The answer depends a LOT on your setup.

Are you doing this in explicit or implicit solvent ?

My group has a couple of papers out (listed in my web page) where we
show that you should try to exchange as often as you can. Basically,
nstlim should be as small as you can make it. There is a cost associated
with exchanges, so you should benchmark for nstlim=5, 10,100, for your

You want to use the SMALLEST value of nstlim that does not make your
simulation (ns/day) slower.
