    Intel ME driver or Intel Chipset drivers or both for Z490-A

    On my z490-A boards page it only lists the intel ME driver. Not the intel chipset drivers. Does this board not need chipset drivers and just need the ME driver?

    Also where can I download the latest ME drivers at for z490 chipset? Nothing points to anything on google for this chipset. Is there ME firmware I can upgrade also?

    You guys have any idea? Thanks a bunch!

    So I have a question. The image I attached. Will your SATA/AHCI/RAID drivers update in my device manager the intel raid 0 volume under disk drives or will it update under storage controllers the intel chipset sata/pcie rst premium controller drivers?

    Because I downloaded the Intel(R) Rapid Storage Technology Driver Software V17.9.4.1017 from asus website for my board. Are your drivers an updated version of what's on asus website? I tried installing your drivers but could not. They just failed on me. For the raid that is. Realtek, chipset, mei firmware and mei drivers all worked fine. Just have those questions about your RAID drivers. Thanks!

    I figured it out. The drivers you listed for RAID are older than the drivers listed on asus website for my board. I looked at the timestamps for your drivers and what is in the RST drivers from asus web. Your timestamps are from the month of 7 and on asus site it is the month of 8. So, to me, it looks like there are updated drivers on asus website. Maybe that is why I couldn't install them. Yours is an older version. Maybe. Just thinking.
