If I have an 8 core machine with a lot of RAM, what is best when trying to get the fastest performance for a large complex Fluid Sim?

Computing the Fluid Sim in one job on the machine and letting it multithread and calculate as best it can?

Splitting the Fluid Sim up into 8 smaller jobs and distributing one job per core on the one machine?

Splitting the Fluid Sim up into 4 smaller jobs and giving each job two cores?

Has anyone tried such tests?
