Hi Jonathan,

With regards to your question on K-points, as far as I am aware K-points 
are still a little "misbehaved" in CP2K (they're a relatively new feature 
to the code, having only been introduced a couple of years ago). To the 
best of my knowledge, right now the most common practice is to use a single 
gamma-point and increase the number of repeated unit cells instead, until 
you get a good resolution in your reciprocal space.

James Dean
