Ab initio failure

HI all,
i am trying to run Ab initio jobs but somehow it crashes along the way. if i ask for 1 or 2 ab initio model no issue, it works. but 3 and above the job starts fine, create the right number of model sand they look Ok until a certian number of iteration where it starts to get worse then finaly fail with teh following error
[CPU: 1.84 GB Avail: 250.70 GB]
Traceback (most recent call last):

assert n.all(n.isfinite(ret))

we are running cryosparc 4.5.1

I’ve run into this before, but only with non-standard parameters or unusual datasets. Is this happening with default params, on otherwise well-behaved datasets?

Yes standard parameters but dataset is average, relatively thick ice as particle is 55nm , contains 1M urea, 200kV, so you can imagine signal to noise could be better ! ctf fit is not great, on average 6A.
The maps goes to 4.8A.
One of the things I don’t get is why when selecting different number of models the output is either fine or crashes
