Peter Strasser searched really hard with software shown here and found this factor of F118, and that's the end of this story.

It says it right there - he found it with mmff. That means - using a GPU.

Now, how did I find this one?

...not just by running mmff. First, I was studying mmff's source for a week and then modified and experimented with it for a few weeks and when I was content with the new extended range (n in range high hundred-ish to low-200-ish) passing all tests, I ran it for several more months (and I paid a bunch for ~20 GPUs on AWS for several months) -- but I did get it. It was not easy, I will tell you that.
so it is impossible for me to get f118 factor without GPU at present ?
I have no GPU ,I only have CPU
