Jack my ASUS Sabertooth also has Thermal Radar which I found to be less than useful as I did Corsair link. I did have both installed then uninstalled them but have no Base System Devices listed as you do.

Have you run CCleaner's registry cleaner? There may be a few bits left over considering you have 33 of these. Also try Revo Uninstaller to see if it lists either Corsair Link or Thermal Radar. Link for both in my sig.

Your Base System device drivers are included in Intel's chipset driver for the Intel(R) Xeon(R) E5 v2/Core i7

Curiosity question. What version of BIOS are you running? I looked at the ASUS support site. The Sabertooth X79 board started support for the Xeon E5 in BIOS v4502. Did you update your BIOS to v4502? Could be the update enabled those devices (though they're not needed for your CPU - nor are their drivers loaded). (In any case, could explain why those devices are on your board)

Anyway, is just a theory.. So curious which BIOS you're running.

More good ideas.
I do have bios 4502 because it's the only bios that works with this cpu even though it's not a xeon.

Yes I do use Ccleander and REVO and I don't see anything looking goofy.
Boy of boy so many choices. I think I will just leave them there. I had a lot of problems with this motherboard so I don't want to screw things up.

Thanks to everybody for your help and suggestions.

I wish we could have found why they are there for you Jack, it's something that would drive me nuts. Plus it would be good info for the future.

There may be a way to prove those devices are real hardware on the m/b

Open DevMgr. Click View->Devices by connection. DevMgr now displays your devices based on how they connect to one another. Expand the ACPI device. Now, expand the 2nd ACPI child device you'll see. Next, expand the PCI bus.
> Do you see the Base System devices? Are they connected to the PCI bus?

I once had a case where what i thought was a real USB device turned out to be a virtual device connected to a virtual bus! (this is one way to check- as the virtual bus connection was revealed)

If you right click the Base System device->Uninstall and reboot. The plug and play hardware will be re-detected. The "Base System" device should reappear (since it's real but has no driver)

/* EDIT */
p.s. The device name "Base System" is a side affect because no driver was found. That's the name burned into the device firmware by the vendor

I tried your suggestion.
Yes they are under the PCI bus but only two of them at the top of the list.
PCI bus 0 device 5, function 0
PCI bus 0 device 5, function 2
I deleted them and rebooted.
Things came out the same as they were.
Farther down the list a bunch of PCI bus 255. (Base System Devices)

All the PCI bus 255 have various devices and functions.
They all have various devices from 8, function 0.
To PCI bus 255 device 22 function 2

Did my suggestion in post #4 not help you or did you just ignore it?

No I have not ignored your suggestion.
I just like to try other things before installing a new program and using it. I Leary of programs that want to update drivers that Windows 7 says they are up to date.
I'm using it now on the problem computer and will let you all know the results.

OK, what about the Unknown device? Have you tried to delete it and reboot? See if Microsoft will recognize it this time around? Worth a try.
