I'm actually wondering that myself. It's my understanding that Intel's LAN firmware is pretty good, as is their USB stuff.

I install Windows, then do the chipset, then let Windows update itself. After that the audio, lan, usb, and sata. Wireless and blue tooth if you use those, and all the stuff in utilities is a personal choice if you want them or not. The firmware section is also suggested if you have win8.

Get them from Intel (painful process) or from this thread.

Any notable differences between 1707 and the latest BIOS? Don't wanna lose my settings for nothing.

Do you do all of this from the CD? I generally do fresh installs disconnected from the internet.

...And I apparently need to do another fresh install because something, somewhere, is causing the computer to freeze. Meaning exactly that, too: everything just stops. Code doesnt change on the motherboard, fans keep spinning, but everything on-screen is frozen. Sometimes the mouse moves, sometimes not. At first it would just hang and give me a delay, but now it's taken to needing restarts. Maybe this is my MVG's way of saying it wants to be installed in a case and not on a cardboard box.

I suppose you can use the cd if you want it to be quick and easy, but I wouldn’t. You can go the Asus download page for your mobo and they are all listed there. Or you can go to the link Cloppy007 has in his post #2974 above for even more recent drivers.

A lot of people complaining about 320.18. I would go back to 314.22 until they figure out if 320.18 is actually harming cards.

You don't think it's the lack of physical support to keep the 460 TFII upright? I was worried about that since it's pretty wobbly.

The advise is appreciated regardless. I forgot that I had an mATX rear panel from Danger Den. Hopefully it'll add a little support.

Sorry, absolutely it could be an issue if it is pretty wobbly. Only way to know for sure is to test it, but with people up in arms about 320.18 I would go back to 314.22 when you reinstall everything.

Some extremely minor keyboard / mouse compatibility fixes, apparently.
