8 connections is more than enough for your client to pull blocks from the bitcoin network. So adding more doesn’t help you, at least not directly. But it does help the bitcoin network if your node is accessible to others. Correction: it has 8 outbound connections. I tell Bitcoin-qt to use the forwarded port?
