View Full Version : How to utilize RAM usage to increase system performance?

03-20-2015, 12:06 PM

Well, that is my question. I have 16GB of RAM and 80% of RAM is just sitting there doing nothing. I know many ways how to lower RAM usage, but I don`t know how can I convince the operating system (Windows 8.1) to use more RAM, to increase overall performance.

Please help & thanks in advance.

If your OS recognizes 16GB of RAM then it will use 16GB of RAM when it needs to. If it isn't stuck recognizing a smaller amount or generating memory-related error codes then there's no problem. You just happen to have more RAM than you really need.

If you insist on "filling it up" then you could allocate memory towards RAM Disk(s) or RAM Caches. Or just start loading it up with running programs.
