Cons

  • Didn't speed up my PC

Bottom Line

Given that MaxMem's free — and that it uninstalled cleanly from our tester PC — you might want to give it a try. As the saying goes, your mileage may vary.

Would you buy this?

In that way, it says, MaxMem ensures that your PC and programs get the maximum amount of memory they need, for top performance. "It says...?" asks the sceptical reader. Read on.

MaxMem monitors your system, and when your free memory reaches a certain low threshold, it automatically frees up memory. You can set the thresholds, and also tell the program how aggressive it should be about managing your memory.

There's a fair amount of controversy over whether programs like MaxMem really work or are needed, because Windows over the years has gotten much better at memory management than it used to be.

In my tests, we didn't find that the program sped up my PC, which is a Quad Core PC running at 2.4GHz and with 2GB of RAM. And when we told the program to use its aggressive mode, the situation worsened: our programs became slow and unresponsive.

However, MaxMem may perform differently from PC to PC.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
