I have 4 x Logitech C920 Webcams that are each connected to a usb extender cable with built in repeaters. 
Two of these plug into 2 x USB 3.0 ports that are built in to the mother board. The other two plug in 2 x USB 3.0 ports on a USB 3.0 PCI express card. 
When recording in Wirecast i find that the cameras are not great quality and have lag. They work fine individually. 
I have tried various software to see if it gets any better. The lag is reduced in other software but there is still the problem of quality. 
I have been recommended to possibly get a SATA to USB 3.0 to spreadout the bandwidth. 
I would be very grateful if anyone would be able to help me with this issue as i really would like to get the best out of the cameras. 

My setup
Processor Intel® Core™ i7 CPU 920 @ 2.67GHz, 2661 Mhz, 4 Core(s), 8 Logical 
System Manufacturer Gigabyte Technology Co., Ltd.
System Model X58-USB3
Installed Physical Memory (RAM) 12.0 GB
Name AMD Radeon R9 200 / HD 7900 Series
