Default Force GT - ALSO on version 5.24? Or just GS?

Hi All

I've just bought a GT and decided to check the SSD toolbox for an update.

Sure enough it suggests I can update to version 5.24. (But the "latest firmware for every SSD" post suggests 5.05a is the latest..)

Scouring the forum and web I can't see anyone else running 5.24 so am hesitant incase it's a mistake.

So I guess the question is, is there anyone here with a GT running 5.24? All ok with no issues?

Cheers Guys, Bub

If you are not experiencing any issues with the SSD, there really isn't a need to update the firmware.

Hi Toasted, appreciate that logic, but would like to hear off people if possible!

Maybe Corsair forgot to update the latest firmware post??

The last update to the latest fw thread was on the 24/12/13, so it tells us that its dated.

Here's an example of another Force GT on FW 5.24 while another is on 5.05. (Note the drive signatures)

I'm guessing it has to do with the materials used which have changed throughout time, e.g. different NAND. But don't quote me on that as i don't know if that is the case with the Force GT.
