7.5gb used in total including everything else thats running ?
or just by adobe?
dont think cas 9 or cas 10 would be much different--same as going over 1600mhz doesnt really gain much on newer intel
platforms though it costs a fair bit more
Adobe allows you to set the amount of RAM allocated to everything else. On a system with 8 GB, the default setting is 2 GB I believe--this is also the minimum allowed.
So on my system. Adobe is using the full 6 GB that I have allocated to it (which is the most permitted). It is definitely thirsty for more, but I am not sure how much more.
Cas 9 or 10 would be ok with OC?
