If I increase the dt of mdp file , how does it affect to the final results?

I have a system containing around 70 000 atoms. It is found that it takes a lot of time to complete the MD production run with dt = 0.002 (2 fs) in mdp file. If I change dt value, will it affect the simulation results badly?

Here post your question

You can’t arbitrarily increase the time step. The simulation will become unstable. There are approaches that involve virtual sites or redistribution of H masses that can allow for an increase in time step but you need to look into those carefully and no just increase dt.

Thank you for your advice !
