Finally broke down and purchased K13.  Curious to see the different analysis between K10 and K13.  A few questions.

I have a six core processor with hyperthreading.  Using half the RAM for hash tables.

1. Is MCTS enabled by default?
2. What are the preferred engine settings?  Per the ReadMe.Txt I should set six threads.  I assume that is based on one instance of the engine.  So for IDeA analysis should I have one instance of K13 with six threads running or should I have 12 instances of K13 with one thread each running?

Thank you.

Nope... you need to click the box to turn on MCTS

For IDEA, you should always use one thread per instance of the engine. (this is the basic, accepted method. Of course, as with everything else in Aquarium, there are no hard and fast rules).

Note: If you have a 6 core machine, it would not recommend more than 10 instances of any engine. This will allow 2 threads to handle things like system processes and the Aquarium GUI.

Fantastic.  Thank you!

Wow, I scrolled through the engine personality setting looking for an option to turn MCTS on/off.  Didn't see it the first few times.  Doh.
