    Confused about drivers. Which are best for my particular build?

    Hey guys,
    It's quite a mess this driver thing for the uninitiated in tech things too much. Also the lack of proper changelogs and the fact if I need a particular driver or not is kind of crazy. Here's my build:
    3930k, overclocked, 4,6
    Rampage IV Extreme (1101)
    Windows 7 x64 Ultimate
    OCZ Vertex 4 128/256g two separate SSDs not in RAID.
    WD Caviar Black on SATA 3.
    If you need any more info please let me know. Thing I'll ask is, which chipset, internet, inf (if it's not already bundled with chipset), and RST (or RSTe), and Management Engine Interface drivers(if I need them) I should be using optimally? There is ASUS' support site and there's also Intel's driver section and Intel's section seems to be more up to date but the fact that it isn't showing up on ASUS' site is kind of confusing the hell out of me. If you can also provide the links to which ones I will need I'll be extremely grateful. Also, how can I update the intel drivers? When I try to install a supposedly new version, installer doesn't do anything and shows me the finished screen.

    I keep an updated folder on my PC of the Rampage IV Extreme drivers...

    I have compressed this folder and uploaded it to Google Docs...

    You can download it here:
    https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B5AL...it?usp=sharing

    it's a RAR file.. so use WinRAR to decompress it.

    All of the RIVE drivers for windows 7/8 64-bit are there.. EXCEPT for the Bluetooth driver.. (because I don't use the Bluetooth)

    Here is the link for the latest Bluetooth driver:
    http://station-drivers.com/download/...ivers.com).exe

    To answer your question about updating chipset...
    1) Decompress RAR file above
    2) Go into CHIPSET folder
    3) Open "Intel Chipset (9.4.0.1027) NEWEST" folder
    4) Hold down SHIFT + RIGHT MOUSE CLICK in that folder and select "OPEN COMMAND WINDOW HERE". That will open up a command prompt in that folder
    5) In the command prompt type "SETUP.EXE -OVERALL" and hit ENTER

    This will install the latest chipset drivers.

    I hope my instructions have been clear! Welcome to ROG forums!

    Hi BOLTS4BREKFAST,

    First of all thanks for your work gathers the most recent drivers for RIVE.
    I wanted to ask for info on your way to install the Intel Cipset because I do not understand why. Why advice to use the procedure ...instead of the simple setup inside the new folder? Is there a particular reason?

    "2)Go into CHIPSET folder
    3) Open "Intel Chipset (9.4.0.1027) NEWEST" folder
    4) Hold down SHIFT + RIGHT MOUSE CLICK in that folder and select "OPEN COMMAND WINDOW HERE". That will open up a command prompt in that folder
    5) In the command prompt type "SETUP.EXE -OVERALL" and hit ENTER..."

    Finally a question I meant to get you at the first opportunity, since I saw your name on the scoreboard-Legue of RealBench, close to mine (731 for you, 730 for me): I have always surprised at the so small difference that exists between my hardware that significantly below your own, apart the use of the same type of memories Corsair.
    It seems impossible that a 3960X CPU @ 4700, liquid cooled, a tree-SLI EVGA GTX 780, and a Raid0 of very fast Samsung 840, are able to obtain "ONLY one point more" than my poor 3930K @ 4700 air cooled, a single old HD6970 video card, and a Raid 0 of miserable Vertex4, .... there is certainly something wrong on tests of RealBench, or about your setup?
    What do you think? Do you have any other explanation?



    greetings

    RealBench is not really affected by GPU or SSD differences. It mainly wants faster CPU clocks and faster RAM frequencies and/or tighter timings. If you are both running similar frequencies for CPU and RAM without really tweaking the OS or timings the scores will be similar.

    BOLTS! very nice resource to post up +1

    Hi Arne,

    Just this may be the real explanation, if the test not does not act as a variable speed of writing and reading Mem-hdd or the GPU's processor ... so if our CPU clock are both @ 4700, certainly earned my clock memory to 2180, while the other was probably a stock-speed of 2133.
    If so, then 50 Mhz more of my memory speed have produced ... one point less?

    Yes quite possibly, especially if timings are different and making you pretty equal. And maybe one of you was running slightly more in the background etc.

    That is why it is called Realbench...because in the real world any modern SSD will perform pretty much like any other. Performance gains are really CPU and RAM frequency increases (and tight RAM timings). Second and third timings count...

    The next version of RealBench will have GPU test etc.

    Hi Arne,

    Very clear Arne, but What I did not understand what you mean by "(Second and third timings count ...)" if for second mean value of the second timing or ... SECONDARY timings.
    Our memories are similar but not identical: you use platinul 2133, I use D.GT 2133.
    I do not remember to whom and when, but in a tread you said that you use your DDR with these times:

    for your 2133 :9-11-10-30-2t / 7-183-18-9-27-9-8 / 0-2-3-5-5-3-1-1-5-0
    for your 2400 9 - 9 - 9-24-1t / 5-107-10-5-20-5-7 / 0-2-3-3-2-2-1-1-2-0

    at 1.5v

    for my 2200 :9-11-10-27-1t / 4 - 97-9 -4-20-4-8 / 0-0-0-0-3-3-1-1-3-0
    for my 2400: I could never run @ 2400 ...!

    at 1.55v
    I have a Mem.bandwidth of 55.80 by Sisoft sandra and dram score of 46766 by MemTweak
    You see these timing something wrong?

    Thanks Arne.

    Sorry sandro c yes I meant secondary...tertiary...timings.

    I got 2400+ to run 9-11-11-24-1T nearer/4-96-9-4-16-4-8/0-0-0-0-3-3-1-1-3-0 in the end....at 1.71v

    Nothing wrong with those timings at all...at least not to my untrained eye...look very good...very similar to my own...so kits not so different :-)
