Windows 7: a few questions about my ABIT IP35-PRO motherboard drivers

a few questions about my ABIT IP35-PRO motherboard drivers

I am running Windows 7 Professional x64 Editionw/Service Pack 1
I have the latest and greatest beta bios from ABIT IP35 Pro Motherboard BIOS's
Date Code 2010/07/05
File: 2010-07-05 IP35 Pro 18ZZZ.rar
Release information:
1. BIOS modified by "Ligushka".
2. M629B18.ZZZ updated with:
a. Phoenix AHCI Option ROM 01.06.70 (08-13-2008)
b. Intel RAID/AHCI Option ROM 8.5.0.1030
c. JMicron JMB363 Option ROM 1.08.01.

My first question:
Id like to update my Abit ip35 pro motherboard chipset drivers.
The Intel p35 chipset that this motherboard uses is neither listed under the chipset software at the Intel downloadcenter website nor is it listed under the latest Intel Chipset Software Installation Utility compatible products list.......
Normally, i would download all motherboard drivers from the official hardware manufacturer, but-in this case- ABIT is out of business since 2009!
Will the Intel chipset software automatic installation utility really work with this motherboard and they just forgot to add it because it is an older model?
Or, can anyone please provide me with the LATEST direct link or website for the drivers?
EDIT: Thanks stormy13! Still looking for advice on question number 2.

My second question:
I have an SSD connected through external ESATA rear port and 2 regular hard drives connected through internal on-board SATA ports + dvd/cd burner connected with SATA.
Id like to update my SATA/IDE/SCSI/JMICRON/AHCI/ATA controllers and drivers.
-This motherboard has 6 internal sata connectors 3 Gb/s using the Intel ICH9R.
-This motherboard has 2 external sata connectors 3 Gb/s using the Jmicron JMB363.
Should i use the INTEL or the Jmicron SATA drivers (located at ftp://driver.jmicron.com.tw/SATA_Controller/Windows/) last updated on 6-15.2011?
Would the Intel software installation utility work?
Do i need to install Intel matrix storage installation utility if im not running RAID?
And this is the ftp index of the Jmicron sata drivers that i found
ftp://driver.jmicron.com.tw/SATA_Controller/Windows/


I want to update all these drivers/controllers because I've recently upgraded to a SSD and I've changed the bios sata and mass storage controllers from IDE to AHCI.

I'm always striving to achieve the greatest maximum performance for my hardware.

Thank you for your opinions.

Yes it will. Intel has way too many chipsets for them to list them all,

List of Intel chipsets - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

so they broke it down to series and families. Yours is part of the 3 Series.

Both if you are using both the internal and external ports.

See above.

As for the rest, I'll leave that to our Intel/SSD users to answer.

Thank you for the feedback. I wasn't aware they were separated into groups.
