Yes. No.

Unless you are doing P-1 work, Prime95/mprime only uses about 50 MB of RAM per LL/DC test.

Years ago candidates would often be handed out for a LL test without the P-1 test already done. Nowadays there are a group of people who focus on Trial Factoring (TF'ing) and/or P-1'ing before such assignments are given, and so such workers can immediately start the LL test.

So, unless you ask for an assignment outside of the normal ranges (332M, for example) the RAM settings make no difference, and will not speed up the test.
