I recently upgraded to 12GB of RAM on two different machines and I was wondering how I should change my settings to get super fast rendering. Thank guys.

You haven't mentioned anything useful such as what kind of processor is in these machines, what operating system you're using, or even what version of After Effects you're using.

Other useful info could include what other programs you plan to use while you're running AE, hard drive info (how many, what size, in a RAID?), and more.

That being said, look here.

also, watching the cpu processes in task manager (win) or activity monitor (osx) or similar utility while rendering will help to tell you how well your system is configured for the kinds of comps that you render.

that way, as you make changes to mp & memory settings you can view the cpu levels to see how those changes impact processing directly.
