Device manager ~ other devices ~ unknown.

They've been there for months upon months. I don't see any difference to my computer but I feel like it's the time to address it. I can't update them and I don't see any information relating to what they are.

Is there any steps I could take to find out?

The System Management Controller (aka SM Bus controller) is not running. This is a part of your motherboard chipset that manages voltage and temperature sensors. Try running HWINFO64 and it will probably not be reporting temps and voltages correctly right now. Then go here:

ASRock > FM2A55M-HD+

and download and run the AMD all-in-one driver for your motherboard (Win7, not Win10), then reboot, then run hwinfo64 again and it should be working correctly and your device manager should look clean

On new MB and CPU, M$ is blocking the updates.
Unofficial Patch Unblocks Windows 7 and 8.1 Updates for Kaby Lake, Ryzen - ExtremeTech

My suggestion is to use the offline and security ONLY updates

got that from your specs. But yes, you just need the chipset driver for your motherboard.
