A RKMAX (the RKM value in case.scf) of 2.05 is too small for a minimum RMT
of 1.2, the results of the calculation will be very poor. I estimate that
you need a value of at least 5, which will mean a much larger matrix size
and a longer calculation.

You need to use a more powerful computer or (better) a cluster. I will
estimate that something like 64 cores will give you a fairly fast result.
If all you have is a single core computer either give up on the calculation
or increase NATMAX & NUME and (if you have enough memory) wait.

N.B., depending upon your architecture the multithreaded mkl (which you
seem to be using) is faster or slower than mpi. On my systems mpi is faster
even for small system, on Peter Blaha's he says that the multithreading is
faster.
