Odd memory problems

Hello when i play CE for long periods of time, the memory usage grow up nearly to 16gb, its starts with 9gb approx, and in after several hours it escalates to the max. Its is strange because since january 2021 i have played long preiods with no problems. When the problem occurs the performance drops considerable, and i need to close CE, wait he leaves the memory and then start over. My machine is and old i7 3770k with 16gb and a GTX 1060 6 gb. I run with most of settings on ultra or high and got between 30 and 60 fps (dependind of the surroundings). Except by buing a new hardware, is there anything i could do to minimize the problem? (downgrading of settings had no effect) Did someone experienced similar problem? Thanks in Advance.

You shouldn’t have to get a new rig or upgrade, with the exception of the chipset I’ve got that as my secondary gaming PC. If Windows hasn’t prompted you to diagnose your memory, I’m less likely to believe it’s a physical problem. However, please try the Windows Memory Diagnostics Tool first to ensure there is not an issue with your physical memory. I can’t link it, because your appropriate download is version-specific, and country-specific.

If you find no issues, please proceed to Step 2.

STEP 2: Wiping Your Windows Swap File

  1. Right-Click Windows Logo and click System
  2. In the right column, click Advanced System Settings
  3. Click the Advanced tab
  4. Under Performance… click Settings
  5. Click the Advanced tab
  6. Under Virtual Memory click Change…
  7. Take a screen grab of this info by pressing Shift + Print Screen on your keyboard. Paste this image into Paint for easy reference.
  8. Uncheck the box “Automatically manage paging file size for all drives”
  9. Click the radio button that says “No paging file.” Click Set. Click OK.
  10. Reboot your computer. IT WILL TAKE MUCH LONGER TO BOOT. This is normal.

STEP 3. Create A Custom Paging File

Follow 1-6 above. Proceed to Step 9 here.
7. Click Custom size:
8. Initial size 11744 | Maximum size 11744
9. Click Set. Click OK.
10. Reboot your PC.
11. Test-play Conan.
