Thanks for the encouragement, much appreciated! I have each of the 24 cores that run do batches of 1000, so actually i'm already busy testing into the 4M range a tad. Up to 4.22M now. Within a few weeks that'll be 4.5M.

Yet will take 6+ months for the batches there to finish. If i keep 24 cores running then by end summer 2015 majority of the cores should be far over 4.5M with up to 4.5M nearly covered entirely.

If there is a prime within a few weeks, it's 50% odds it's > 4M. After that just 1 core out of 24 still searches < 4M.
About 3 months from now the last core should have finished < 4M range.
