Allocating more hardware to Zbrush

Hi all, curious question here.
I have a new PC with an i7, SSD and 16gb Memory.
I'm using Zbrush and it can sub-divide loads more then it could previously, however it's still occasionally slowing down under stress.
Though when I take a look at my task monitor / performance tab, hardly anything is being used.
Has Zbrush got some defaults on only using a certain amount of hardware and can I give it some more to play with? Or is it just because it's 32bit and I'm asking it to do a lot?

Cheers

Jason.

ZB will only use 4gb of RAM since it is 32 bit if your using a 64bit ver of win 7.

You can give it more processing power by going to task manager and click on the applications tab, then right click on zBrush, left click on "go to process".

From there right click on zBrush.exe*32 and left click on "set priority" and select High or above high or what ever gives you an extra boost.

I hope it helps.
