Page file help

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
I read a FAQ a while back on my old comp on a few things to disable so it will make things run quicker i believe it was page file and stuff. I had to change like 3-4 values from 0 to 1. Something about better memory performance.. anyone know what im talking about and can help me?

Not sure what you are talking about with the values. You can change the size of your page file. With 2 gig of ram some people have it turned off altogether and are reporting a little increase in performance but for me I just leave it all as standard and it seems to be fine. I have noticed no difference between tinkering with it or not.

It appears that you are into gaming so I would not try to improve your Windows performance too much. The rule of thumb is that if you have 1GB of memory or 1024mb or 2 x512mb DDR or DDR2 your page file should be 1536mb or 3x512=1536 which equals (total memory + 1/3). Some folks prefer to run with page file off if they have 1gb or more memory? I don't recommend this unless you are using the PC for just a very few tasks? Some use the rule of 2x existing memory some use 3x existing memory? I recommend going into [Control Panel > then System > then Advanced > then Performance > then Settings > look to see what Windows has it set at and go from there. Remember to hit the set button each time you make a change.

It would be nice if you would explain what it is you are hoping to accomplish with your memory? There are many tweaks you can use to gain performance. Remember your settings when changing default values, especially if you decide to make registry changes. The overclock.net FAQ's are a great source to draw from when looking for performance settings tweaks etc...

Sounds like a registry tweak (typing something into Run, going through a sunfolder or two and changing a value from 0 to 1). Gonna look around see if i can find anything.

Got beaten to it.

ram is by far imo the hardest part to oc because thee are so many factors that play into the timings and settings it really all about tweaking. I postedq link below from dfi-street that although applies to dfi-boards most boards have the same way to change timings and tweak settings. Its gonna be under part 4 about halfway down. long read but really teach you alot. GL

im not trying to mess with timings... i already have my memory running at 2-3-2-5 at 2.7V i just want to tweek some windows settings to get better performance.. i thought there was somethin that kept the System from using the memory on the HD or savin stuff to the HArd Drive since using that is alot slower than accessing direct from the RAM?
