How much RAM do you use? I picked up a 32GB kit stupid cheap when I built the render box. Shoved in one 8GB module for testing and never got around to installing the others.August 20, 2013 at 8:26 pm #69083LapinoplMember
About 40 min after boot:
Out of 8GB 1 is used as integrated GPU memory (a10-5800k) and yes, I’m playing games on that calculator:PAugust 20, 2013 at 9:03 pm #69084linuxgnuruParticipant
Granted; this is with me running Minecraft (which I told to use 4GB at most).

This is idle I should do some optimization but what the hell 16GB more than enough.August 21, 2013 at 6:56 am #69095kloinkaParticipant
Is the “big
carRAM, small penis” idea based on freud’s studies?August 21, 2013 at 8:01 am #69099Pedro MateusKeymasterAugust 21, 2013 at 2:34 pm #69102
Damn. Ima quit with the ‘Abacus’ jokes…

Seems we’re all 8GB+. Now, when was the last time you hit SWAP?August 21, 2013 at 10:11 pm #69109FrojoeKeymaster
Man, I don’t even provision swap anymore. If I have an application that requires a swap file, I just dd one into /dev/shm.August 21, 2013 at 10:34 pm #69110
I would totally do that if I had the RAM for it. Even with 4, I have only seen swap get hit maybe TWICE… and then it was only a few measly megs. Swap partitions were needed during a time when it was a necessity, but hardware has changed so much it seems almost antique. (for desktops I mean, you get into server virtualization, and that’s a whole other story.)August 21, 2013 at 10:36 pm #69111
And my last post was too serious… so go pole vault off a donkey dick.August 22, 2013 at 12:49 am #69116z1lt0idMember
If I was to follow the rules regarding a SWAP partition I would need to make it 64GB And the main reason why I have that much is once upon a time I had to use After Effects for a video game project and that thing eats RAM. But the Windows partition has gone since then.
@Sore_Loser: I demand even less serious, maybe even less cohesive.
