How do you check how much RAM skyrim is using?
I use this mod.

really? RAM yeah and i dunno about shadows, but my biggest problem was mods that added spawns. it's like the engine can't handle the extra AI and pathing
6GB VRAM is not likely to be any use for Skyrim. It seems that the textures in VRAM must be copied into RAM. Skyrim cannot use more than 4GB RAM, and seems to become unstable even at 3GB.
I have experimented with ugrids quite a bit, though it is not recommended. My experience suggests that the two key factors in ugrids stability are RAM usage and shadows. I can run stable with ugrids at 9, so long as I reduce my mod load to keep RAM usage comfortably below 3GB, reduce shadow settings, and avoid mods that are likely to increase the number of shadows processed.
The question of shadows is just my theory from my own testing, and should be considered anecdotal, but the memory concerns are widely reported.
