Corsair Force LE 480GB TLC SSD Review (PN# CSSD-F480GBLEB)

Corsair Force LE 480GB TLC SSD, A Closer Look

Featuring the world renowned Corsair Black scheme, the Force LE 480GB TLC SSD will inconspicuously set in your chassis effectively revving up your computer’s speed (compared to platter drives).

Featuring a standard SATA 3 6Gb/s interface, the SATA 3 interface is really the speed limit on SATA SSD’s. Newer M.2 and NVME drives can far exceed the speed of SATA 3, as the older standard is limited to around 560MB/s. Theoretically, speeds could be higher, but due to overhead data transaction costs, the real speed tops out at about 560MB/s.

The back of the Corsair Force LE has the semi-standard label with capacity, part number and certifications and warnings. The back also shows the standard SATA connector. On a side note, SATA is still the most common connector and especially in laptops the predominate connector. We have seen newer more expensive models of laptops with M.2 interfaces which are a long overdue laptop feature.

Undervolting the RTX 3080 and the RTX3090

What if you could find a way to lower both the temperature and the power consumption of your new GPU while still getting almost the same performance? Well, there is. It is called undervolting. Since the RTX 3080 and RTX 3090 came out there has been a lot of talk about undervolting them to get better thermals while still getting kick-ass performance and of course I decided I wanted to try it out myself. In the following pages you can both read on how to do it yourself but also get an idea how it will affect both the performance but also the thermals (and noise level).

At the same time Nvidia released the excellent RTX 3080 they also released the RTX 3090, a successor to both the RTX 2080 Ti and the Titan RTX. While the RTX 3080 comes with 16 GB VRAM, Nvidia has put a whopping 24 GB VRAM on the RTX 3090. In addition the RTX 3090 comes with 10496 CUDA cores (up from 8704 for the RTX 3080), 82 Streaming Multiprocessors, a wider memory interface and almost 1 TB/s in memory bandwith. Today I am looking at the Gigabyte RTX 3090 Eagle OC 24 GB. As the name implies it comes with a (minor) overclock. How much faster is it than the Gigabyte RTX 3080 Eagle OC? Is it worth the extra money? Read on to to get the answers on these and many other questions.
