Scenario:
So i am about to encrypt my "hard drive", my system drive "C". Now i am going to use Veracrypt with these parameters:

Encryption Algorithm(s): AES(TwoFish(Serpent))
Hash: SHA-512
Wipe Mode: 1-Pass (Random Data)

Question:
Will the cascaded encryption slow my rig down significantly, as in 4k gaming / Internet with these specs:

Specs:
Asus Rampage IV Extreme
Intel i7 4960X Extreme (OC to 4.4GHz)
64GB Corsair Vengeance RAM (8x8GB)
(2) MSI GTX 980 Graphics Cards (SLI Plus Over Clocked)
(2) Samsung 840 Pro 512GB SSD's (Raid 0)
Coorsair AX1200i PSU

1. Why are you wanting to encrypt the entire C drive?

2. Yes, FDE will slow things down. Maybe a little, maybe enough to screw up your gaming.

3. The combination of SSD + RAID 0 + FDE is a disaster waiting to happen.
