Default Prime95 defaults to proof=8 for PRP-CF tests even though I have a very large disk space allocated

I have my Prime95 in a dumb directory that I don't use much and so gave it 100GB for proofs. Wavefront PRP selects proof=10, as expected. But — I recently started running PRP-CF instead out of interest and every test selects proof=8.


I understand that this is almost completely inconsequential because even a power-7 proof on a cofactor-size number would take trivial time to certify. But — I have to say I'm still curious why the program does not select a higher proof power for this specific type of test, when the space for one is certainly available.


I searched for "PRP cofactor proof power" but could only find unrelated posts.
