    Why doesn't the flow solver utilize more of my computer resources?

      Hi Everybody,

      I run flow simulations quite frequently. I am surprised that the solver doesn’t use more resources from my machine.  When running a simulation it will typically use around 40% of my processing power and under 5 gigs of ram.  Are there any settings I can change to increase system utilization?  Below you’ll find a screen shot of my task manager during a typical solve.  I wouldn’t mind if Flow pegged out my CPU and used as much ram as I have available because this system is used solely for simulations.  Any insight would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks!
