# Re: [lammps-users] temp doesnt increase during equilibration

I'm thinking that it is a problem with your temperature time constant. Nosé-Hoover thermostats can take a long time to equilibrate. Try reducing the time constant to something smaller.

Dear team,

I am trying to equilibrate my system at 300 k and 0 bar, my system is starting at high pressure so I relaxed my box at 0 k and used nve/lim to control the pressure. When I tried to raise the temperature to 300 k I found that the max temp reached was 30 k. May I ask what would be the reason for that?

Thank you Stefan for your help.

so how can i know if there are atoms not moving?
