  1. 16GB RAM @ 1600MHZ is too much load for the memory controller to handle. Use 6GB RAM @ 1600MHZ, and 12GB RAM @ 1333MHz.

    You should be able to downclock your ram to 1333Mhz through the bios, while with 12GB RAM, specially if you OC your CPU.
  2. oh k but in bios its already showing memory Performing at 1333mhz
    no i'havent OC my Cpu all performing at stock

    Perhaps you have to allocate more ram for 3ds max. You should be able to set the amount of ram you want to work through 3ds max settings.
  4. hmm u mean to say if i mention the amount of memory i want to work with in 3dsmax have nay idea where can i find tht setting actually ive done tht earlier i think soo like in f10 setting render setup i mentioned sm 8000 dynamic memory stilll....
    and one more question do u think for my system 400watt psu is ok? i mean is it fine with all powersupply coz nowday they show lot of psu of 1000watt actully while buying pc i didnt emphasize much on psu
  5. 400W is enough for your 9500GT -- which brand is your PSU?

  6. its local not branded i think so sm local brand 400 watts
  7. Unless your psu is dieing, then it is enough, despite of its brand, but some psu may even demage other pc parts.

    Anyway you have a nice rig, but you may need to upgrade your graphic card n psu for a more smootly work experience.
