  1. Hey guys, I'd like to ask what's normal RAM usage in win 8.1 in idle with no open apps. Thanks

    My Windows 10 ram used at idle is 14% Have you checked what your task manager says? Right-click on the start window in the bottom left. Select Task Manager to open it. I have 16GB of RAM installed

    Actually I wanted to close this thread but couldn't find an actual option to do it. Anyways I had an issue with too much RAM being used while in idle & no apps running. Then I realised I switched on rapid function on my samsung SSD and it apparently eats up gig to gig'n'half. BTW my rig has 16 gigs of ram but idle use is roughly 9%.
