose to run in pagefile regardless of whether or not it needs to. Part of it is to keep a section of the kernel in storage in case of bluescreens and what not so there is logs available. (i dont have any minidumps without it)
It makes a huge difference. Not having a constant load to my drive.
In comparison to the way linux handles swap files its completely different. In linux the swap file isnt touched until ram is filled or it has a reason to put it there. In windows, it goes there automatically regardless of how much ram is used. As someone with 16GB of ram who rarely maxes it out it makes no sense for me to even let windows use this section of my already small drive. (default page file size is the same as your ram, so 16GB would be used on my drive)

So, the SP1 definitely affected the gflops measurement, I'm getting 105 stock now. However It's still only using 50% cpu, which i find incredibly strange.
