FL Studio core utilization? Answered

My brother uses Fl Studio (Producer Edition) with too many plug-ins to count.  I don't know the the number,  just that it's many.
He uses it on a 2012 Dell Desktop; Intel core i3 (3.3GHz dual core with hyper-threading) , 6GB of RAM, very basic. 

My question is, how many cores can Fl Studio use with so many plug-ins? Up to Six? Eight maybe? I know it should be able to use a quad up.

...And just for the hell of it, his artist Youtube and Facebook pages:

It will use as many cores as you have and allow it to use. The more power you give it the faster is can do the work.

Thanks, I was wondering because his songs are starting to glich out. He wants to make a custom pc, so I was going to help him with the build.
I could not find anything online about the subject either.
So if we got this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819113284
It could, hypothetically, use the whole thing up?

Yes the application is one that can utilize multiple cores. Even if it wasn't Windows is able to spread the load across all the cores.
