Driver Explanation

Hi,

I made a fresh installation and im about to install the drivers of my mainboard. I want to keep my Pc as "clean" as possible so I would like to know what some drivers are for and if its necessary to install them?

What are they for
Intel(R) Management Engine Interface V10.0.0.1204 for Windows 7/8/8.1 32bit & 64bit.(WHQL)
Asmedia USB3.1/3.0 Driver V1.16.23.0 for Windows 7/8/8.1 32bit & 64bit.(WHQL)
Asmedia USB Controller Driver V2.0.8.1 for Windows 7/8/8.1 32bit & 64bit.(WHQL)

I didnt install the usb drivers because everything is running fine but is it still better to install them?
What is the difference between the Usb 3.0 driver and the Controller driver?

Thanks!!

I'm kind of curious what these windows you talk about are actually saying. When you say it didnt install, what makes you think it didnt? I still think it is just overwriting your previous install of Asmedia drivers. (possibly) When you click "ok" in the last window described, maybe that is the final install window... If you end up installing again take a screenshot or record what the window says.

But again. If it ain't broke dont fix it. I think it's far from broke. And the fact that device manager is saying that Asmedia drivers are installed is saying a lot. I honestly think that everytime you "unsuccessfully installed" the drivers it actually installed them. I wouldn't mess with it.

Also, for future reference, this forum is for the rampage V extreme motherboards only. Not that you aren't welcome, and I understand the need to get your system stable. But next time please dont steal someone elses thread and make your own in the proper forum. HERE:
