Here we take our first look at the actual Force Series SSD. All of the information you are going to find on the drive is shown here in the top label.

The back of the drive is standard all the way around. Here we see the mounting holes for quick installation in some notebooks and drive carriers.

The Force Series is a standard 9mm height and has the standard mounting locations on the side as well. The 9mm drive height has long been the choice for notebook manufacturers, so nearly all notebooks will be able to use the Force without issue.

On the rear we see that the power and data connections are located where they should be. We can call it standard all the way around just as it should be and move on.

The SandForce SF-1200 controller is located in the middle of eight Micron flash chips on this side. Current SandForce controllers do not use DRAM memory for cache and this allows manufacturers to produce drives at a lower cost.

The underside of the PCB also has eight Micron MLC flash modules. It would appear that Corsair has used the standard SandForce PCB layout. This early on I don't suspect anyone will have a custom PCB and as long as everything works well there is not really a need for anyone to spend R&D time to develop a new board.
