The Corsair Force 3 120GB

Here we get our first look at the Corsair Force 3. The drive has an aluminum case that fits in my Lenovo notebooks. This is Corsair's tried and true case that has been used on many of their SSD products.

With the serial number and drive capacity listed on the front label there isn't much to show on the back other than the four mounting points that are located where they should be.

On the side of the Force 3 we also found the standard mounting points.

The SATA power and data ports are where they should be and the desktop adapter bracket offsets the drive so they are in line with your other 3.5" drives.

On the inside we found a different PCB than what OCZ used on the Agility 3. The Corsair Force 3 uses a lot more surface mount components. On this side we found the SandForce SF-2281 controller and eight of the sixteen IMFT 25nm flash chips.

The other side also has several surface mount components and the eight flash chips.
