    Default Z77 Extreme6 driver issues !

    Hello everybody
    I've to format my rig with following specs:
    mobo: z77 Extreme6
    CPUI: I3570k
    RAM: 8 Gb (2x4Gb) DDR3 G.Skill Ares F3 -1866C9D
    GPU: VGA MSI nVidia GeForce GTX760 Twin Frozr
    SSD: Samsung 830 128 Gb
    HDD: Samsung 750Gb + WD 1000 Gb Green
    I've to install Windows 8 and then upgrade to windows 8.1. I've seen there are different drivers in the support site for my mobo for Win 8 and for Win 8.1. My questions are:
    1. After installing Window 8 do I have to install all the windows 8 driver ? Is there an optimal sequence for that ?
    2. After updating to Win 8.1 do I have to install all the Win 8.1 drivers ? Is there an optimal sequence for that ?
    3. do I have to install the drivers before windows completed its updates ?
    3. do you suggest using driver updater software ?
    4. I'm not an expert guy in formatting and installing and I'm very scared by BSOD risks (such as Watchdog violation and others) so any advice is welcome and appreciated very much.
    Thanks in advance

    1, 2, 3: I do the remaining ones right after Windows finishes installing.

    Windows itself will undoubtedly install as many in the box drivers during installation.

    4: No driver updaters of ANY kind or renown gets used here. Hokey IMO.

    I also disable Windows Update from updating any drivers so that it doesn't hose up any drivers of my choosing.
