    Memory Usage at 99%

    I mean he bought it a week ago so he could. I just feel like I could save him all the trouble....

    Memory Usage at 99%

    I mean I am not messing with the hardware so I don't see how it would void my warranty to plug a USB stick into the machine and wipe it.

    Memory Usage at 99%

    I don't think that is a hardware issue when it is working until you have the computer on for a few hours and watch the memory usage creep up. I think it is some sort of memory leak but it can only come from Windows because I have nothing else installed.

    Nope, nothing is open when this is happening. At most he has had maybe 3 tabs open.

    Memory Usage at 99%

    Everywhere it clearly shows 8GB of ram and when the computer starts up it is using the proper amount of ram that I would expect (2-2.5GB). So I doubt that is the problem.

    Memory Usage at 99%

    Brothers new Microsoft Surface Laptop. i5 processor, 8GB of ram, 256GB SSD. Literally got it a week ago and has don't very little with it. The only program he has loaded up is Firefox. That is literally it. Doesn't even have any files on it or anything. After a few hours of use the memory slowly creeps up to 99% usage. Then the laptop becomes unusable. Task manager doesn't show anything using that usage. Nothing is open and the usage is still at 99% using all 8GB. Once you reboot the laptop it goes back to its normal like 2.5GB of ram usage and then slowly starts creeping up using more and more again. Is this like a Windows 10 memory leak or something? Any help would be greatly appreciated. I am trying to avoid having to reinstall Windows on it.

    Used Server

    For a while now I have been looking at buying a server to use as a NAS and for personal/work things. I have been searching but I am having trouble finding options for what I want. Price is preferably under $600 CAD Has storage for 8 x 3.5" drives. Would like them to be hot swap bays. Good processor(s). Would like it to have 8 to 12 cores (16 to 24 threads). 32GB of ram Looking for older hardware (~2008 - ~2012) stuff so that the price is more affordable. I am having trouble finding good options. I was originally looking at some used HP ProLiant DL380 on eBay as they go for ~$300. Only issue is the hot swap bays are 2.5" so I couldn't fit the drives I currently own. If you know of any older lines of servers that would fit into what I am looking for that would be awesome.
  8. Assuming you are actually serious about this, what will you be using this computer for?

    I think it could handle it. I have a GTX 1060 with a 2560 x 1080 ultrawide (60Hz) and can max out most games at 60FPS.

    [CAN - CC] EVGA DG-73 case $39.99

    Damn.... I am tempted just to buy that because it is so cheap. Although I don't need a case and it isn't that great of a case.

    Also need to check that your motherboard supports that much ram.
