I'm on windows 10, with a Nvidia 1070 (Samsung VRAM)

Whenever I play any games that takes up a lot of system RAM, I would have to close all other applications.


If I do not, I would notice the Nvidia driver will crash whenever my system ram reaches 85% full. I have resource monitor on my other monitor, and this is 100% repeatable.


As long as my applications do not take up 85% my driver will not crash. Also, long time ago i moved my paging files from C(ssd) to anther drive(hdd).



Anyone have a clue why this is happening?


My drivers are up to date except, BIOS (nothing new from asus's change logs), and GPU (due to people saying the new drivers from Nvidia are artifacting).
