Hardware Heaven, Force Series™ GT SSD Review — Overall 10 out of 10 score — "Speaking of speed, the Force GT continues to score well in that regard. Throughout the review it was able to outperform a higher capacity Intel model based on the latest Marvell controller."

 

LanOC, Gaming Audio Series™ SP2500 Speakers Review — 10 out of 10, and an "Editor's Choice" award — "My experience with the SP2500 was amazing. High’s, mid's and low's were all equally impressive. My only complaint from a gamers perspective was the lack of a 5.1 option for better directionality, but even for a 2.1 system in-game performance was wonderful."

 

TweakTown, Builder Series™ CX430 V2 PSU Review "Sometimes it is refreshing to sit back and take a look at non-enthusiast grade hardware. It is simplistic, does exactly what it is meant to do, and is cheap. The CX430V2 is does just that and nothing more. It provides plenty of power, within specifications, for low end systems. It does it without a ton of cables getting in the way or extra connectors that you'll never use. Best of all, it does it at a great price."

So you just built yourself a new Intel® X79 based system using 32GB of Vengeance® memory and a Force Series™ GT SSD. It's already pretty fast, but you can make it faster by caching with memory! Similar in concept to our Accelerator Series™ SSD cache drives, you can use a DRAM memory to cache your SSD or HDD and get absolutely amazing read performance. A RAM cache allocates a chunk of your memory to store the most commonly used data from your main disk, making this data available to the CPU with rocket-fast access time. A RAM disk is very similar — however, it shows up as a different drive letter and files must be manually copied to it. In addition, if you lose power, everything on the RAM disk is lost forever, while the data in the RAM cache is mirrored in the hard drive or SSD.

Hot Heaven, Force Series™ GT SSD Review in a SSD Round-Up— "For all out performance, the Corsair Force GT offers a good balance; its cost per GB is lower than the OCZ Vertex 3 Max IOPS drive despite offering similar performance."

 

The SSD Review, Force Series™ 3 SSD Review — "Considering that the Corsair Force Series 3 120GB SSD is a top performer, we did a bit of background on the value and found it to be the lowest price new generation ‘SandForce Driven SATA 3 SSD available at the time of print for $194.99.  Given the performance and price of the Force 3, it is certainly deserving of our Editors Choice Award!"

 

TweakTown, Force Series™ 3 SSD Review "So much emphasis is placed on big numbers that look good on spread sheets and specification charts while so little placed on what really counts. The Corsair Force 3 is all about giving you the feel of instant action when double clicking and giving it at a price point that's affordable."

 

Hardware Heaven, Hydro Series™ H80 CPU Cooler Review — "In terms of current performance the H80 scores well, outperforming a high quality air cooler in every test and also beating the Antec 920 by a degree or two throughout. On the whole it also tends to run a touch quieter at idle and full load."

 

Kit Guru, Obsidian Series® Mid-Tower Case Review in a SSD Round-Up — "Even though the Obsidian 650D is essentially a smaller version of the top-end 800D case, we think it is a very impressive case in its own right. It offers everything we look for in a case at this price point.

We can't think of a case that we've reviewed that has a better internal design than the Obsidian 650D, except perhaps the Graphite 600T which is virtually identical inside. All of the cable routing holes are exactly where they need to be and are filled with high quality rubber grommets that aren't going to fall out after poking a cable through."

Overclockers Club, Force Series™ 3 SSD Review "Having tested this drive, it is without doubt that an SSD can potentially give your computer a viable performance boost. In case you are still skeptical, let me put it this way – the upgrade in speed that you get from installing an SSD, like the Corsair Force GT, is like the 100 horsepower boost you'd get from adding a 100 shot nitrous system into your car!"

 

TweakTown, Force Series™ GT 3 SSD Review — "In this review we saw the latest firmware revision from SandForce and it allowed the Corsair Force GT to outperform every other drive in our charts. The Force GT is wicked fast and comes very close to reaching the performance limitations of SATA III (585MB/s) today. In ATTO we hit 560MB/s which is significant since that means this drive will still look good when next year's SSDs ship. There isn't really a lot of room to grow until SATA IV which hasn't even been announced, or for that matter publicly talked about."

 

Hexus, Force Series™ GT SSD Review in a SSD Round-Up — "Outfitted with 25nm synchronous NAND, the Force GT can struggle to keep up with rival solutions armed with Toshiba's premium Toggle Mode NAND, but the drive's ability is nonetheless impressive and it's comfortably quicker than the Force Series 3 in almost all of our benchmarks. Put two together in RAID and the results can be staggering."

 

NeoSeeker, Hydro Series™ H80 CPU Cooler Review — "Overall, the Corsair H80 is a hassle free, all-in-one solution that offers performance superior to virtually all other cooler on the market. So, if you are looking for the best and don't mind paying a premium, then the H80 is the perfect choice."

 

TweakTown, Professional Series™ HX1050 PSU Review in a SSD Round-Up — "Corsair also took a huge leap forward with the increased efficiency seen in the HX1050 and the extra two years of warranty. Corsair adds a bit more to sweeten the deal by offering the HX1050 for $219 which is the same price as the older and much less efficient HX1000."
