Corsair Force MP510 M.2 2280 480GB PCI-Express 3.0 x4 review

A great option for your OS drive, but be cautious of the SSD Toolbox.

What’s the skinny? The Corsair Force MP510 M.2 NVMe PCIe 3.0 x4 TLC SSD is a solid performer, with an 800TBW rating. Meaning it should last a long time as your main OS drive.

I have been using the Corsair Force MP510 drive for about two weeks now and have been very happy with its performance. The Corsair SSD Toolbox, on the other hand, has been a nightmare. I have tried to install it three times now, and each time it renders my PC unusable, forcing me to restart my PC. I managed to get it installed to the point where I could uninstall it completely. I would either avoid the software altogether or wait for some further updates on the software. The version I tried was V1.2.5.7. I was attempting to install it on a clean install of windows 10 with all of its current updates installed. OS Version 20H2.

As you can see in the image above, the Crystal Disk Mark scores are pretty much as advertised by Corsair. I put a couple of games that I am currently playing on the drive to test load times, and I was pleasantly surprised. I had my games ( AC Valhalla and Cyberpunk 2077) on an Intel 660P SSD, so I wasn’t expecting too much of a noticeable difference. Both Cyberpunk and AC Valhalla loaded in what felt like half the time on the new Corsair Force 510 NVMe SSD.
