    Default Do I need This New Driver Ver For X48-DS4 ?

    I was checking Gigabyte USA for any new driver releases & saw this:

    Intel ICH9R/ICH10R SATA RAID Driver

    I do not use any type of RAID & do not plan to. Is this driver just for RAID related stuff or does it include more general updates related to my c/s ?

    Thanks

    I could be wrong, but I don't think you need it. I did not download it and my internal SATA hard drive on my X48-DS4 works just fine.

    Yeah I really don't like upgrading if it's not necessary. Why fix something that aint broke...that's my motto.

    I was not having any obvious problems with my F1 bios but F2 made some revisions that had to do with my cpu so I upgraded to it. Always make me nervous doing a bios flash but LSD's faq on it made things easy.

    If you do not use RAID or AHCI then no, and even if you do use either you would not "Need" to update them, but you could if you wanted.

    What you should update regularly is chipset drivers though >>>

    Great. I grabbed the latest chipset driver.

    Wonder if I should load my "default" bios profile (right now i'm o/c'ed) before chipset driver install ?

    Thanks.
