    Lightbulb Maximus V Formula: Installing Windows 10

    Hello Guys,

    I currently have my Maximus V Formula overclocked to 4.3 on Windows 7 Ultimate. But now i'm going to upgrade to Windows 10 Pro. Before i do a clean install of Windows 10 what are some necessary steps to take to avoid problems or for optimal installation?

    For example:
    1. Do I or should I unclock the system for the installation of windows?
    2. I think my BIOS is about 2 years old, BIOS 1604, should I install the latest BIOS just because I'm installing new OS?
    3. I only saw like two Beta Drivers under chipset, one for the Intel Management Engine Interface and the other for Intel Chipset (also for audio and video), would it be a good decision to install the "Beta Drivers" of the chipset?

    Any other suggestions before doing the clean install of Windows 10 pro?

    All help very much appreciated!
