No matter what, because of some bugs, at times FCPX will just be unresponsive for a bit. So factor that in.

Here are some things you can try:

The first thing I would do is close FCPX and repair disk permissions on your system drive and repair the firewire drive.

Then I would use digital rebellion's preference manager to delete the preferences.

Those 2 steps eliminate a lot of problems.

Next I would set the background render to 45 seconds or more.

Check your energy preferences and make sure your hard drive and computer aren't going to sleep too soon.

Check the info of the FCPX app in finder and make sure app nap is off.

If none of that speeds it up, and you're sure it's worse for you than other people, you might have some corruption in your library or media.

To check for that, delete all of your render files and transcoded media. Move your original media somewhere safe.

Reimport, retranscode, and see if that helps.
