How to measure regular RAM controller load (equivalent to GPU-Z memory controller load)

This is only tangentially-related to GPU-Z but I'm wondering whether there is an equivalent software to measure the memory controller for regular system RAM? CPU-Z does not have a sensor tab. I'd like to determine what is bottlenecking performance during preview playback in a video-editing program (CPU, GPU load and vram load below 25%).

taskmanager monitors System RAM usage(perf mon) ... but im not sure im clear on what your asking here.

Hi. I'm not looking for memory usage. I'm looking for memory controller load. I think it's a (huge, obviously) system of transistors that are involved in passing data between the memory and GPU.

I am unaware of such monitoring software. I know there are performance analysis tools for software development that get you more explicit logs but that's probably not what you are looking for.

If I were you I would download "open hardware monitor" that will most likely be your best bet at finding something along those lines if it exists

im guessing it wont be the same as a GPU's memory controller, since the System Memory controller is located in the CPU itself, that may be why it is different, but im Far from an expert
