Adobe Premiere Pro CC 2017 super laggy playback?

I don't know how can this be happening, I built a $1500 computer just to edit videos and apparently I can't even edit 1080p properly...Why is Premiere pro struggling with 60fps 1080p videos? Whenever I playback my video either with (full, 1/4 or 1/8) I get super choppy and laggy playback to the point where editing is unbearable (no effects applied).My specs shouldn't be a problem even for 4K video. Core i5 6600K (overclocked @4.4GHz) Cooler Master hyper 212x Kingston hyper fury X 2x4gb @2666MHz MSI GTX 1070 Gaming X (overclocked) WD blue 1TB Samsung 850 evo 256GbI have installed all of my adobe programs on ssd. Also when I start to playback the video in PPro the cpu usage goes to 100%P.S. Could it be because of the high video bitrate? (60-80mbs)?
