Corsair Force MP500 240GB M.2 NVMe SSD Review, Ridiculously Fast!!!

Test Rig & Setup

There’s really no big need to go into the entire test rig we used, we used an Asus Maximus VIII Extreme motherboard with a 6700K Skylake processor under triple radiator water cooling to prevent any throttling. We set the Corsair Force LE TLC SSD as the boot drive using Windows 10 fully updated with the latest drivers and all updated software. We ran the rig at stock speed as well as the GPU at stock speed for all the Corsair SSD testing.

We also test on a desktop rig, as laptop chipsets sometimes fall short on being able to run drives at their full speed. Using a desktop shows you the potential of the drive to it’s fullest extent. If you happen to have an aging four or five-year-old laptop, your chipset might not give you prime speeds from any modern drive.

We run each test three times and take the median run and present it here.

Here’s the CPU-Z System report for our test rig.
