Hi Guys,

I was wondering what might be the best and most realistic way to use Aquarium with some older hardware?

I have a core i5 2500k overclocked to 3.3Ghz and 16GB of DDR3 RAM. I'll be utilizing for correspondence chess and to help build a solid opening repertoire. I know with this fairly basic computing power that I can't go hog wild but some advice on parameters or techniques that may help get the most of the hardware would be much appreciated.

Many thanks, Stu

For automatic tree expansion using IDEA I think it would be best for you to pick whatever engine you are going to use for analysis, set the number of threads to 1 in the Engine Properties window, then set the number of instances to 3 in the IDEA Engines window.
This gives you 3 engines to work with (1 per processor core), and leaves 1 core for running Aquarium itself and everything else your computer is doing.

If you are going to use it for Infinite Analysis ("Normal Analysis"), of a given position by having the engine go deeper and deeper over time, then set the number of threads to 3 in the Engine properties window and run 1 thread of analysis.
