What size power supply, and what is your CPU cooler and temps?
Have you checked your BIOS settings to verify that everything is "stock" with no overclocking?
I think you set "turbo boost" in your BIOS
i have a corsair HX1050 psu. cooler master cooler (can't remember the model name but just a basic cooler. haven't seen any crazy temps though so it seems fine)
everything in bios is stock, although in the overclock section there is a setting that's automatic, and I can't figure out how to change to none. I'm assuming automatic means default/standard.
Sorry you reponded as I put this in
I doubt turbo boost would cause that problem. Answer John's questions get a free temperature monitor like RealTemp which I really like.
What Version of Premiere are you using? If it is Premiere 6 or 7 (CC) and you want to test your system we have a benchmark that might give us some clues on the tuning of your system it is PPBM6 or 7-DE. You will have to register on the site to see the posted results. We require you to download Speccy which is a fantastic hardware/software information tool which can be very beneficial in telling us many more details of your system.
Did you install the CPU and do a good job with the thermal paste or is it a film paste-on?

Yeah I don't think there's anything wrong with the thermal paste or overheating because my temps are in the 40's (deg C). I haven't monitored CPU specs before until I upgraded to windows 8, so is this normal for the CPU to fluctuate speeds so much?
I'll download the ppbm and see if I can find anything from that. There's gotta be something weird going in though because I can 't get h264 mp4 to play in QuickTime.
>intel 4930k... speed fluctuate like crazy and correct me if I'm wrong but it seems like the speed should be pretty steady?
I don't have that CPU, but I was not aware that a CPU could vary in speed
Have you updated all the drivers for your motherboard, gpu, etc.? And yes, I mean all the drivers even for things like USB 3.0 even if you are not currently using it.
