Memory usage issue....

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I have never noticed any memory issues until recently adding a 250gb SSD as my main windows 7 drive. My system has been running on 8gb of ram for the longest time without a problem and now while playing BF4 I'm getting BSOD's that say physical memory is full and dumping. I have been keeping a eye on my memory usage and notice that it continues to climb slowly in game up to around 7.3gb used before a BSOD.

In the past I have never seen it climb above 5+gb's used while playing BF4.

Any Idea what may be causing this?

Thanks

Are you using Samsung RAPID mode with your SSD(s)?

If so it is likely that the DRAM caching that is causing your problems. Especially if you have it enabled on both Samsung SSDs.

Not sure if they are being used in rapid mode.

How would I find out?


Update: I just installed the new update for Samsung Magician and now I see where you can enable rapid mode. I don't have that enabled.

Thanks

Use the Windows 7 task manager to graph memory usage by application or resource. Sounds like you've got a memory leak somewhere else, we just have to find out what is causing it.

I used to see the same thing in Borderlands 2 when it was first released. Used all 8 gigs eventually once you started playing the game.

As wevsspot said, have the performance monitor section of the task manager open and click the memory tab to see whats overusing it.

This is after one round of BF4 with all 16gb installed.

Everything seems to look normal and the problem seems to look specific to BF4, reinstall it maybe.

Other than that, if you've disabled, shrunk or manually set the size of your page file, there's a good chance that's the cause.
