    What should I set my pagefile to after upgrading my ram?


    Topic, What is the minimum size I should set my pagefile too so that I won't run into any problems? Currently I have 8 gb of ram and tomorrow I plan to add another 8 gb for 16 Gb total. DDR4 2133mhz if your curious what type or if that even matters. My Os is on a SSD so when it has to use the pagefile the write process takes forever due to how poorly my ssd seems to be able to write to itself. According to the software that came with the ssd all the firmware etc is up to date, and I run trim weekly as well.

    Any tips on what I should maybe set it too? or how to improve my ssd's write ability if thats even possible. Its especally bad when decompressing files.

    Download and run: Download AS SSD Benchmark - MajorGeeks and post result. Let's see how fast/slow it is.

    Any idea what I can do about it? I had a feeling its write was really akwardly low as my old standart HDD can actually write faster.

    Could be because of SATA _ AHCI drivers for MB.

    How would I go about checking that? If it helps its a MSI b250 Pc Mate motherboard.
