Guess he's already using the OUTER_SCF..

I think you can gain something or switching to MINIMIZER CG for OT or  
using FULL_ALL as preconditioner:

           MINIMIZER CG
           ENERGY_GAP 0.001

ENERGY_GAP : it should be an underestimate of the gap (0.001 doing  
normally fine).

In your case, since it should be liquid silicon you may want to  
change properly this value..
