Default Memory Settings

My understand is that Prime95 doesn't require a lot of memory, but when setting up Prime95 you get a warning if you stick with the default 8mb Day / 8mb night. So, clearly a higher value is optimal, but how much is "ideal" and how much is just overkill (assuming LL tests)?

For example, I currently have the following:

Computer Memory 16334 MB configured usage 3500 MB day / 3500 MB night

As it's crunching away on a FT LL, it looks like it's actively using 75mb. However I believe I read somewhere it may use more toward the start or end of an LL test when it's doing some other work? So with my current settings it could use up to 3500mb as needed during those parts of the testing?
