Hi everyone. I have Corsair MP500 120 Gb installed on my ASUS Z97I-Plus. Everything works fine. But I have noticed that parameter "Number of Error Information Log Entries" increments each time before OS starts to load on every turn on or reboot. Current value of this parameter is 5042 (from Corsair SSD Toolbox). All other SMART attributes are OK. Example of error log from Ubuntu nvme (all errors are similar): ................. Entry[ 0] ................. error_count : 4823 sqid : 0 cmdid : 0xe status_field : 0x4004 parm_err_loc : 0xffff lba : 0x80001000100 nsid : 1 vs : 0 So... is this normal for this SSD, or it's a defect or I should change some UEFI settings? I am In confusion, because I have another system with ASUS H97I-Plus + Plextor M8Pe 256GB and no errors on its SMART.
Hi, I am living in Turkey and studying Computer Engineering at Çukurova University.I am codding some simple program and editing video&photograph with Adobe Premiere and Photoshop.I am also using 128 GB SSD but it is not enough for me.Also as a University student I am playing some computer games.I wrote an e-mail to Corsair Support and they led me here.I need a new SSD but I can not buy new one because in Turkey hardwares are very expensive because 1$ = 3.7 Turkish Liras.Turkey is do not have own hardware company like Corsair.Think that Corsair Force MP500 480 GB is 1300$.How can you buy it?I give a photo here about MP500 Price in Hepsiburada(Hepsiburada is a kind of online-shopping site like Amazon but it only sell in Turkey).As you see MP500 480 GB is 1300 Turkish Liras(TL).I see that Corsair support generally gamers but would you support one time computer engineers?Really I need it.
Does anyone know if a MP500 would work on an AM3+ motherboard? The motherboard that I have is Asus M5A99FX PRO R2.0. I'm thinking of mounting a MP500 on it with an Asus HYPER M.2 X4 Adapter. I hope someone might be able to help. Thank you very much in advance!!
The Force MP500 provides the breakneck speed of NVMe SSDs in an ultra-compact M.2 form-factor that allows it to be installed in any current PC platform. Here's a quick how-to so you can hit the ground running while making sure your MP500 is performing at its best. To install the Force MP500, you first need to have a motherboard that sports M.2 sockets. These will usually be between the PCIExpress slots on the motherboard (also double check your motherboard manual to ensure that the M.2 sockets support PCIe devices at 4x Gen 3.0, some older motherboards have M.2 sockets that only support SATA-based drives). Remove the Force MP500 from its packaging, you'll notice that it's safely stored in a plastic clamshell. Remove the screw from the M.2 standoff if pre-installed on your motherboard (some motherboards don't have the M.2 standoff and screw pre-installed, so check the contents of your motherboard's packaging in case they come packed-in, rather than pre-installed out of the box) Gently insert the MP500 into the M.2 slot. The M.2 slot is keyed in such a way that the MP500 will only insert one way (if it doesn't go in, don't force it in or else you'll risk damaging the MP500 and/or your motherboard). Press down on the MP500 so that the notch on the left of the drive lines up with the screw hole. Secure the MP500 by reinstalling the screw. And that's it! Now to make sure we've got it going on the OS side. Boot up your PC and go to disk management. You should get a notification that a new unformatted drive has been installed. Follow the prompts and you're good to go! Alternatively, you can use cloning software or do an OS reinstallation to migrate your OS to the Force MP500 if you'd rather have your main OS boot up from your new drive.
