Excessive Physical Memory Utilization

I have two identical servers with the same configuration as follows;

1) Windows 2008 Server x64 - Standard Edition R2
2) SQL Server 2005 Standard Edition
3) 12 GB of RAM

These are brand new DELL servers. For both of the servers, I keep getting PHYSICAL MEMORY UTILIZATION of 97% and a COMMIT MEMORY of 55% during OFF PEAK hours.
This is the issue with no load on the servers as well.

Any specific reason what might be causing this issue OR should I be concerned of these high utilization rates...thanks for your response.

97% means 11.6GB, which can be fully normal on db servers.
unless you tell sql server instance to limit itself (max memory config), for example to 11000 mb, it will continue to use all it can.
or you switch of that warning ....
