HP Z8 Workstation After Effects CC Settings

Hello to everyone.
I bought a new and powerful workstation PC. I want to use this power in After Effects. Can you help me with the settings in After Effects?
What should be the settings especially in previewing and rendering?
With this PC, I'll prepare 8K and 16K projects and get renderings.
Thank you.

That's a monster computer. Unfortunately, Ae won't make the best use of it.

I suggest you take a look at Mekajiki RenderGarden, which will allow you to run multiple instances of the After Effects renderer at the same time for your final outputs:

Dear Walter,
Thank you for the answer.
But I don't use this computer only for After Effects.
I bought Rendergarden. But I haven't used it yet.

Regards,
