I need some help finding drivers for my computer, would also help with a link where they update reguarly!

Can someone help me find the newest drivers for:
1. Intel Core i7-2670QM (2.20GHz) | Addon question: is this 8 cores? In device manager it show 8processors.
2. Nvidia GeForce GTX 560M

Is there any other drivers I should upgrade to get max performance?

I am also looking for some programs that can mesure heat and such. Any other programs that could be usefull?

Do you mean the chipset? Windows itself has drivers for the processor. Here's the chipset driver. (http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_Desc.aspx?agr=Y&ProdId=3321&DwnldID=20019&ProductFamily=Chipsets&ProductLine=Laptop+Chipsets&ProductProduct=Mobile+Intel%AE+6+Series+Chipset&lang=eng)


2. Nvidia GeForce GTX 560M

Here's the latest official WHQL release. (http://www.nvidia.com/object/notebook-win7-winvista-64bit-285.62-whql-driver.html)

HWinFO64 (http://www.hwinfo.com/download64.html) is an excellent utility for these purposes.

Depends on the driver. WIth WLAN drivers, it's good to uninstall first, but with most others, that's not necessary.

For the chipset, follow the directions at the bottom of this post. (http://rog.asus.com/forum/showthread.php?5224-Drivers-Apps-and-How-to-s&p=38072&viewfull=1#post38072) For the Nvidia driver, there's an option during setup for "Clean Installing" the driver, and that removes the remnants of previous drivers. (Note that this also removes any custom settings you've made in the Nvidia Control Panel.)

Some drivers are listed in the Control Panel-> Uninstall Programs window. Others are only found in Device Manager.
