Hi guys... I just built an awesome system with the help of this forum.

Everything works fine except that in Premiere Pro v 14 while i try to do a simple render (using 5 multi cam 4k 30 fps files), I see that the system slows down miserably... when i check activity monitor CPU loads is only around 20-30%. Since there was no color correction, iGPU was not used (which i know is working otherwise as checked on Geekbench).

The render, tho is fast, and uses my RX 590 to 100%, its weird that i cant perform any other simple task like browsing the net or even opening another folder... it slows down like an old computer - IM SURE a render task should not put the computer into such a bottleneck esp when CPU loads is sooooo low!

Im running premiere pro on METAL and all the files including main installation is on the 1 TB SSD.

PLS HELP!!

MY SPEC (running Mojave 10.14.6 latest with security update):

Gigabyte Z390 Designare
Intel i7 3.7Ghz 8700k with NOCTUA NH-U12A air cooler

1TB Crucial SSD (No TRIM)
