Abstract: We prove that, for any $ \lambda\in\mathbb{R}$, the system $ -\Delta u +\lambda u = u^3-\beta uv^2$, $ -\Delta v+\lambda v =v^3-\beta vu^2$, $ u,v\in H^1_0(\Omega),$ where $ \Omega$ is a bounded smooth domain of $ \mathbb{R}^3$, admits a bounded family of positive solutions $ (u_{\beta}, v_{\beta})$ as $ \beta \to +\infty$. An upper bound on the number of nodal sets of the weak limits of $ u_{\beta}-v_{\beta}$ is also provided. Moreover, for any sufficiently large fixed value of $ \beta >0$ the system admits infinitely many positive solutions.
