    Is it Windows 7 that freezes Premiere cs5?

    iou362 Level 1

      I'm pretty new here and I've looked at some of the topics regarding freeze ups but I don't see anything that is similiar to my problem. I'm hoping that someone has had the same issue and fixed the random freeze ups during editing on Premiere CS5. This is a recent build and I've tested it on Vista 64 and it runs like a champ! So my question is, Is Win 7 64bit more unstable? Does Win7 64bit need to be optimized like Vista?


      Here is the build:

      OS: Windows 7 professional 64bit with recent updates

      Editing Software: Premiere CS5 (with recent update 5.03)

      Motherboard: Asus Sabertooth x79 LGA2011 with recent chip driver

      CPU: Intel Core i-7 3960 3.3ghz (not overclocked)

      CPU Cooler : Corsair Hydro H70 CORE CPU Liquid Cooler

      RAM: Corsair Vengeance 16GB PC12800 DDR3 1600MHz 4x4

      Main Hard Drive: Seagate Momentus XT 750gb 2.5" SATA 6gb/7200/32MB

      Storage Drive: 2x Seagate 1TB Serial ATA HD 7200/64MB/SATA-6G in RAID 0

      Video Card :ASUS GeForce GTX 570 DirectCU II 1280MB GDDR5 PCIe (with recent driver update)

      DVD ROM: ASUS 12X Blu Ray Burner Retail

      Power supply: Corsair Enthusiast Series TX650 V2 650W 80+ Bronze


      Most of the stuff I edit is MTS.and MOV. from my Canon HFS200 and Canon 7d


      Any help would be appreciated.
