    You tell him

    Anyway guys, if you want the latest Intel RST, Intel ME and NVME (samsung etc) go here : https://www.win-raid.com/forum.php

    I've been using this site for many years now, you can normally get the newer whql drivers before they are even released on the Intel site and also give feedback on them on the forum they have.

    Something to note - Dont wait for Asus to update drivers on your motherboards product page, you'll be waiting a long time, but do check for bios updates if you are encountering some stability issues (beware, newer bios's from Asus are not always more stable so only update if you really need to).

    Doesn't matter. They are unofficial drivers. You are taking risk installing drivers from third party. Intel will release drivers when it's time and needed.Samung and other vendors will do the same. People are driver crazy thinking that installing these drivers will make a big diffrerence. Wrong! You will not see any major changes. New drivers from Intel points to new chipsets, bug fixes, Windows updates, and security. You will not see improvements in speed or anything like that. People are just going crazy with drivers for no reason. Same thing goes for Video drivers. You can play new games with older drivers without any problem. Nvidia and AMD just know people demands new drivers because they think they will make a big difference. Overclockers are in the same boat. They believe that if they overclock their computer with 200 MHz it will make their computer fly. WRONG again. You can not see any improvement in games and apps (Windows)

    They are WHQL drivers, there are also custom drivers but the WHQL are there and are more recent than even the ones on intel site......

    What is your problem? You should clean up your keyboard, your caps-lock seem to be acting up.

    The OEM specific drivers provided by Asus are WHQL drivers provided to them by Intel. (Unless tagged as beta.)
    These are just as "official" as the realtek drivers provided to Asus for their "SupremeFX" audio, which in the past required a slightly modified driver package for supporting the added amplifier.

    Even Intel themselves often recommends that users should use the OEM provided drivers instead of the ones supplied on Intels website.

    I'll never recommend a regular user to download unofficial drivers from sources such as win-raid or station-drivers. Get the most up-to-date driver from either the OEM or AMD/Intel.

    If you don't want to use OEM WHQL drivers, feel free to use the audio driver from realteks website, which is outdated and doesn't even officially support Windows 10 "Fall Update" or the "recent" Spring Update.
    You'd be better off using the generic realtek driver provided by Windows Update.

    If the chipset source has the most up-to-date driver for your device, then there is no issue.
    Though motherboard providers often have a more up-to-date driver. As an example, Intel offers Management Engine 11.7.0.1068 on their website and Asus has a WHQL version based on 12.0.xxxx and Gigabyte uses driver version 17.8.50.xxxx.
    The same situation was happening to their RST drivers, until Intel finally updated them in late July to fully support the Spring Update that arrived in April/May.

    So, instead of counting on that the chipset source has the latest driver available, check with both OEM and AMD/Intel and pick the the one that is up-to-date. If having the latest is important to you or the system user.

    It has been over 1 month and drivers still have not been updated for the following boards.
    Asus Maximus x hero, Maximus x hero wifi/ac, Maximus x Code, Maximus x Formula and maximus x Apex.

    Although i am not having any issues on current drivers including Supreme FX audio,
    it would nice if someone can officially inform us if it is safe to use these updated drivers or wait until they get listed on the support page.

    BTW i am on windows 10 x64 Redstone 4 april update..

    Having a PRIME Z370-A myself, which is not a ROG but did receive the 25/07/18 driver update bundle for Chipset (incl. ME), GFX, Sata and LAN but without the Audio, where i think both Z370-A and Z370 ROG related MBs share the same device. I could be mistaken though, for that being the reason it wasn't updated as well.

    Z370-A PRIME: Realtek® S1220A 8-Channel High Definition Audio CODEC featuring Crystal Sound 3
    Z370 ROG: ROG SupremeFX 8-Channel High Definition Audio CODEC S1220A

    So, either it takes time for them to re-conciliate all the motherboards drivers, or my audio device is different.
    In your case, it seems exactly the same device from the specification description.

    BTW, it also seems like the update for Intel LAN was added for the driver only, without any additional software features.
    So, in case you end up removing the existing driver first before installing the new one, you might be missing out on some additional features.

    Opened a thread here:

    https://rog.asus.com/forum/showthrea...17-10-7-Driver

    Its like they updated the driver but did not include it in the commutative package of the software features, which they tend to do with AI Suite 3 software normally, but only with a driver this time. Don't really like this approach, as drivers should be cumulative, and you can easily judge it is not from the size of the new package compared to the previous one.

    You left out most of the ROG Asus Strix boards, most of which don't have any new updates other than bios.

    I personally doubt we will see new drivers for 370 series boards unless something critical needs updating or fixing. Their focus will be on the 390 boards.

    You can use the Audio drivers from the Z370-F support page, they are exactly the same and will work, Asus has simply not updated the page with the new drivers, also the SATA, Chipset, MEI, LAN are all the same, the only possible difference is the WiFi and Bluetooth, not sure if the same chipset is used on all the boards, and I don't use WiFi or Bluetooth (Off in the BIOS) so I'm not sure what the latest is on those, but can be easily found out if you need help...let me know...

    Direct download for Realtek HD Audio drivers from ASUS here:
    https://dlcdnets.asus.com/pub/ASUS/m...677.1534999578

    Z370-F Support Page:
    https://www.asus.com/us/Motherboards...Desk_Download/

    Also if you want the latest drivers you can check out www.station-drivers.com or downloadcenter.intel.com/ Station-Drivers.com updates the site daily with new drivers, Intel does not.

    Here are the latest drivers for the Z370 boards..these drivers will work for all Z370 chipset boards. (Only possibility is the NIC card, some vendors use Realtek, or Killer NIC, Asus uses Intel NIC's model I219)

    Intel for the RST SATA (Intel Rapid Storage Technology) here:
    https://downloadcenter.intel.com/dow...ace-and-Driver

    Or if you want the absolute latest RST SATA driver here:
    https://www.station-drivers.com/inde...d=3604&lang=en

    Intel NIC (Network Interface Card) here:
    https://downloadcenter.intel.com/dow...?product=82187

    Intel HD Video (Integrated Video) here:
    https://downloadcenter.intel.com/dow...?product=98909
