    Use Task Manager to determine the process that is hogging your memory.
    Alternatively, you can use Process Explorer.

    The stock 16GB that came with the system.

    I have tried using resource manager to see what is using up all the memeory. But it seems no programs are showing up as using lots of ram. Its just ram gets used up slowly in the and there is no sign of what is doing it which makes me think its a driver.

    Hmm, I often leave mine up for a couple days as well as it's my main work computer as well as my gaming PC. Some days I'll turn it on and off a few times or let it sleep when I travel or need it in the truck, but when at my home office I've had it running for days without a reboot or shutdown and haven't run into a memory leak that I've noticed. I remember you mentioning it a couple months back and saying it was video driver related.

    I've used the 320.49's up until I finally upgraded to the 327's and now the new 331.40 for the BF4 beta, all of which have been stable and no signs of any memory leak. For example, I use HWiNFO64 a lot, especially when gaming, and have had it up all morning in the background; currently I'm using 2379MB of physical memory after running over night and using Office all morning.

    This is from an MSI factory restore install a couple months back I did after installing the second 256GB mSATA drive. Oddly could never get a clean regular install stable (would regularly BSOD on random boots), but the factory image is completely stable. Using the MSI drivers at the time, with video (intel and NVidia) updated as released, daily checks for Windows Updates, but nothing much else. I keep Steam running, and Outlook is open during the day, and a couple of the default MSI apps are still running (Keyboard LED, SB Cinema, Intel RST, Killer network, Skydrive)

    Still have to think it's something that is running on your PC, but no idea what. Is it even possible for a slow memory leak to be hardware related? I have no idea.

    Good luck, I know that's got to be annoying.

    My GT70 did the same - nothing was showing but memory got slowly filled up; it was an old version of Everest/AIDA leaking.

    I have have redone the MSI factory reset. And think I might have narrowed it down to either Killer wireless manager Or skype or nvidia / intel gfx driver when using external monitors :( Since its taking about 16 hours to fill up my ram its hard to spot at first. Very annoying!!!

    I'd also run memtest and see how it goes.

    I have left my computer on for a couple of days but haven't noticed a memory leak. I will check it out now, as I haven't used my laptop in a while.

    The AC router is here and the connection is currently the same. The wifi card is not scheduled to be here until Monday. I am disappointed in that...

    Battlefield 4 plays perfectly though! It does require the new beta drivers.

    Since I was not a premium user or whatever that is, I get to try it until... today? haha :) I have heard good impressions from many users so I am not worried.

    As for yoru wifi card, damm it sucks when you plan to receive and upgrade and turns out part of it arrives later :(

    I was pleasantly surprised when I opened the mail box and found a big box from Newegg! In the box was only one item, a mini wifi pcie card. Such a large box for a small component. I did pop the new wifi card in and I made a video of it, link will be below. So far, I am seeing a huge difference. I am never in the same room as the router. Currently, I am one-floor above the router and I have full signal running at 866M. Huge speed boost when accessing my files on a local NAS. I am transferring large files at 50MBps, which is the same I am getting when connected through my 1g Ethernet cables. As for BF4, I have noticed a 8ms drop in latency across most serves. To Chicago I see under 20ms, to Atlanta and New York I am seeing 14ms, to DC I am seeing 4ms. This is pretty nice for snipers like myself!
