You can set the max and min memory in the SQL System Mamagement console by going to the properties of the SQL Instance. (use SSMC to connect to your instance, right click the server and go to properties)
But by design, if you do not change anything, SQL uses all memory of the server anyway.

Same is true for CPU.

If you have a strong server with multiple cpu's and cores, you might want to consider configuring more than one Tempdb file to spread the load between the cpu's and cores.
