    System hiccups


      Greetings everyone, and my most sincere apologies should this topic exist somewhere else.


      I own a workstation-class computer, specifications are as follows:


      Asus P9X79 (Not PRO)

      Intel Core i7 3930-K (standard clock)

      SSD Corsair ForceGT 120GB SATA3 for Operating System

      2x Dual Channel 4x Corsair Vengeance LP DDR3 16GB 1600 CL9 kits (32GB in total)

      2x HDD Hitachi 1TB 7200RPM 32MB SATA3 (linked through RAID 0)

      Noctua NH-D14

      Asus GTX570 DirectCUII 1.28GB (standard clock)

      OCZ 750w Power Supply (bronze certificate)

      Zalman Z9 case


      The problem lies in the fact that, every time I am working on Premiere Pro CS5 (1920x1080i AVCHD from my AG-AC160, as well as DV 720x576) the computer simply freezes randomly when working on the projects. In addition, the HDD activity LED lights up until the system is manually restarted. It is severely frustrating, but I have high hopes that the topic will provide answers to this mystery.


      In case you were wondering, encoding times when making the DVD using Encore are 75% of the DVD's time, and for BluRay it is 100+, that is, if I am not using visual plugins for color grading, which would increase export times tenfold.


      Looking forward to answers soon!
