That seems to be typical. I get the same.

It seems the server likes to mix up your workload a bit based on the amount of RAM you have on your user preferences.

If you give it a lot less (maybe about 200 or 300M) you will get assignments more in the F12-F15 range but on the other hand this little RAM will slow down the processing.
