    ntoskrnl.exe use about 10Gbyte ram - why?


    Greetings.
    After installing windows 8.1 from scratch on my new mobo, gigabyte G1.sniper z97, I realised that ntoskrnl.exe is using from 8,8 to 10Gbyte ram. Why is this? How do I make this file using less ram?
    I have installed all the newest drivers from Gigabytes website.

    I have 16 Gbyte ram in my PC, so not much left to games

    Are you sure BIOS settings are correct and have you tested the RAM?

    Post a screenshot showing the problem. A screenshot of Task manager -Performance tab would also be useful.

    RAM is testet, and it is reused from earlier build. I don't know where in BIOS I can look for something that can give this massive ram-problem. Any clues?

    TIA
