Varnish 3 - thread_pools

By the book, the thread_pools should be 2. However the server is multi-processed(8 cpus) and can handle more thread_pools.
This server handles more than 5000 requests/sec. So, I found the thread_pool_max should be around 1000 and up to 5000.

Is it a good ideia increasing the thread_pools to 8 and decreasing the thread_pool_max?
Or, what's the best config for a server with 8 cpus and 32GB ram.
