    ROG STRIX Z590-F GAMING WIFI / Which Drivers do i need?

    Hello everybody,

    i have a new ROG STRIX Z590-F GAMING WIFI Mainboard, and i realy have big problems to find the newest/best drivers for it.

    I checked the Asus-Download-Page here: https://rog.asus.com/de/motherboards...pdesk_download
    These drivers seems to be very old - so i tried to find the newest ones, but i am to stupied...:-(

    I found the driver-threads in this forum, but - even with the driver-threads here, i have no idear which are the right drivers...
    In the driver-threads, there a more then one driver with the same version and i dont know what driver a need...
    And i addition to that, i find drivers here in the forum, which are not listed on the asus-download-page (Intel VMD Driver for example).

    I know this is a bit work, but can anybody please help me?!?

    I need a list (with links) of all drivers i need for my ROG STRIX Z590-F GAMING WIFI.
    I dont want to use the old ones from the Asus-Download-Page...

    I believe this drivers are:
    Audio
    Bluetooth
    LAN
    SATA
    VGA
    WiFi
    Chipset
    Intel MEI
    Intel GNA Scoring Accelerator (no idear what this is)
    Intel SeriallO (no idear what this is)
    Intel VMD (only found here in the forum, not on the download-page)

    I will install the Mainboard today, first i will update to the latest bios.
    Then i will update the ALC4080/ALC4082 audio Firmware
    Then i will update the Intel ME (MEUpdateTool)

    Can anybody please help me with the list of the drivers i need (and links for them)?

    Thank you so much!

    Processor is a Intel i9-10850K

    Hi,

    You need these firmware/drivers for your ASUS ROG Strix Z590-F Gaming WiFi motherboard :

    [FIRMWARE] Intel ME (Z590)

    [DRIVERS] Intel Chipset/MEI/SATA (1xx/2xx/3xx/4xx/5xx)

    - Intel Chipset Drivers

    - Intel MEI Drivers (Drivers Only)

    - Intel SATA AHCI-RAID Drivers (Drivers Only) :
    Drivers - 4xx/5xx

    [DRIVERS] Intel Serial IO/Thunderbolt (3xx/4xx/5xx)

    - Intel Serial IO Drivers (Drivers Only) :
    Drivers - 5xx

    [DRIVERS] Intel Ethernet/WiFi/Bluetooth

    - Intel Ethernet Drivers (Drivers Only) :
    Drivers - I22x-V (2.5GbE)

    - Intel WiFi Drivers (Drivers Only) :
    Drivers - 9xxx/AX2xx

    - Intel Bluetooth Drivers (Drivers Only) :
    Drivers - 9xxx/AX2xx

    [DRIVERS] Realtek USB Audio (MB | Intel 5xx & AMD 5xx/TRX40)

    You have an ASUS ROG SS3|DTS Sound Unbound motherboard with ALC408x codec, so :

    You need Realtek USB Audio Drivers (UAD - ASUS ROG SS3-DTS MB) Gen2 from the first post of the thread.

    Follow scrupulously your CLEANUP process then your INSTALL process, for the next drivers packages that I would release, you will can directly follow your UPDATE process.

    Thank you VERY MUCH!

    Some questions:
    1. Do i need the Intel VMD Drivers (Drivers Only)?
    2. Do i need the Intel GNA Scoring Accelerator Driver from the Asus-Download-Page?
    3. Do i need the Intel Rapid Storage Technologie Driver (Intel RST) or is the Intel SATA AHCI-RAID Drivers (Drivers Only) enough/the same?
    4. Do i need a VGA-Driver (my i9-10850K has a integrated GPU)?

    Thanks again!

    1) No, Intel VMD drivers are only for the future motherboards with Intel 6xx series chipsets wich will no longer use Intel SATA AHCI-RAID drivers.
    2) Only if you have enabled it on your bios (disabled by default).
    3) Intel RST = Intel SATA AHCI-RAID : You need AHCI drivers if you use SATA AHCI HDDs/SSHDs/SDDs (or RAID drivers if you use SATA RAID mode).
    4) Only if you don't use a dedicated GPU.

    Sorry, i still dont understand Answer 3 (SORRY!).

    I have a nvme-ssd (512GB) and 2 sata-ssds (1TB & 2 TB).
    I dont have a raid installed...

    So i dont need RST, i need the Sata AHCI-Drivers? Or both (RST & AHCI)?

    You only need Intel SATA AHCI drivers.
