Corsair uses a metal casing for their Force GT range, one which is identical to their previous models in construction. That said there has been a significant change this time round through the use of red paint which will look great along with boards such as the ASUS Crosshair V Formula. Other than the warranty stickers there is nothing on the bottom of the drive however the top has an information sticker which lists items such as the capacity.

Inside the drive Corsair use a green PCB for the Force GT and on the top side we can see the SandForce SF-2281 controller which is the same chip used in the Force 3 drives. There are 8 MLC NAND flash chips on either side of the board arranged in rows of four. These are ONFI synchronous flash modules manufactured by Micron and are branded 29F64G08CBAAB.

On the Force GT the NAND configuration used gives the drive a formatted capacity of 111GB in Windows 7.

Corsair rate their SATA 3 based 120GB Force GT at 555MB/s read with write at 515MB/s and this close ratio of read to write is once again down to the SandForce controller and its data management algorithms. This performance is then maintained by TRIM in operating systems such as Windows 7. For IOPS performance Corsair rate the drive at 85,000 on compressible data 4KB Random Write. Also worth noting is that this drive uses 2.5w when active.

Finally, the drive has a reliability specification of 2 million hours and a warranty of 3-Years.
