Is there some reason you can't just use one of the clients at http://www.mersenne.org/freesoft.htm? They're available for many OSes and some can run multiple threads to use multiple CPUs or cores of the powerful computer on one number, although it reduces efficiency by some degree. Also, they probably use a very efficient way of testing primality of Mersenne numbers.
