Setup 12-core with Q-master

I got a 12-core, very excited.
What's the best way to setup Q-master to use all 12 cores?

You won't want to use all 12 cores, from what I've read the rule of thumb is about half the number of cores you have. You also want to make sure you have 1GB of ram per core.

What about the no. of threads? It says 24, so I should only use 12 threads?

To be honest, I'm not sure. I've only ever adjusted the number of cores. Here is an article on it. http://www.kenstone.net/fcp_homepage/compressor_multi_cores_stitzer.html

Is it worth using other networked computers' cores?
Don't they take longer bc it's pulling the content to render from the main computer that is rendering as well?

I haven't used other networked computers, but I that may be more trouble than it is worth. I have read that Qmaster can be shaky, sometimes my virtual cluster shows up, sometimes it doesn't.
