I run RIMP2 calculation of cubane molecule (C8H8) in a different bases.
ccpCVTZ, ccpCVQZ looks good, but with ccpCV5Z basis I have got unrelailable MP2 energy.
my input file is (molecular geometry is almost equilibrium):
title "cubane ccpV5Z MP2RI energy"
geometry
symmetry Oh
H 1.41063149 1.41063149 1.41063149
C 0.78371973 0.78371973 0.78371973
end
basis
H library ccpV5Z
C library ccpCV5Z
end
basis "rimp2 basis"
H library ccpV5Zri
C library ccpV5Zri
end
task rimp2
output energy is:

SCF energy 307.507255162945
Correlation energy 4369.270156917300
Total MP2 energy 4676.777412080244

Use of spherical functions can do the trick!

Dunning basis sets are designed to be used with spherical functions so the cartesian functions cause very bad linear dependency problems in some cases. Spherical functions aren't a trick; they are the right way to run this calculation.
