Lightroom sluggish to generate previews on a fast computer

Do you guys notice how sluggishly LR generates previews of newly imported files? I often have to click on an image and then wait for the three little dots go away and for the preview to get ready. And then repeat for many other images. They just will not get done on their own.

I use Canon 6D and 1Ds MkIII so the files are not that big. And the computer is fast:

INTEL CORE I7 4771 3.5GHZ
KINGSTON 32GB 1600MHZ KIT
SAMSUNG 840 PRO SERIES 256GB SSD SATA3
ASUS GTX650TI 2GB GDDR5 PCI-E
WIN 8.1 PRO SP1 64-BIT UK

Any advice is appreciated!
