I Installed 16 G.B.RAM in my P.C.to work in 3ds max.  but while rendering or while working in high polygon models its using only 2.57 to 3.89 GB out of 16 GB RAM. some times because of high poly models my files got crushed.., pls can any body suggest me To increase memory (RAM) Usage in 3ds max 2010x64 installed in windows 7 64bit. Really i am very much upset with this.., while rendering also  its taking nearly 5 hours for the size of 800X600 with very low pixels. 

 

I am using the following system:

 

AMD FX(tm)-4100 Quad Core processer   3.60GHz

16GB RAM

WINDOWS 7 64-bit OS

NVIDIA GeForce GT 630 4GB

HARD DRIVE 1TB

The software will use what it needs: AFAIK you cannot spoon-feed it more that it can use. Sorry.

Is your PC a single-processor (it appears to be but I thought I swould ask)?

Having a bigger bucket doesn't make it fill with water any faster.  It just means fewer trips.  High quality renders and lots of frames require a lot of time to render.  Depending on the number of frames you are rendering, level of detail, lighting, and so on, 5 hours could well be justified.
