    Default Updating drivers/programs X58A-UD3R

    Quick thoughts one which drivers/programs to update and which ones are to be left alone? Over the last year I've updated the BIOS and video drivers, along with other drivers like the audio driver but have left the Intel INF, rapid storage and RAID ROM alone. Should I consider updating these and a few others, ie JMicron, NEC, Marvell? Any and all opinions are welcome.

    It all depends on who you ask. Some say if its not broke dont fix it. But then again new drivers or bios/firmware will add features also. My take is update update update. Make sure the operating system is fully updated along with ALL drivers. Make sure you have the latest bios and or firmware.

    Raid rom or any other "ROM" has to be modded into the bios or just download a bios that has been modded with the latest versions.

    Edit here is a link to a list of modded bios's for X58. Your board should be listed here. Computertechnik JZelectronic

    Do you know if the Fh1 BIOS listed at your link is the same as one one here at Tweaktown? Also, does it include the Intel RAID ROM 11.0?
