Check how much memory you can reserve for prime95 before thrashing occurs.

This will be hard. It all depends on on other applications that are loaded and how you are using them.

If you give Prime95 the maximum available memory starting another application, or even doing something in an active application might cause trashing

Some people do stage 2 with the OnlyRunStage2WithMaxMemory setting. Also, some people don't run much else on their computers. Also, it shouldn't be too hard to detect thrashing and correct the problem by reducing memory usage or alerting the user to reduce memory usage.
