Answered with a tutorial:

I don't know what you are working on... but if you have a lot of bolts and nuts, make sure there is not a lot of cosmetics and details on them this can sometime give you quite an hard time !

Only 100 parts? Must be complex parts! Try changing large assembly mode to 80 parts - default is 500 (auto switch) or use large assembly mode manually. Load components as light weight. Could even try reducing image quality in settings.
