How are you going to perform the calculations?

Prime95 has hand tweaked assembler with optimization branches for different processors and caches. Are you going to replace that with Java? Too slow.

How big is the residue you need to transfer each time? A bit bigger than the last prime we found. Too much bandwidth.

I don't think it's a promising approach.
