Can only Box 4 Instances of WoW

Hey Crew,

New boxer here. I was running 4 characters on WoW Classic at default setting 60/30 flawlessly. Graphics were max on all instances and when I switched from window to window it was seamless, almost like the switch never happened. I decided to add one more to my team so I was boxing 5. All of the sudden, my game was run at 5-10 fps, could barely manage to switch from window to window, and is basically unusable. I have played with the CPU wizard and made some tweaks there, but it doesn't seem to make a difference. Tried dropping graphics to lowest settings and still changes nothing for FPS. Below is my current hardware. Am I missing something?

Intel i7-9700k 8-Core 3.6 GHz, Geforce RTX 2070 8GB, 16GB DDR4, 1TB HDD, 240GB SSD

Although Classic doesn't use as much memory as retail, 16GB could be too little, forcing Windows to swap to disk and causing slow-downs.

Have a look at Task Manager: how much memory is each Wow.exe using?
