NAMD on dual quad-core Xeon's with Infiniband backbone

Hi all,
I've searched the message board and the wiki for posts on running NAMD on dual-quad core Xeon systems with an Infiniband backbone, however haven't found much data. I'm currently running the Linux-i686 build and in the process of compiling the source code to see if this speeds things up at all. I was wondering if anyone out there has tried running NAMD on a similar system, and if so what was your methodology for maximizing performance, and what type of scaling do you observe.
Thanks in advance,
