I completed a small build for my daughter and as soon as I connected to the net it installed a graphics driver and when I started to do updates things were going wrong and the computer froze.Sometimes less means more.I have to remember to go into my windows settings before I connect to the internet and disable automatic updates.
I'm a minimalist myself...before a clean install I get LAN, Chipset and MEI drivers as well as sound and video on a pendrive...i don't connect internet until I have those installed...one by one with restart...so windows doesn't start downloading and installing stuff...
I don't really install anything else...no ai suite no corsair link type progs etc

Just a question,when you go to the motherboard support page what do you look for to download.
Before all else
Management engine interface
Then latest graphics and sound followed by the rest of need drivers.
I dont use the CD as 99.99% of the time the drivers on it are outdated. Before the install I go to mobo support page then vendor pages and get the latest of everything.
Too much software? Didnt realize there was such a thing. If you mean drivers you are either using what the hardware vendor supplies or windows default. Some default drivers work fine, as in NVMe, and there is no advantage to using the vendors drivers.
Its really about personal preference.
