I’m running Blender 2.65a 64 bit on my Win. 7 Pro 64 bit PC.
I decided to upgrade the RAM from 12 GB to 24 GB (the max. my i7 970 CPU can handle) in order to bake at higher resolutions.
The problem I’m having is:
It’s as if Blender (or maybe Windows) is still only using 12 GB of RAM.
If I increase the resolution to a higher value than before the upgrade (about 8 GB) Blender crashes.
Both the BIOS and Windows are listing 24 GB of installed RAM.
Motherboard: Asus Rampage III Black Edition
CPU: i7 970 3.2GHz 6 core
RAM: 24 GB Corsair Vengeance CMZ12GX3M3A1600C9 (two kits of 3x4 GB)
