Hi everyone, I recently bought a computer to handle hd video editing and rendering better than my previous one. However, I notice that it still is not rendering at speeds I believe it should be capable of. Any tips to speed things up? The following are my computer specs:

h9-1420t Intel
• Windows 8 64
• 3rd Generation Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-3770 quad-core processor [3.4GHz, 8MB Shared Cache]
• 3GB Nvidia GeForce GT640 [DVI, HDMI and VGA via adapter]
• 16GB DDR3-1600MHz SDRAM [2 DIMMs]
• 2TB 7200RPM SATA RAID 5 (3 x 1TB HDD)
• No secondary hard drive

Here are some things I've tried for speeding this up:

-I keep my source footage on a second partition of my internal hard drive
-I have enabled multiprocessing in AE and toyed around with how much ram to allocate to each core
-I have tried using shift to deactivate the previews during rendering
-I've disabled the video thumbnail in the project media window
-I never run any other applications when rendering
-I have enabled GPU processing


Can anyone think of something else, or do you see any obvious mistakes I'm making??

At first you should take a look at the task manager. Is the CPU working at 100%? How much RAM (physical) is being used? Did you try out a SSD?

And also important: What components did your old computer have?
I moved from an Intel Q9550 with 8GB RAM to an Intel i7 3770K with 32GB RAM and it really made a huge difference...

The cpu is running at 100% but only about 15% of my ram is being used. My old computer was simply just a standard 2011 Macbook Pro i7 with 16gb of ram.

Don't think that you need to see all of your RAM used all of the time. If the CPUs are at 100% and the RAM usage is at 15%, then this just happens to be a rendering task that is not RAM-intensive.

Follow the link that I provided earlier, and read/watch the resources that it points to. For example, this video introduces the idea of bottlenecks in processing, which is relevant to what I just said above:
