Dear Mariella,

As per some recent discussions about Intel 2017 on this discussion forum, it looks like some bug(s) existing in MKL 2017.1.143.  The compiler and MPI library in this release appear to be OK, but you will need to use a previous MKL version.  I don’t know if you have had successful Intel builds before, but there are several files which need to be compiled a lower optimisation to work around compiler.  There are a set of arch files which are known to be working with the CP2K trunk available via the CP2K dashboard - see e.g. http://cp2k-www.epcc.ed.ac.uk/phi/psmp/regtest-arch (linked from http://dashboard.cp2k.org
