Hey everyone. Â*I amhaving a hard time understanding the drivers links here.

I was able to do the ME for my Z490-E and also the Ethernet Drivers but as far as the Chipset and other I’m unsure which one is actually my download. Can someone help me figure out the remaining drivers I need?

Thank you!Â*

Hi,

You need these firmware/drivers for your ASUS ROG Strix Z490-E Gaming motherboard :

[FIRMWARE] Intel ME (Z490)

[DRIVERS] Intel Chipset/MEI/SATA/VMD (1xx/2xx/3xx/4xx/5xx/6xx)

- Intel Chipset Drivers


- Intel MEI Drivers (Drivers Only)


- Intel SATA AHCI-RAID Drivers (Drivers Only) :

Drivers - 4xx/5xx


[DRIVERS] Intel Ethernet/WiFi/Bluetooth

- Intel Ethernet Drivers (Drivers Only) :

Drivers - I22x-V (2.5GbE)


- Intel WiFi Drivers (Drivers Only)


- Intel Bluetooth Drivers (Drivers Only)


[DRIVERS] Realtek Audio (MB | Intel 2xx/3xx/4xx/5xx/6xx & AMD 3xx/4xx/5xx)

You have an ASUS ROG SS3|DTS Sound Unbound motherboard, so :

You need Realtek Audio Drivers (UAD - ASUS ROG SS3-DTS MB) from the first post of the thread.

Follow scrupulously your CLEANUP process then your INSTALL process, for the next drivers packages that I would release, you will can directly follow your UPDATE process.

[X299 Only] You must install this add-on driver : Link (Right click on "Install.cmd" > Run as administrator > Automatic restart when install is done)



Hello,

I am running the 10920x on the Rampage VI Extreme Encore. Is the X299 chipset add-on driver still needed? I see the package files seems to be named Skylake whereas I am on Cascade Lake.

Thanks

Hi,

The Skylake-X CPUs (7xxxX-XE/9xxxX-XE) and Cascade Lake-X CPUs (10xxxX-XE) are still based on the Skylake-E architecture, so yes, you need it.

Hi,

I have a couple questions. I have the ROG Maximus XII Hero WiFi 490 board running BIOS 2103 and on the ASUS Support page for it most of the driver versions are out of date compared to what you have posted here @MoKiChU. What is the reason for this and I assume it's not necessarily unsafe to use these updated versions versus the ones from my mobo support page right? I updated my drivers using your CLEANUP and then INSTALL process earlier in beginning of year and am trying to update as much as I can again.

Also, I don't have this device when I check Device Manager - "WMI SoftwareComponent Driver : Software components > Intel(R) Management Engine WMI Provider" so I'm wondering what will happen when I install the chipset drivers that include all of these things as these don't appear in Driver Store or anywhere for me:

WMI SoftwareComponent Driver : 2130.1.15.0 WHQL [22/07/2021]
SOL SoftwareComponent Driver : 2042.0.13.0 [14/10/2020]
WiMAN Extension Driver : 2129.62.62.0 [25/07/2021]
WiMAN SoftwareComponent Driver : 2129.62.62.0 [25/07/2021]

Did intel stop making MEI updates for 300 series motherboards?


Hi,

Nothing suggests this.

Hi,

As I explained here, SOL SWC driver & WIMAN Ext+SWC drivers are unnecessary for most consumer users, so I therefore do not include them in my Intel MEI drivers packages, I include in the package only the imposed SWC drivers (Before : DAL, ICLS & LMS SWC drivers | Now : DAL, ICLS & WMI SWC drivers).

Note : If you are not using the latest drivers branch, you will not see WMI SWC device, but you will see LMS SWC device (Intel(R) Management and Security Application Local Management in your Software components category in your Device Manager) instead. So, once your drivers have been updated you will see WMI SWC device instead of LMS SWC device.

Ok understood thank you. I also see you listed Windows 11 for the OS requirement, should I not update my Z490 board with these current drivers you have listed if I'm still on Windows 10? Don't plan to upgrade to Windows 11 for quite some time.

Hi,

Windows 11 OS requirements only concerns the Intel VMD drivers for motherboards with Intel 6xx series chipsets to date.
