    Default Best chipset drivers

    Ok, this question is starting to drive me nuts and I hope you guys have some good answers. Is it better to get my 990fx chipset driver from asus, or directly from amd. Amd seems to have the latest release dates/revisions, but I can't help but wonder if asus optimizes the chipset driver themselves specifically for their boards, which might be why they aren't updated as often as amd.

    What do you guys think is better to install?

    Bios and Chipset drivers, I get from the manufacturer. This way I know that they are happy with the way it interacts with my board.
    They're the ones who have to stand behind the product, so they have a vested interest in getting it right.

    Now, that said, if I hear of a new and exciting chipset improvment released by AMD or Intel, I'll get it and try it too.

    For the most part they are the same but AMD or Intel with release newer ones first. It is up to board maker to update site for new drivers. They are not the best at this lol. IF it is not something in their current product stack then you may never see the update.

    Like Neil said I will go to AMD or Intel to get the newest release.

    Yeah, asus has been pretty good about releasing bios updates, and in fact I just flashed last night to a latest revision for my board, but they've kept chipset drivers from last year. Amd actually has an update from a couple months ago so that was the reason why I asked. The crosshair v formula-z is the product for amd right now so I couldn't imagine them getting behind this soon, but you never know.

    I've found that the squeaky wheel gets the grease. If you're having a problem that they can duplicate and you're vocal about it. They WILL address it with a BIOS or driver update. I'm sure that they get many of their drivers from vendors and make sure that they work with their products before they post them to their site, but if nobody's squeaking, why bother?

    Hey guys, I just used Live Update 5 from MSI to get the latest Bios and chipsets. I have an MSI 870-G45 ( MS-7599) board. After flashing it I got a CMOS Checksum Bad where I have to hit F1 for setup or F2 to continue with default. One thing that I noticed is it erased my overclock that I though I had saved in BIOS. Oh well, the thing I can't figure out is why I am getting the CMOS checksum bad and how to fix it.

    It removing your overclock is normal. A bios flash copies over your previous settings. Now for the checksum error. Have you went into bios changed anything an saved it? If you have and still getting the error try to flash the bios again.

    Thank you sir! After saving in BIOS the checksum bad went away. Here is something else I can't figure out...I have a SSD which is C: drive and a HDD for D: drive. I did a clean install on the SSD the other day and now its like the D: drive is no where to be found in my computer but I can see it in the BIOS.

    No problem. Glad it was an easy fix.

    Was the drive on D: brand new? Either way you need to go look in Disk Management and see if the drive is shown in there. You may need to right click on the left section of the drive you need and select Initialize Disk. It should assign a drive letter as well.

    How to get to disk management.


    1. Click on the Start button and then choose Control Panel.
    2. Click on the System and Security link.
      Note: If you're viewing the Large icons or Small icons view of Control Panel, you won't see this link so just click on the Administrative Tools icon and skip to Step 4.
    3. In the System and Security window, click on the Administrative Tools heading located near the bottom of the window.
    4. In the Administrative Tools window, double-click on the Computer Management icon.
    5. When Computer Management opens, click on Disk Management on the left side of the window, located under Storage.
      After a brief loading period, Disk Management should now appear on the right side of the Computer Management window.
      Note: If you don't see Disk Management listed, you may need to click on the |> icon to the left of the Storage icon.
    6. You can now partition a hard drive, format a hard drive, change a drive's letter, or do whatever else you need to do in Windows 7's Disk Management tool.
