Corsair, a worldwide leader in high-performance computer and flash memory products, today announced that it has set a new world record score in PC Mark Vantage, using a performance PC powered by eleven Corsair Force Series F200 SSDs in a high bandwidth RAID configuration.

The World Record score of 32,947 was achieved by a Corsair-built system based around the Intel Core i7-980X six-core processor, cooled to sub-zero temperatures. The system was powered by a Corsair HX1000W PSU, 6GB of Corsair Dominator GTX2 memory, and eleven 200GB Force Series F200 SSDs. The recently-announced Force Series SSDs utilize the sophisticated SandForce SF-1200 SSD Processor to deliver unparalleled sequential and random read/write performance.



Using liquid nitrogen on a Kingpin Cooling F1EE LN2 pot, the team at Corsair's Labs in Fremont, California, overclocked the Intel Core i7-980X processor to a frequency of 5791MHz and The Corsair Dominator GTX2 memory to a frequency of 2144MHz, CL 7. Combined with the incredible performance of eleven Force Series F200 SSDs in RAID 0 using an Areca ARC-1680D-IX-12 PCI-E RAID controller, Corsair was able to smash the previous world record score of 31,333 by 1,614 points.

"Enthusiasts are accustomed to seeing Corsair breaking DRAM speed records, but this latest world record success clearly demonstrates that Corsair now offers class-leading products in other product categories too," said Andy Paul, President and CEO of Corsair. "The incredible data throughput provided by eleven Force Series SSDs in RAID 0, together with a Corsair HX1000W power supply and Dominator GTX memory, proved to be an unbeatable combination for this extreme-performance PC."

The complete list of components used in the record-breaking Corsair PC can be seen below:
  • 11 x Corsair Force Series F200 SSDs
  • 6GB Corsair Dominator GTX2 DDR3 @ 2144MHz
  • Corsair Professional Series HX1000W power supply
  • Intel Core i7-980X processor
  • ATI Radeon HD 5870 graphics card
  • EVGA X58 Classified motherboard
  • Kingpin Cooling F1EE Liquid Nitrogen pot
  • Areca ARC-1680D-IX-12 PCI-E RAID card

So now these will go up in price...I hope not, Corsairs SSDs seem to be pretty good but are a bit more than say OCZs or Kingstons.
