Berendsen does not generate the correct energy distribution but eliminates
fluctuations faster than v-rescale. That's why it is usually used during
You might want to switch to v-rescale for your production run (I'm not
sure, but the mdp files you got from charmm-gui probably already use
v-rescale for the production run).
