Just extract the files into the folder of your choice, then goto the device manager and update the driver. You have to tell it to manually locate the driver, just put in the drive/folder name where you unzipped the file. Like I mentioned, it took a couple of installs/reboots for the driver to "stick" to the smbus.

I hope this helps (tip my scales )
Thanks

I'm curious why not just install the very latest Intel Chipset driver package with the installer utility from Intel? For me, they didn't take a couple tries to stick.

Thank you for this. Advisory to anyone else with similar specs to me, this driver pack has worked in Seven X64 Ultimate Beta, on a Gigabyte GA-X38-DQ6 board running a E6850 C2D @ 3.2GHz (8 X 400).
