7900 candidates per 50k range of n is not a lot! That's usual for this kind of numbers. Have a look at the thread for k=2995125705, the average is about 150 per a 1000 range of k, which means 7500 per 50k, that's only 400 less than your case (because it is sieved to 18T). So just keep on going.

OTOH, some k's have large gaps (in terms on n) between primes. If you want you can stop this one and select another k.
