I recommend 8 inches as well and I documented the diminishing returns on insulating about ten years ago. I set a furnace at a floating temp with fixed settings. I kept adding insulation and the temps kept going up with the fuel input constant. After eight inches, it stopped changing. It didn't drop after 12 inches, it just didn't change at all.

Enough?
