ive this disk since 2012 and its gr8! Both fast and stable
Wow I'm happy I got the 60gb for $43 on Newegg. Not happy with the storage capacity but I'm going to have a second 500gb hdd installed for games and documents and have the essentials installed on the ssd ie anti virus and browser.
I have a Gigabyte Z68X Motherboard , where in the bios can I shut C3/C6 Energy Saving features OFF ???
i have this ssd but - i have windows score only 7,6 and as ssd benchmark only 360 points and here is 400
got it fixed. had to disable c3/c6 AND cpu halt in bios, bottleneck is gone ! tyvm man !
thanks for the quick reply. I rremember i saw someone mention that a particular intel SATA driver could resolve the issue but i can'T find the daim article again. Have you done any testing in that regard ? So weird that my read speeds are maxed out, but only the write speed is almost half speed. i can'T be the cable then. Thanks again
Alright, I ran to this issue one time again too. Disabling the C3/C6 State and EIST helped. Every CPU Energy Saving Feature must be turned off. That pretty much is awful, hopefully Gigabyte will solve this issues someday with new BIOS updates.
hello there. i just installed my corsair s3 120g and found your video a nice reference for the speed i should be getting. so far, with atto, im getting up to 540mb/sec reads, but i never go above 270mb/sec write speed for some reasons. i tried c3/6 disabled no luck. also, with crystaldisk all i get is 200/150 for SEQ wich seems low. On a gigabyte z68x-ud3h-b3 f10 bios. if you have any tips let me know please !
I have one of these and i have a very stupid complaint. Not so much on the drive (Havent tried it yet, im installing as i type this) I own the corsair 600t chassi and it has harddrive bays, now it has holes in the bottom where you install the 2.5 driver. Lovely no need for an adapter? Well not even the ssd from corsair that came out right when the this chassi was released fit with the ssd. Thats amazing. So yeah not really a problem just dont get how this happened.
I was speaking of the C3/C6 Energy Saving features. But if you don't use a Gigabyte Z68 motherboard, there shouldn't be a problem anyways. :)
At 4:25 you say to disable something in bios to improve problems with SSD.
What do i need to disable? i couldn't quite hear what you are saying.. is it S3 power save mode?
kickass review!! planning to buy this!! :)
i just bought one !!! boots in under 10 seconds~!!!!
Well, thank you very much, but unfortunately I don't get paid at all. ;)
Corsair should pay you.... after all, the only reason I bought this SSD is because of this review!!
Thanks for all the information! :)
AS-SSD benchmark is for compressed and encrypted data.
This means movies, musics, pictures that cannot be compressed will not get advertised speeds for sandforce drives.
if i buy this ssd in how many seconds will my windows 10 gaming pc will boot?
I think its DEAD,omfg, I put too much work on this hd, but no video editing, mostly compiling C++, its not showing up in bios, not mounting to fast mount. now its time to find out how to do data recovery off SSD. most new reviews on newegg say 2 years died...
Hey guys im new to this and will be building my first pc. So i have a question. When he says you need "sata 3 revision". He means that your mobo needs to have sata 3 ports rights?
Is it a good idea to get this with a 750gb 7200rpm HDD as a back up?
I actually dont think it will 0.0
Where is my gun?
I hear OCZ lies about their speeds. Corsair is more reliable in every way I can think of.
what's the difference between this one and the GT one?
Corsair Force Series 3 240GB = $139 @ Gadgetar.com
For gaming force 3,for video editing force 3 gt.
Corsair Force Series GT 120GB has higher sequential read/write results in real world scenarios & is overall better than Corsair Force 3 SSDs due to the Synchronous NAND technology that the GT has.
Go for the Force GT 120GB
Who is the best Corsair Force Series 3 120GB or Corsair Force Series GT 120GB
So, i got this SSD, but my League of Legends loading times are pretty much the same..
(Yes, the game is installed on the SSD.)
Am I missing some tweak or something?
SATA 3 will perform about twice as fast as SATA 2.
I have a Corsair SSd with a modle number: CSSD-F120GB3A-BK does the BK change anything?
Very cool! Thanks, it help a lot!
i dont know why, but i just want to hit paul in the head.
@magzire you can always buy a sata 3 card to enable sata3 on your pc.
I have SATA 2 on my mobo. Still perform good?
Where can buy best Corsair SSD in UAE, Corsair Force Series SSD in UAE, MP510 4TB M.2 SSD in UAEhttps://gccgamers.com/computer-parts-components/ssd/corsair-force-series-mp510-4tb-m-2-ssd-cssd-f4000gbmp510.html
Corsair is the worst SSD every go to Corsair forum and see how many problems this device have. freeze problem, device not found and tons of Firmware updates problems, thanks god i have all the above. don't buy
There on ebay new cheap
this one or samsung evo/pro?
Crucial SSD's are thee best for continual high performance and don't tank after a certain amount of the capacity is used.
Great review but really not very 'costumer' friendly. Many people buy SSD's just because they're fast (really they don't wanna know more than that), yet in this review you directed the knowledge about the SSD's to those who know the details of it.
You could have made a little more simplistic to provide good answers for 'everyone'. Just a little tip - good work anyway!
minimum of about 21 mb/s actually, correction on lowest 4k read.
damn this ssd almost scores up to 40 mb/s for 4k read, now i dont really understand this whole compressible/incomresssible date thing but it still manages to score about 30 mb/s for the lowest which is pretty good, il either get this or the samsung 840 pro, whichever i can get for the best deal for the space provided. maybe perhaps a plextor m5 pro..
is it good ssd in market ?
gs series is good ?
Can you me pls tell what better is
2 Corsair Force Series GS 128gb or
2 Corsair Force Series3 F120 120gb
its 80€ different.
I know it's an overview, but does this benchmark mean it's a good drive?
224gb it said it in the video
they have 128gb gs ssds
Whats the formatted capacity of this SSD?
great vid! just bought this same drive from Newegg :)
What you want to actually worry about is how long it takes to degrade. SSDs downfall is the fact that there is a maximum number of writes you can do before it stops working properly (effectively the size of the device shrinks over time)..this is also true of regular hard drives but the physical degredation of the media takes a long time, and other parts of the drive often give out first.
Last I read there are ideas floating around about holographic memory storage which, if they get it working, would provide terabytes of storage with very fast access speeds. Last I was reading about it was 5-6 years ago as something on the horizon but it seems to have its own technical challenges and the economic collapse didn't help any of that.
check to see if it's a sata connection, it should be
I have a early 2011 MacBook Pro 13" that I have just installed the 360 GB version on and it works fine. I'm very pleased at the results. I was thinking about buying a new Mac but with this I saved money and the Results are outstanding. I recommend. I also installed 8GB of Ram.
Misleading title. Linux os work smooth on 128 gb even with updates
Oooo ji Beta.... SSD 120gb storage ke liye nai hota.... Wo only Apne OS ke liye hota he.... 😂😂😂😂 And ye external use nai hota...😂😂😂😂
Lamao sirf window karooo ok baki hdd lay loo

Bruhhh jo gamer hai unke liye 240 Gb ya usse jayada, Jo normal user hai like me chota mota video editor uske liye 120gb is enough mere pe abhi 70Gb empty hai.. I use it for OS only..
Bro i use pdf reading, surfing and video editing on my laptop. My budget is very tight. I am getting kingston 120gb for 1599,240gb for 2399. What should I do?
My hdd C drive has 88gb space used up.
240Gb bhi useless hai .. 500Gb is preferable and ADATA SSDs are not very pricey these days
600 extra nai h 240gb 2500 ka ata h sab afford nai karpate hain
