    Choppy playback after upgrading hardware


      I've recently upgraded from a phenom 965 and 7gb 1333 gb ram, to an i5-2500k with 16gb 1600mhz. Otherwise everything is the same, i just reinstalled windows and premiere pro after the upgrade. After the upgrade this error, or annoyance, occured. Here's all the specifics:


      -Premiere pro CS5.5.2 v/latest updates

      -Windows 7 pro (fresh install v/important updates)

      -h.264 in mp4-container

      -no error messages

      -very choppy playback after "jogging". When theres a lot of movement, the picture becomes very "stuttery" and "pixelated" in that area.

      -no extra codecs or similar is installed.

      - hardware:

         -nvidia gtx 560 v/latest drivers

        -i5 2500k @ 4,6Ghz

        -16Gb 1600mhz xmp ram

        -7200rpm 500gb source hdd

        -5200rpm 120gb scratch disk

        -Agility 120gb ssd OS and programs


      I have tried using 1/4 playback, using ssd as scratch disk, installing and uninstalling extra codecs but none of it made any difference. The cpu or ram never exceeds 50% capacity when the problems occur.
