But I don't recommend following my example!

The problem here is that, even using MORE_CLASSES, each class from 86 to 87 bits would last more than 3,5 hours, and interrupting the search to use the (otherwise unusable) computer would waste approximately 2 hours of calculations.
If the computer has integrated graphics available, you could always try running the monitor off that instead of the GPU. AFAIK, that will still leave the computer usable while the GPU is crunching.
