  • Be Quiet Dark Rock Pro C1 CPU cooler
  • Asus P8P67 LE motherboard
  • 4GB DDR3 RAM @ 1600MHz
  • AMD Radeon HD5670



  • Corsair Force 3 120GB
  • Corsair Force GT 120GB
  • OCZ Vertex 2 120GB
  • Seagate Barracuda 7200.11 1.5TB 


Software used:

  • Microsoft® Windows 7 Ultimate x64 SP1
  • ATTO disk Benchmark
  • CrystalMark 3.0 x64
  • Blackmagic Disk Speed Test
  • IOMeter
  • SiSoft Sandra
  • AS SSD
  • Mathworks Matlab
  • Autodesk AutoCAD 2012


To ensure the repeatability of the drive’s performance and verify our results, each benchmark was repeated three times and the median result is being displayed in this review.

Editor’s note: For the Force 3 drive to achieve its maximum performance, it needs to be connected to a SATA-3 port. Connecting the drive to a SATA-2 port will have a considerable negative impact on its performance.
