What chipsets to load with new SSD?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I am about to install my M4 and I already updated the mobo BIOS to 1904 and setup hot plugging in the bios as well. Now I went to ASUS site for driver downloads here and I am confused as to if I should load everything on that page or not? ALso some of them look pretty old like the chipset ones. I tried to search on Intels site for the current ones but I honestly do not even know how to use their serch since I cant find anythiing in their search boxes that looks familiar to me and my hardware. Any help would be great.

I want to use my old HDD as backup and storage and I guess I will use steammover for games and I guess I could use it for the /user folder as well correct?

You should plug it into one of the Intel SATA6 ports and put it into AHCI in bios and use this driver, it's the latest IntelRapidStorage.

Is that the only thing I will need to install? I thought i needed to install the audio drivers and chipset, lan, and various others?

Sorry, I didn't realise you were doing a clean windows install - that's just what you need for the SSD. Yeah, you'll need the chipset, lan and audio. Windows update should find them but I'd get the latest chipset driver from Intel.

This is the order in which you should install drivers for ASUS:
  1. Chipset driver (just run the automatic search for drivers on Intel site)
  2. ATK package
  3. VGA driver
  4. Audio driver
  5. SATA driver (Intel Rapid Storage Technology)
  6. LAN driver
  7. Other drivers
  8. Utilities (optional, if you don't like Asus apps just skip it)
  9. Microsoft updates

I did not know this ahead of time so I know it was not done in that order. I think I installed the LAN drivers first so I could get the internet working then i did the chipset and video then audio the Rapid storage.

Not sure what affect it is having at this time. I seem to get good read/write speeds. Although cold boot time was 42-43sec and last night restart time was 53sec with GUI off and time to kill and shut down set to 1000 and time out set to 0. I have very few start up programs like steam MSI afterburner, CCC, and rapid storage starting up. With also 2 logitech programs starting as well for the G13 keymaping and Applets.
