I have a Kingston SSD, a Raptor , a WD Black, and a Samsung hard drive in my pc and when I sometimes try to download something to one of them or access the hard drives the PC will freeze until the platters spin up. Is there a way to keep them spinning all the time so I can quickly access them?

Yes, Control Panel, Power Options, Change Plan Settings, Change Advanced Power settings, then where it says "Turn Hard Disks after" instead of selecting a number of minutes, set it to say "never"
