I think you should try "your way" on a (well, many) small number that isn't a perfect number before you go extrapolating it to 100k-digit numbers.
Your way provides an answer. It's not the right...

You can solve a rather large NFS matrix with 64GB; a problem that doesn't fit would also need multiple months to solve on any sub-$5000 CPU setup.
