Corsair Force Series 3 Speed Issues


Recommended Posts

So, I recently purchased a Corsair Force Series 3 120GB SSD. It came with the updated firmware of 1.3.1 or whatever.


I ran the benchmark with CrystalDiskMark and the sequential read/write were 172/107MB/S. This is unacceptable considering the specs are supposed to be 550/510.


I am an avid Corsair fan. I have ram, cpu cooling and PSU all Corsair and I truly trust the brand. Which is why I decided to go with the SSD besides the horror stories I heard about speed issues. I really would just like to get to the bottom of this. I also ran my old Corsair F60 and even those reads were lower than advertised.


Before you ask; yes, I did update my motherboard BIOS and damn near everything on my PC.


I look forward to your anticipated assistance.

Your motherboard only has SATA II. You'll never hit the rated speed without a SATA III motherboard.


The F60 is Sata II first of all. With speeds in the low 100s when they are advertised 285/275. And SATA III doesn't justify the Force Series 3 performing at 24% its advertised speeds.
