A gameWhat's the Java application that's running?
It was perfectly fine a few months ago, I could do this without bumping into any issues / complaintsMaybe you're just expecting too much from your PC. Assuming everything running in those screenshots is an expected/legitimate application, you have a lot going on in the background.
As strange as this sounds, but this happened around the time I got a new RAM stick. It's compatible and worked perfectly fine but the ram slot became faulty after a few months, that's when my computer started performing a bit worse as well. I don't know what caused it, but both RAM sticks still work, I just simply have 1 stored away for the time being. Is this information useful in any way?Sorry, I'm out of ideas then. If a clean install didn't fix it and you're not overheating, I really don't know. All I can suggest is to try and think of anything that might have changed back when you first noticed the issue. E.g. you updated a driver or something.
I heard 3 short beeps when I tried to restart my pc at some point: "Memory failure in the first 64 KB of RAM: Likely a bad RAM IC"When you say the memory slot became faulty, how did you determine that? Or are you just speculating that the source of your issues may be that the a RAM slot may be faulty?
I don't think I changed anything regarding the RAM configurationsWhat was your previous memory configuration before you added the new RAM stick?
It really was fine even before I had another RAM stickRunning in single channel is suboptimal, I thick it could maybe it could cause the PC to feel a bit slower/laggier. But if you only had one stick in there previous to the upgrade and everything ran fine then that wouldn't explain it.
I also only just realized you were talking about CPU-Z's infoDoes the ram utilization persist after booting your computer into safe mode?

It seems fine now, but it'll change again in a few hours, like alwaysThe next step is to disable non microsoft services, restart your computer and see if the memory issue is still corrected.
Honestly, this is the only thing I haven't tried yetIf it is, then re-enable each service one at a time until you see the memory problem replicate again. This will help you determine which service is causing the irregular memory utilization.
Got it, chefIn the search bar type "msconfig" without quotes, then select the services tab.
Check off the box "Hide all Microsoft services", then select Disable all.
Hit Apply/Ok then click reboot your computer when prompted.
I hope not lolWouldn't it be funny if the service is Java. Uninstall that first lol.
