See any system when solvated with a solvent, constitutes certain
number of molecules which needs to be considered for the simulation.
Obviously if that number is higher, it will demand more CPU hours to
leap through the energy surface to screen the energy minimum through
such a big confirmational space. CHCL3 thats why took less time, as it
is small, with less number of atoms. And i believe, the protein which
you are using is solvated with a pretty low number of CHCL3 as
compared to others.
