Memory leaks on After Effects after changing RAM

After changing my RAM (32Gbs) for 2 sticks of the exact same model and using After Effects, even when the memory other apps were allowed to use was over 10Gbs and they were barely using 3Gbs, After Effects just kept using more and more memory until it couldn't anymore and failed to allocate any more memory, the only way I am able to continuously work on a project is by constantly freeing up memory using MSI center's tools.
I doubt it is a problem with my memory, but I can never be too sure, is there any way to fix this?

Specifications
Windows 11 Version 23H2 (0S Build 22631.3672)
After Effects (244.1)

CPU: AMD Ryzen 7 5800X3D 8-Core Processor

Motherboard: MPG B550 GAMING PLUS (MS-7C56)

GPU: NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060

Memory: Corsair Vengeance LPX DDR4 2x16Gb

The problem occurs on any project I work on.
The expected behaviour is for After Effects to not keep filling up my memory without getting rid of unused memory.

If AE is not adherring to the memory limits set, this may be due to the plugins you're using holding on to memory that AE can't release. We'd need to see a project and composition to help further.

To ensure optimal performance, I highly recommend developing the routine practice of regularly clearing memory and disk cach

 

in my case, I prefer not to go to the edit menu and select purge all memory, So i have created a custom keyboard shortcut . A huge time saver
