These are the only drivers I installed:

1. Intel_LAN_Win7_8_VER181590
2. Intel_USB3_Win7_VER25019
3. IRST_Win7-8_8-1_VER12801016.

Everything else is just garbadge to me (You should try some drivers out for yourself, maybe there are some you might find handy). You should only install the realtek drivers if you are going to use 5.1 DTS option.

Download new drivers from here. Because the drivers on your disc might be outdated.

Okay updated most of those but the BIOS wasn't sure what version was stable I've got 1402, 1301, 1203, 1102, 1002, 0903 and the 0804 mentioned above to choose from.

And a bit of a side question while I'm here whats a good temp reader program I was using Speedfan but always hated the way it looked.

Two options ....

1. Have someone who does, copy them to a USB for you*
2. Download them from the Asus web site**

* I still have at least one box in the house / office that can read any format going back to 1990....dozen 100Mb zip drive cartridges anyone ?

** be aware that some utilities can only be installed from the CD. I didn't have any on this build but the hi end boards that come packed with OEM software have key codes unique tot he CD. On two my son's builds, Rampage III and WS Workstation, I had d/l'ed all the latest drivers and figured I'd forgo the CD installs. Typed in the CD keys for the utility / software on the CD sleeve and no workie. Called Asus and they told me that I had to install from the CD 1st, type in the CD key and THEN I could upgrade to the latest version. With the lack of an optical drive becoming more popular and even a source of pride for some, I don't think that practice can continue for too long if it hasn't stopped already.

I don't forsee myself being without one for the next 5 years or so .... no reasonable alternative available for long term storage of record documents. All my work has to be provided on optical media 'for record purposes" at project completion.

OS installed fine however during the process of loading HW drivers and windows update there were some restarts. On some restarts, it would hang at the windows animation screen with q code AO. I would have to reset the computer again and eventually get into windows after the black screen comes up asking if I want to start windows normally vs repairing. Not sure why it will get into the OS sometimes and on others it hangs.

Q code AO is fine, mine boots with that code most of the time (on rare occations code 40, but still no problems). I don't like that it locked up a few times during the restarts. To me that means something may have gotten borked and although functioning sometimes, it still has some errors in there. I ran into a few issues installing Win 8 from usb until I spotted that little button in bios that forces it to boot from a certain device. I love that button now. Honestly if it were me and I was installing from USB and ran into issues while installing drivers on a fresh install, I would start over. It installs quick, and once you get it installed the way you want image it.

Wouldn't normally post this in 2 places but I'm stuck at a impasse right now with my setup seeing as I need lan drivers to download the rest of my drivers. Which do I want for my Maximus hero? When I go to Asus's website it shows two options under lan, what's the difference between the two since ones 100mb better. Searching for the difference has become useless. Intel LAN Driver 72,28 MBytes and Intel(R) Gigabit Ethernet Driver 173,69 MBytes What's the difference, which is better, do I need both?

That I don't know. I copied the disk that came with the MB to flash drive and just ran the installations of all my drivers and software from there. Seems to be working fine. Doubt it's the newest but it's working great.

I would go for the newest which is this one: Intel_LAN_Win7-8_8-1_VER18.5.54.0

edit: I would highly recommend to install Asus Boot Settings (aka DirectBIOS), with that lil program you can go direct (after a restart) to the bios. No need to mash del or open the case.

I did the same thing. I just got the newest file I could find, which was Intel_LAN_Win7-8_8-1_VER185540 at the time.
