SMBUS should be the chipset drivers.

Can you post an exact link to NVIDIAS site to the driver that meet you hardware spec?
Then we can look at it and perhaps extract the relevant inf files.

So here is what you do:
1. Run the installation until it has upacked the drivers to default directory
2. Cancel the installation
3. Go to default directory: C:\NVIDIA\nForceWin7Vista64Int\15.58\SMBUS
4. There are the unpacked drivers.

Note: if you change the default directory, the drivers will be in the directory you changed it to.

It's not that it's a matter of if it's official. Its if it's a matter that if need specifically the chipset driver, those drivers will work. What makes you so sure ?

Well, my outpout is dependant on your input.
You claim it is for a motherboard, yet link to a graphic card.
However, both Nvidia and AMD have Southbridge chipsets for Motherboards, and they are often bundled with the graphic card drivers, lately.

But if you also provide the exact type (manufacturer and model) of your motherboard, I may be even more certain.
Ususally the worst thing that happens (with W7) is that it tells you that the driver is wrong for that hardware.
