Corsair Force 3 240GB Firmware Update

Recommended Posts

What will be my benefits of a Firmware Update?

I'm pretty far behind. I'm still using Firmware Version: 1.3.3

But I just noticed there already is Firmware Version: 5.2


Would it be worth it to update firmware. And what could go wrong?

Can I ruin it, and what will happen?

FW 5.03 is the latest.


If your not experiencing any issues with the drive, You don't need to update the FW.


Changelog for 5.03



1. Restored a minor TRIM performance variation from a previous release

2. Fixed a power management condition where the device failed to respond to COMWAKE, which might have resulted in the SSD not responding without being reset by the host

Sandforce 2 controller based drives have 2 firmware series, series 3 and series 5.


Corsair was using their own firmware update numbering for the 3 series firmware (1.0.0 to 1.3.3)


For the 5 series firmware, corsair, and most other sandforce customers, choose to stick with the sandforce firmware numbering. (5.0.1 to 5.0.3 and further with new drives).


From what I recall 5.02 was released, but recalled as it had a minor performance fault with TRIM. Or at least it was shipped on some of corsairs drives.
