The purpose of option 2 is to virtually guarantee a twin, whereas with picking a single n this is not possible. I would be interested to see how many computer years such an exercise would take, because, testing the option 2 approach at n=71000 will take quite a bit of time so at n=500000 the time must be astronomical. The current record was achieved through good fortune if we look at the statistics.
