Windows 7: Limit RAM Cache?

22 Feb 2013   #31

Windows 7 Home Premium x64
 
 

I'm back here again, exactly one year later with the same problem. 0mb of RAM is free, and over 4,500 cached.

Following applications are open:
  • Firefox 19.0
  • iTunes 11.0.1
  • Teamspeak 3.0.9
  • Windows Task Manager
  • World of Tanks Client (Video Game)
I'm having difficulty watching YouTube videos, playing video games, and even browsing the web at times. Windows 7 is managing my Physical Memory very poorly, and I'm not sure if there is any new methods to avoid this problem?

Ignore the "Free" field it is meaningless. The only important value is "Available"
Open Resource Monitor and give us a screen shot of the Memory tab with the Physical Memory pane open. While you are running your game.

Available memory doesn't become relevant until it becomes Free. Which is my issue.

Available is free RAM! It signifies what RAM is available to applications without having to page anything out. The standby (cache) memory is not your problem. Something else is involved here. Which is why I asked you for a screen shot of the problem area which you have yet to provide.

"Available" includes "Free" and "Standby."

Unless you managed to come across some crazy Windows 7 bug that no one knows about, your alleged problem is not because of the Standy SuperFetch cache, even if you mistakenly think it is.
