I followed some online build guides with the intent of editing 4K videos. Earlier this week I just bought two new SSDs and put them into my system thinking this would solve the problem. I've got my OS and software coming off one SSD and I've got my footage coming off another. Then I've got my scratch disks and cache coming off a non SSD drive. And I still have lag, makes me want to pull my hair out.
Here is my build.
Processor: Intel i7-6700k CPU 4.00 GHz 4001 Mhz 4 Cores
32 GB RAM
GeForce GTX 1070
SSDs: Samsung 850 EVO 250 GB (OS and Software)
Samsung SSD 850 PRO (Footage)
And then Ive got two non SSD drives
Im running Windows 10 and the newest version of Premiere Pro
Does anyone have any thoughts?

If you're editing DSLR or drone media, it ain't the computer ... it's the codec. Those use long-GOP formats & such ... which are incredibly core/thread intensive. Frequently 6k ProRes or DNxHDR plays back & edits smoother than 4k long-GOP.
So ... what's your media that you're working with, and what effects are you dropping on it?
