I have replied properly in the other thread. I ran some p-1s with different amounts of RAM allocated and each time the test took the same amount of time, however the chance of finding a factor went up.

The only way a p-1 test would take longer with more RAM allocated is if you allocate more memory to prime95 than what you currenly have free. Then prime95 starts to use "virtual memory" and then that REALLY slows down the p-1 test.
