Green is the color of the day, at least for the Force LX.

Corsair used the same inner package as the company uses on all SSD models. The Force Series LX doesn't ship with an accessory package like the Neutron, Force GS, or Force GT.

Here we get our first look at the drive. The LX uses an aluminum body with a 7mm z-height.

The case is all-metal, so it also acts as a heat sink for the controller, DRAM, and flash.

Inside, we found a half-length PCB.

The SMI SM2246EN is a 4-channel, low power controller that is capable of very high sequential read speeds. Buffering the page table data is a 128MB Nanya DDR3-1600 DRAM chip.

The flash is self-packaged Micron L85 20nm die. There are eight total 32GB packages, four on each side of the PCB.
