PC problem

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi guys,

 

So I bought a x99 Godlike Gaming motherboard a couple days ago to start with I was having posting issues with it not wanting to post but I managed to fix this by clearing the CMOS, however I was having some weird lag issues in insurgency and my FPS were all over the place so I decided to restart my PC but then steam crashed and wouldn't close. So I opened task manager to try close it that way and noticed my PC is using 7gb or ram with nothing open accept steam now to me this is not normal and I don't know the reason for this I am now starting to think the board is faulty as I didn't have any memory issues with my old board.

 

Any advice please guys?

 

Thanks

Does the Motherboard have anything Realtek in it? (Audio/LAN etc)... they are notorious for RAM leaking, try upgrading them.

What do you mean it's using 7gb with nothing open? Does the task manager show what's using it?

Yeah 7gb on the windows desktop with nothing open accept a minimized steam client.  It was only because of FPS issues in insurgency that brought it to my attention at the moment I am considering returning the motherboard as I have had nothing but issues since it arrived first with the posting issue now with this weird memory issue but all the other parts worked fine in my old board.

It's gone down a bit to around 6.5gb on idle but this is still high considering on my other PC I don't even hit 8gb whilst playing a game. post-179175-0-23674900-1453591907.jpg

It doesn't show any processes using weird amounts of memory?

Ok is this more helpful

I have checked and there doesn't seems to be anything using excessive memory my memory is also running at 2666mhz for some reason even though in the bios it is set to 2133mhz no idea what is going on which is why the only thing I can think of causing the issue is the new board.

I know this isn't relevant but wtf how much money do you make? Your computer is on steroids or some shit. Make a ram drive and do Nova Bench on it probably can get in the top 20.

64 gigs of ram is overkill unless you'll be using at ram drive. So you do that right?

 

7 gigs is perfectly fine there, windows uses a percentage for itself, I wouldn't be worried about 7 out of 64 gigs.

Roughly said- Windows in idle uses 15-20% of ram. More ram- more usage. If in some moment you have shortage of ram Windows will release some of these 7gigs, but with 64gigs this won't happens...

 

And it's good idea everyone to remember something- used ram is useful ram, empty ram is useless ram. In fact ram is fastest way to access something- I bet that with 7gigs used in idle PC runs very fast... Problem is ram management, not ram usage.

I got it down to 3gb by disabling windows 10 tips in the settings.

I use the PC for video editing and gaming I have only ran 3D mark and valley on it so far and it scored in the top 60 on 3d mark but in terms of real life performance rendering is super quick but im not impressed with the gaming performace I get good fps in games like gta v and star wars battlefront but other titles like insurgency and CS:GO i get worse fps than my old AMD 8320 and GTX770 PC with my old pc I use to get 64fps avg on insurgency with my new pc I only get 37 avg I tried disabling SLI and running the test again but it makes no difference I even considered downgrading to the 6700k due to poor performance with the 5960x but it cant be the gpu's or cpu as my performance wad great before i switched to the godlike motherboard.

This is why I don't buy MSI or ASrock. The not posting could be sign the board itself is faulty.

Why did you consider to downgrade to a 6700k? I know games work best on 4 cores and the 6700k has better single-core performance than the i7-5960X but you're taking down so much performance on rendering/video editing and other CPU-dependent workloads. It probably doesn't matter to you but it's also a waste of money. Don't even mess with the CPU for now, just return the motherboard and buy another one because the motherboard is probably faulty.
