Default Tophat help: how to maximize CPU performance

We have got a huge amount of RNAseq data and we would like to optimize/maximize the performance of our computer (wisely use the computer resources to speed up assembly step).
Any suggestions for this?
I know there is -p/num-threads for Tophat, how to use it and what is your suggestion for our CPU and memory?
2 X 2.93 GHz 6-Core Intel Xeon
24GB 1333MHz DDR3
Thanks a lot!
