    Much better:) But your pagefault increased from below 500 to +13K

    Edit. Forgot. Thanks for testing. +rep

    Pondering about which pads to get for repadding: Gelid extreme or the slightly higher rated Panasonic which are more expensive. Both seem to be very soft compared to Fujipoly/alpha cool Eisschicht.


    Did run windows update which installed something and put the fans on high. Now page fault does better. What does this value indicate? [​IMG]

    Everything is well explained in the link I posted... https://www.resplendence.com/latencymon

    "Hard pagefaults are a very common but often overlooked cause of audio dropouts, clicks and pops. They especially occur often with audio software that uses a lot of memory such as samplers. Solutions for avoiding hard pagefaults are increasing the working set of the audio application, increasing the amount of RAM or disabling the pagefile altogether"

    Gelid are great. Can't beat the price to performance imo.

    That's exactly what was wrong. Mine buzzed a lot even at low volume. New speakers seem to be working better thus far. Only tested for a few minutes though

    Always set Swap/Page file to a fixed value. I always assign 4GB PF when RAM is more than 8GB. Not that its needed but in low memory situations 4GB swap file on SSD really helps.

    I just disable it! 48gb ram is more than enough. XD

    Yes but still I'd leave a little bit on there. I have 64 gigs on my machine but still I've run out of memory twice (although my case isn't average gaming scenario). For usual games and stuff, anything above 32 gigs, no pagefile needed.

    It depends upon how much RAM you have and how often memory pages are being swapped from physical memory to virtual memory. The higher ram you have, the lesser page faults. Although it will be more noticeable in terms of speed if you have a mechanical hard drive. If you're running a fast NVMe drive, page faults won't slow things down as drastically, but there is still a time latency involved none the less.

    Today it happened again. I have saved the event log (errors/warning only). I get 15 entries, but I cannot really say how to read it. Nothing really seem fatal IMO. :-/

    I ran out of memory 16GB on Windows 10 when I was trying ML/AI samples and then tried the same things on Linux which used only 8-12GB and ran like a boss.
    I'd suggest using 800MB which will assist you in debugging BSOD otherwise there'll be no logs whatsoever.
