Product Overview

An easy and affordable way to boost system performance up to 5x
Using an Accelerator Series solid-state cache drive can boost your system's read and write performance up to 5x compared to using a hard drive alone. Just add the cache drive to your system, download and install the intelligent caching software, and start enjoying faster boot times and quicker file access.

Automatic performance.
There are no new drive letters to manage, no need to manually move your programs or data, and no reinstalling of Microsoft Windows or your applications. Just connect the hardware, download and install the software, and restart your system.

The intelligent caching software, developed for Corsair by NVELO, automatically learns which files and programs you access the most and optimizes system performance by caching these to the Accelerator SSD. And because it learns as it goes, the caching gets more efficient the more consistently you use your PC.

Upgrade your upgrade experience.
You don't need to uninstall, reinstall, or move your existing hard drive. Just mount the Accelerator Series cache drive in an unused drive bay and attach a SATA cable and an internal power cable. Download and install the caching software, and you're ready to go.

Break the bottleneck without breaking the bank.
An Accelerator Series SSD is a great choice if you want to significantly boost your system's speed but you don't want to invest the time or cost of a complete system overhaul. Your PC will work just as it always has... just a lot more quickly.

30GB, 45GB, or 60GB -- how much do you need?
Adding an Accelerator Series SSD cache drive won’t increase your disk storage capacity as reported by Windows. Instead, it works invisibly behind the scenes to cache your hard drive’s data. Your hard drive’s size as reported by Windows will stay the same.

To choose the capacity that works best, add up the sizes of the applications and files that you use regularly. If you’re not sure, here’s a rule of thumb: if you’re using basic office applications, the 30GB model will do fine. If you play a lot of games or work with video and graphics files, consider the 45GB or 60GB model. And if you use your PC for professional graphics design or video production, you’ll definitely want the 60GB model.
