minimum energy of a single DPPC molecule

I got the next fact,I hope you can help me.
I would like to get the minimum of energy of a single molecule of DPPC.Therefore by adding it in gromacs at very low temperatures what I find is that at very low temperature (20 K ) the molecule is shrunken and at high temperatures(400 K) the molecule is totally frozen, flat and rigid.This is totally the opposite to what I expected.Does anybody know what is going on?
I also attach the parameters.
