Default Edius pauses during editing I7-2600k Win7 64 16gb SSD

I want to know if anyone can give me some direction. I have a new I7-2600k Win7 64 computer with SSD main drive, Raid 1 video drive, 16gb ram.
When I am editing I constantly get tiny pauses during edits, usually 2-4 seconds in between. The cursor moves but I cant do anything on the timeline until it catches up. Its almost like Edius is thinking. I am editing AVCHD files from a GH2 and 60d but my other Windows 7 64 computer, doesnt do this and its a little slower, no SSD and only 8 gigs ram.

Do you think I have a setting wrong with the SSD or something? Everything else works like a charm. Its been running problem free 3 months, just the Edius issue is getting to me. Ive tried all the different settings under edius to no avail.

Thanks!

I just checked and both computers have "Use Accel. Seek boxes checked along with the 2 boxes under it, Create Seek and Save Seek"

I am a bit concerned about Raid1 video drive (Raid0 would be much faster)

can you do a speedtest on it with diskspeed from http://www.roadkil.net/program.php/P13/Disk%20Speed (free)

then report back the max read speed

Im sorry Anton, it is a Raid 0.

I did run the test you gave me on both C drive and the Raid Drive and here is what it gave me.

C: Access Time 0.19ms Max Read 321mb/sec Cached speed 481mb/sec

D: Raid Access Time 12.77ms Max Read 201mb/sec Cached speed 6.35GB/sec Overall Score 7020.7

Is it normal for the Random Seek times to be in the KB's up to the 8kb blocks?

your disk speeds are fine, so that is not the problem

does the PC have an antivirus program, if so, have you excluded the EDIUS software folder and the Video drive from being scanned

also, check my win7 performance options

Thanks for the link Anton. I did all of the things you had, but it didn't seem to help.

I did find out something though. After you said something about the Accel Seek option. I noticed that on my files in the bin, some of them have the blue lower left file icon for waiting to Create seek index. I have 2 folders with 6 files that are stuck with the blue system event / job:Create seek index. it has been like this for 2 days now and the blue icons do not go away.

On another project which has no blue system event icons in the bin seems to work just fine with no noticeable sluggishness. This has happend to me on several projects and I believe this might be the problem.

that will be your problem, incomplete seek file = sluggish editing

1. close EDIUS
2. use windows explorer and go to the folder that holds the troublesome clips
3. sort folder by type and then select all search files and delete them
4. start EDIUS and all clips in bin should show the search file generation icon
5. do not play the timeline until generation is complete

playing the timeline pauses generation

Thanks Anton!

I also have an update. I believe the problem was 2 fold. I discovered that one of my drives in the Raid was going bad. I did a RMA with WD and they will be advance shipping one to me today.

For the time being I am using only the 1 good SATA drive instead of the Raid 0. Do you know if there is there a huge performance difference for SATAIII drives as single vs Raid0? Its a WD Black 1gb SATAIII.

Thanks for your help!
