Like I said, you need this if you are using any of the SATA ports that are controlled by the Intel chipset - and I hope that you are because this is the absolute best one in terms of speed and reliability.


You're welcome, and thanks for the kind gesture in the form of the Rep+ even though I'm not trying to get a Rep+ at all (nor am I concerned about it). wink.gif
i know you're not ive been following your forums, and you give great advice. Last questions unrelated. my friend wants to know if his pc, i5 2500k, asus z77 pro, samsung 850 evo 250 gb , 2x4gb value ram corsair (8gb) , thermalright silver arrow (2 fans). could he run a Gtx 780 Asus strix 6GB
this one https://www.asus.com/Graphics-Cards/STRIXGTX780OC6GD5/ .
will a 650 w superflower Leader Gold be enough ? or does he need to upgrade his PSU as well for the graphic card ?

The PSU is overkill, so he's fine, and yeah the GTX 780 won't be bottlenecked at all. I have a GTX 780 as you can see in my sig rig, and it's great.

 

You might notice my PSU: it was at an extra low price that I couldn't pass up. So, I don't have the original HX650 because I need it, but it's because it was cheap. :)

rep +. i think thats the best i could do to return the favor. even though its not much. hes glad he didnt need to spend the extra cash on a PSU, since his superflower leadex gold 650w is enough smile.gif.
he was deciding between GTx 780 Asus strix 6GB version or a MSI Gaming 970 4G (the red dragon). hes using a 1440p monitor. but if either of the 2 card isnt powerful enough to play 1440p hes just go with 1080p resolution smile.gif but which of the 2 should he buy ? same price

  • Audio: If you are using the onboard audio, then you need "Realtek Audio Driver V6.0.1.7525(SonicRadar V2.1.2401) for Windows 7/8/8.1 32bit & 64bit /10 64bit.(WHQL)". If you have a sound card, then don't install this one.
  • VGA: If you have a video card, the don't install this one. If you are using the onboard video, then install the first one labeled "Intel(R) Graphics Accelerator Driver V10.18.14.4206 for Windows 7/8/8.1 64bit.(WHQL) Intel(R) Graphics Accelerator Driver V10.18.15.4248 for Windows 10 64bit.(WHQL)" (yeah, the one that has two names for some reason)
  • LAN: If you are using the onboard ethernet controller, then install the first one that has two names, just like the VGA one does. If you are using your own store-bought ethernet adapter (Network Interface Card), then that would mean that you don't need this driver.
  • USB: If you're using it, install this driver. If not, then don't.
  • SATA: This one is a bit tricky, so I need to discuss it below....

For the SATA section, I am hoping that you are only using the Intel-controlled SATA ports and NOT the ASMedia SATA ports.

I don't know if you need Smart Connect or Rapid Start Technology. You may need to do some research on that one. After all, it's your computer, so you know what you will need.


For the other categories that I didn't mention, you don't need to worry about them.

For the things that you're not using, you should be able to disable them in the BIOS too.
do i need to download ? intel® Management Engine Interface?

Nope - or at least I've never needed it. I forgot to mention that if I didn't list it, then you shouldn't need it at all. I went through the entire page that you linked to in your original post.

If you have your drives connected to the SATA ports that are on the Intel SATA controller, then installing Intel's Rapid Storage Technology driver will enable your SATA performance to be at its best.

 

If your drives are connected to the SATA ports that are controlled by the ASMedia controller, then switch them to the Intel SATA ports because the ASMedia controller sucks and will limit your performance.

 

I just read what I posted yesterday and holy crap I must have been way off my game. I barely explained anything about the SATA drivers. Yikes. I apologize.
