Windows 7: What mainboard software should I install after installing W7?

What mainboard software should I install after installing W7?

I have just installed W7 premium 64-bit on an Asus P5K premium mainboard. The Asus website lists various software downloads for this mainboard. Some of them are:

Intel Chipset Software Installation Utility V9.1.1.1019
Marvell Yukon Gigabit Ethernet Driver V11.10.5.3
ATK0110 driver Intel Matrix Storage Manager Driver V8.9.0.1023
JMicron JMB36X(JMB363) Controller Driver V1.17.49.4

I think the Marvell driver got installed by Windows 7 "automatically". However, I don't know where to look inside my W7 installation to double-check this. What about the other software listed above? Is there a way of checking my W7 installation to see if this other software has already been automatically installed from the W7 DVD-ROM?

Thanks a lot for any advice.

Click on the Start icon and type "device manager" in the search field.
Post a screenshot of your device manager.

You definitely want to install your latest chipset driver.

From what I can see, you have everything installed.
Feel free to update your drivers. The ASUS drivers on their are out of date.

Device Manager looks pretty good. The thing to look for is a yellow question mark against a device - this indicates that Windows 7 hasn't found a driver for it.

That said, Windows 7 and Windows Updates are very good at finding drivers for all your hardware.

Always use the OEM manufacturer's website for driver updates. Not the Windows updater as it loves to misled.

I would not change out any drivers not given by the installer or optional Windows Updates unless performance points to those drivers. This is not XP. Win7 is driver-complete in the installer and Updates with few exceptions.
