Hi All,

Im trying to run a solution on a electronics cabinet with multi solid and fluid regions.

I have tried to apply as course a mesh as possible, which has come out at around 1.5million elements. Going from rule of thumb of 0.5Gb per 1 million, I should only need 0.75Gb memory.

I have 4Gb in my machine, but when I come to the solver (CFX 12) is crashes with the error of memory issues before even reaching iteration 1

any ideas?
