Normally when I build a new system I install the drivers and anything else I might want from the DVD included with the motherboard.  Then I visit the motherboard site and install any updated drivers, UEFI/BIOS etc.  In this instance though I did a clean install of Windows 8.1 on an empty hard drive on a previously used motherboard.  Everything is running without issues and there are no yellow triangles in the device manager so it would appear all is as it should be.  I'm kind of curious though if it is necessary to install chipset drivers manually or if Windows has already installed all up to date software.  Normally I'm a if it ain't broke don't fix it guy but I'd most certainly update things for a bit better performance.  What would you do?

IMO it is always good to install MB drivers, then ancillary item drivers.

Good morning Phil.  I went ahead and installed drivers from the ASUS site.  I also discovered that Intel has a driver update utility that will scan your system and look for updated drivers.  It didn't find anything for this computer so I guess my driver install was successful.
