Refurbished Corsair SSD


Recommended Posts

CSSD-F60GB3A/RF2, bought one week ago, it works good, ATTO transfer rate: Write 461 MB/S, Read 568 MB/S.

Yesterday, update this SSD Firmware from 5.02 to 5.03, the Update Tool detect: Corsair Force 3 SSD, S/N, FW Rev.5.02, Signature 142-142-22790,

I chose the file 22790_fw.vic, a warning said "Automatic restart may occur... save unsaved data... click Cancel, otherwise click Proceed", I clicked Proceed, it responded a red X instantly.


Does refurbished version not allow to FW update? or something I have mistake?

Toasted & Yellowbeard, Thanks!

Yes! I roll back AHCI Driver from AMD to MS, then run update firmware again, it is successful, a Green V display.


MS AHCI vs. AMD AHCI, seems AMD is better for my system, so now, I reinstall AHCI driver to AMD. The FW5.02 vs 5.03 is no big difference.


AHCIs & ATTO transfer rate:

MS AHCI 6.17601.17514 - W452 R546 (FW5.03)

AMD AHCI - W468 R567 (FW5.03)


Before FW update:

AMD AHCI - W461 R568 (FW5.02)
