    Huge paging file and apps crashing


    Hello.

    My windows 10 creates super huge page file
    It created 15000 mb one on my 250gb SSD samsung evo 970
    after i reduced it to 1 gb/3 gb/5 gb most of high demanding gamesthis in primarily gaming pc started crashing after 5-10 min
    some of them report insufficient memory/video memory some of them just freeze permanently.
    so i removed manual size, and set up system managed paging file on my 2tb hdd and kept 512 mb on SSD just in case
    games keeps crashing but mostly after 30-40 mins of gametime

    I dont see any superhigh memory usage in any games, and total ram usage never goes further 14 out of 16 gb.

    Can you help me find out why does my PC thinks that it needs 16 gb of paging file while having 16 gb of ram?

    :)

    Page File

    Set minimum and maximum to a constant number as suggested by others, that will help reduce fragmentation on the drive coz of different page file sizing.

    Huge paging file and apps crashing

    all games crash!

    I suggest you run rthdribl > http://www.daionet.gr.jp/~masa/archives/rthdribl_1_2.zip
    Increase the window size step by step and watch your vga temps permanently.
    What happens?
    If it crashes, run at stock speeds as suggested before and retry.

    P.S.: When your system locks, does the display signal turn off after a time?
    Stuttering sound or no sound at all when freezing?
    What X1800XT model do you own exactly?
