On 25 April 2014, 21:06:16 UTC, PrimeGrid’s Sierpinski/Riesel Base 5 Problem project eliminated k=326834 by finding the mega prime:

326834*5^1634978-1

The prime is 1,142,807 digits long and enters Chris Caldwell's The Largest Known Primes Database ranked 56th overall. This is the largest known base 5 mega prime. 82 k's now remain in the Riesel Base 5 Problem.

The discovery was made by Scott Brown (Scott Brown) of the United States using an Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-2410M CPU @ 2.30GHz with 6GB RAM running Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium. This computer took about 44 hours and 32 minutes to complete the primality test using LLR. Scott is a member of the Duke University team.

The prime was verified on 26 April 2014 15:50:21 UTC, by Alejandro Kurtz (Alejandro) of Spain using an Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-2500 CPU @ 3.30GHz with 5.5 GB RAM running Microsoft Windows 7 Professional. This computer took about 13 hours and 28 minutes to complete the primality test using LLR. Alejandro is a member of the CANAL@Boinc team.
