Hopefully by separating the drives that way, any one won't be used too much, and if it is it won't affect the whole system.

I also learned that separating them this way helps in capturing game footage since you aren't running the OD, playing the game, streaming AND capturing footage all on the same disc and vying for resources.

Seems to be working well so far.
Glad to hear it!

That's just a bit excessive. One big one for games ect would have been better. I have an older Crucial M4 for games and recording and it does just fine.
