Is there a way

(I'm greedy!) ......to devote more memory by some method in Windoze to work with the Calibre program? I'm still only utilizing about 4 Gigs of 16 Gigs available. The program, Calibre, is working perfectly, but I was dismayed that it still didn't take full advantage of available RAM. Don't get me wrong, it is working more efficiently with the 64-bit program than with the 32-bit program, rendering more efficiently than before, but my CPU fan sounds like an Airforce C-130 going down the strip for take-off when I'm converting books from whatever file type to *.mobi if I am doing it in bulk. I add 10-30 books a day to an already huge library; so it does make a difference to me. I have a bottleneck somewhere within the program (Calibre), my OS or system that isn't allowing the RAM to be fully utilized with Calibre.

2.90 gigahertz AMD Athlon II X4 635
512 kilobyte primary memory cache
2048 kilobyte secondary memory cache
64-bit ready
Multi-core (4 total)
Not hyper-threaded

15616 Megabytes Usable Installed Memory

Slot 'DIMM1' has 4096 MB (serial number 2A2C2227)
Slot 'DIMM2' has 4096 MB (serial number 09C62207)
Slot 'DIMM3' has 4096 MB (serial number 09D32206)
Slot 'DIMM4' has 4096 MB (serial number 0A18220B)

Windows 7 Professional (x64) Service Pack 1 (build 7601)

I've been looking at adding a more high-end cooler to my CPU, and that will help, I'm sure, with the overheating problem, but I'd still like to be a little smarter concerning how to use available RAM. If one of you 'shure-'nuff' gurus out there have some good information that would help, I'd surely appreciate your advice. It will be properly perused, considered, and implemented with results supplied under this post.

I thank you in advance,




Dean
