Lightroom is fast until computer has been up for a day

I have a AMD Ryzen 9 3900x with 32GB RAM with a 1TB M2 drive. I upgraded from an Intel 3930x with 32GB memory and a SDD drive hoping that my problem would be solved. Anyway, it is not. I am currently running with Windows Defender anti-virus.

 

All the Lightroom navigation works great when the computer is first booted. But after a day or so, everything gets very slow/sluggish. This would include just viewing a photo and moving to the next one. The photos are mostly 30-50MB CR2 files with standard previews. I have set the Camera Raw Cache and video cache to 60 GB.

Doesn't seem to make much difference how long I spend in Lightroom.

But after a day or so, everything gets very slow/sluggish.

 

Is this "after the computer has been running for 1-2 days" or "after Lightroom has been running 1-2 days"?

Which version of Windows?

Which number version of Lightroom?

As an idea of the change in performance, these are results of going from one photo to the next one for 10 photos in the library.

After reboot: 8.5 secs

1 day: 12.9

2 1/2 days: 17

OVERHEATING?

 

I assume this is a desktop computer, not a Laptop/Notebook

 

Turn it off, Open it up. Inspect for dust bunny's around CPU, RAM, GPU, and dust in general.Check for clogged air inlets/outlets, including PSU (that one may be on bottom). Make sure any CPU cooling is still getting electricity (loose wire)

Is your PSU adequate?

 

Consider a calculator like: https://www.newegg.com/tools/power-supply-calculator/

to determine

But one question was not completely answered.

 

All that time from when you turned the computer on, till the end of day 2. Was Lightroom Classic running? Perhaps in background, but running. As in you did not close it?

This computer build is only 4 months old. I have a 650 Watt EVGA Gold PSU and a Radeon RX 570 GPU. The "normal" temperatures are about 64 to 74C. 

I typically use Lightroom for a hour or so, and then exit it. 

I don't see anything to indicate that Lightroom is running in the background.
