The server has only 12GB RAM, so how are you getting to 16GB? You'll be using pagefile/swap which is super slow.
For only having 12GB RAM, you should not be exceeding the base player count of 8. If you had 16GB RAM, you could probably go to 12 or 16 players.
I'm curious to know where you're getting this 12GB of ram information from? He mentioned 16GB of ram, then mentioned upgrading to 128GB of ram.
