If the difference between farming MP0 and MP3 is that MP3 actualy challenges you and you have to spend any amount of time killing things beyond just walking through them, you should just be farming MP0, the bonuses of MP3 are EXTREMELY outweighed by the fact you are not moving nonstop.
For those of us with gear, it is best to find the monster power where you begin to stop while killing, then use 1 less. This will maximize your farm.
Ill repeat in all caps, USING MOSTER POWER IS ACTUALY NETTING YOU LESS FARM OVER ALL IF WHILE USING IT YOU HAVE TO STOP AT ---A N Y--- POINT IN TIME! (other than to look at items)
Edit for clarification:
Wizards: this means anything beyond stutterstepping, and NEVER backtracking other than to pick up items
Monks: this means anything other than tempest rushing through everything and 1 shotting it
Barbs: this menas anything other than WWing ONCE through trash and it dying (this menas never having to WW back through)
Demonhunters: this means that the only time syou shouldnt be vaulting is when your 1 shotting things.
Wichdoctors: I have no idea how you play, but you should also never stop
