Default Corsair One i160 - Whats the factory M2 SSD?

For all the owners of the Corsair One i160. What is the factory M2 SSD that ships with this unit? I assume it would be the Corsair Force Series MP510 480GB M.2 SSD correct? Just wanted to confirm before order because if its an x2 SSD I'll just purchase a couple of x4's and upgrade it right off the bat plus add a secondary M2 SSD for games only. This motherboard does support a second M2 SSD on the back correct? Thanks in advance guys!

Thanks! I find it extremely odd that they're using a Samsung SSD instead of their own brand. Makes me wonder if Samsung makes the chipsets for Corsair and they just rebrand their products. Are you able to confirm the motherboard supports a second a M2 slot on the back?

According to a newegg listing the factory drive is a Samsung 960 Evo sold to OEM manufactures.

Can one of the Corsair forum moderators/admins post an official response. My Corsair i160 arrives on Monday along with 3 different 140mm fans and a new mouse! I'd like to have all my parts here so I can start playing and tweaking the system.

The M.2 is indeed a samsung OEM M.2 drive. I'm not sure what kind of modification you are attempting to make but bear in mind, your warranty will be voided should any damage incur. There is an M.2 on the back of the motherboard and it is the only m.2 slot on the motherboard.

Thanks for the response! That's disappointing that there is only one M2 slot on the motherboard. For the price of the unit there should be a M2 slot on the front of the motherboard like normal and a secondary slot on the back. Either way I may clone the factory M2 drive onto a new Samsung 970 1TB and create partition for games. Then upgrade the factory 2.5" HDD to a 2.5" Seagate SSHD 2TB for additional storage such as movies, music and pictures.

If I do end up upgrading the factory M2 SSD I can download all the necessary software from your support website correct? As far as a MS OS image goes I have my own MSDN Enterprise account so I don't need it a cd key for Windows 10 Pro (or any other Windows 10 OS variant I'd install). Would there be anything I'm missing software wise?

On a separate note I have to give you guys props on shipping. I ordered my unit Tuesday evening right before midnight, Wednesday at noon my order had been confirmed, Thursday at 1am my order had shipped (from Taiwan), Friday my order was delivered at 4pm CST in the afternoon.
