    I noticed that there's multiple instances of chrome. Is that a normal amount of Chrome?

    Try using something like Tab Hibernation, Chrome can be a bit of a memory hog.

    Seems rather odd chrome using nearly 8 gigs of memory for 7 tabs though! I've downloaded the plugin Corky lets hope this helps...

    Perhaps a memory leak issue somewhere? Chrome is using ~100MB of my RAM on these forums.

    The amount of memory used for each tab depends on the web site, complicated sites, heavily flash based, lots of images, etc, etc.

    If you are interested in a more detailed view of the RAM being used, you could try using Chromes inbuilt taskmanager (Shift-Esc) Or you could take a look at the "chrome://memory-redirect/" page by typing that in the address bar.

    I would d/load Process Hacker it shows more info about what programs/services/processes are running and detailed memory usage, you can also see network activity in real time and any programs that are online and using resources that shouldn't be like malware.

    ^+1, I think I actually used process explorer for the BF4/AMD leak but I can't remember how i did it. If it's guaranteed to happen every time you start your PC, do a full shutdown and not a W8 shutdown. At least for me with my memory leak, a W8 shutdown would not give it back.

    How many add-ons do you have on chrome, people have been having problems with some add-ons or having many and using a lot of memory.

    Solved!

    Seems that removing all the addons i had for web dev stuff made it completely stop memory's between 20 and 30% now so running like a dream :)
