I would not recommend it. It is mainly for 64bit systems. Even more so when you only have 4Gb of RAM.

So, I was struggling with reaching my VRAM limit (3GB) and had to downgrade most of my 4K textures to 2K (ugh). After that, I actually hit the 3.1GB memory limit.

I gave up XIG from Xfire and decided to use ENBoost, which let me load my test save that went over the memory limit just by being loaded (800MB after loading with ENBoost).

Unfortunately, ENBoost causes MASSIVE stuttering because it keeps discarding my VRAM due to it reaching the limit. I've tried fiddling with the memory values/compression, but there doesn't seem to be any noticeable changes made from adjusting them; looking around is just the worst stuttering mess I've ever seen.

So, I seem to be at a brick wall.

Is there any way to force ENBoost to use more system memory and less VRAM?

If not, then I guess I really have to disable some mods; but unfortunately I've gone through my mod list 3 times over and don't see anything else I'm comfortable with disabling. If anyone wants to look over my mod list and tell me anything that is either unneeded or unnessesary nowadays (I've been building up mods since Skyrim's release to finally play it through for the first time) then it'd be appreciated:


System specs if relevant:

In this case, your system specs are more vital then your load order.

Trust that I have a high end system capable of what I'm doing.. or at least would be if NVIDIA didn't half-ass their enthusiast cards and consistently have less VRAM on them than AMD.

Still, added to post.  Would be in sig, but I don't see an option for it in the CP.  Seems to have appeared after I posted, unless I'm being an idiot.

Try 512Mb for the first one. And set the other to either 8Gb or 10Gb (Values in Mb ofc). Your system should be able to handle that. For systems with large amounts of RAM this fixes much of the stuttering. Let me know how that works out.

Is the 3.1 crash 3.1GB of VRAM or 3.1GB of RAM? Sorry I've been getting conflicting reports. I heard it was RAM, not VRAM.

3.1GB of System RAM. They're talking about a fix through ENB (and how to configure said post processor for max efficiency) which keeps the game from loading 3.1GB in System RAM.
