Circumstancial "insufficient memory" error.

Since headstart, I've noticed that after the client has been running for a while it will be susceptible to terminating with an "insufficient memory" error, even if the amount of RAM in the system is better than the minimum system requirements. I personally suspect a memory leak or an unusual spike depending on the circumstances.

So far I've experienced this when:
1. Opening the map screen in Sylvan Woods Trail and then moving to another map. I don't know if this is coincidence but I had this happen at least twice, maybe three times on this same map. The client data seems to be in order there because a repair didn't find anything out of the ordinary.
2. After 30-60 minutes in maps with a lot of activity. Somewhat to be expected as this would cause spikes in memory usage, combined with extra stress on the CPU.
3. Randomly after roughly 6 hours of runtime in Queenstown ch1 during a low traffic period. May resemble more of a memory leak.

I do have a bunch of services that ran on startup disabled due to an earlier issue with the MS2 client, and I have tried closing a couple things I'm not using while MS2 is running but it hasn't made much of a difference. In the meantime I'm just running resource monitor and keeping an eye on how much RAM is being used total as well as how much the client is using up. At this moment I don't think there's much else I can do to fix the problem on my end.

I've pasted relevant dxdiag info below for reference:

    For you having 16k it shouldn't be a problem, I would recommend checking
    1. Control Panel and see if ram usage is being used up severely.
    2. It might not support the amount of ram that your computer has, which would be super weird, I have 8k less memory and I haven't ran into a problem like that.
    3. Does this happen to you all the time in MS2? Or does it happen in other games as well?

    Someone elsewhere on the forum mentioned that the game's RAM usage spiked up to 15GB. There's also been some people with more RAM than me saying they've had this pop up before. Right now I've had it running for a couple of hours and it's okay to say the least. I've got my resource monitor running; MS2's using up close to 3GB which is okay for what the minimum specs give it and in total I'm running at about 54% total memory with OS and other open applications at the time.

    Also RAM is RAM. Not supporting a stick of RAM would be something at the hardware level such as having the wrong specifications. (ex. using a DDR4 stick on a mobo that requires DDR3, etc...) If it were an issue with the stick being supported by my hardware itself it would be noticable.

    This only happens with MS2 in my case. Memory is not an issue with anything else. That's kinda why I suspect it to be an issue with the game's optimization and not with my own setup.
