It's entirely decided by string type and guages, and age of the springs, and many other factors. You just gotta do it until it's right. I usually waste a set or two of strings getting it set with new guages, then do all the final intonation with a fresh set again. Not every time, just when I change string guage or tunings...

This is part of the "joy" of floating systems, and it's a good learning experience to do it, because it sure isn't gonna be the least time. Unless of course you get pissed and just switch to hardtails...
