Unfortunately, I think the paging will cause everything to become unbearably slow, not just prime95.

The easiest answer is to run a Torture Test using lots of memory when you go to bed / leave the office. When you want to use the computer during the day stop the Torture Test and resume it with the in-place large-FFT option.
