I do a similar thing, win 7, but only 2 (of 6) cores
... and I only just realised last weekend 2GB RAM - yes 2G - and it was still really responsive.

one item that does (did) slow it down (even with more RAM) is the background updater
c:\program files (x86)\microsoft visual studio\installer\resources\app\servicehub\services\microsoft.visualstudio.setup.service\backgrounddownload.exe
(- with the network blocked it 'self-fixes' that by firing off even more instances Confused | :confused: )

Anyway I renamed that file (i.e. ".exe" -> ".noexe") and likewise only change the name back when I open the network for it to check/do updates.

finally there's also an autostart service "Visual Studio Standard Collector Service 150"
vs works absolutely fine without it (connected or no), seemingly does nothing ....
comments indicate it can be a memory hog
- I dislike useless baggage, akin to carrying a 'spare' tin of pink [house] roof paint in the car when your house's roof is concrete tiles.
- "150" ????


set that service to disabled (and then just stop it, no reboot required.)
after many otherwise intelligent sounding suggestions that achieved nothing the nice folks at Technet said the only solution was to low level format my hard disk then reinstall my signature. Sadly, this still didn't fix the issue!
