    Apex Fresh Install, Tons of Device Manager "Other Devices"

    I've just installed windows on my new Rampage VI Apex board and have a ton of "other devices" listed in Device manager. I upgraded the BIOS and the ME Firmware and the PC seems to run well but this is what I get in Device Manager...

    80, yes 80x "Base System Device" items in "other devices, 3x "Performance Counters" and 4x "System Interrupt Controller".

    It's the latest version of Windows 10, updated.
    BIOS 3404
    ME FW :

    Chipset - 10.1.18716.8265
    ME - 2113.15.0.2242

    It also seems that the WIFI device appears in Device Manager when it's switched off in the BIOS.

    Does anyone have any Ideas on how I can sort these issues out?

    Problem solved. It seems Microsoft have changed the way Windows Update works and there was a load of Optional Driver Updates that I hadn't noticed... I installed them all and all the Unknown Devices went away... strange!

    Not too bad. When the Apex was first released Windows didn't have anything for it and I was getting all the drivers from the Asus support site.
    I still check the Asus support first for new updates.
