    Advantage of Asus drivers over Windows 10 drivers

    Are there any huge advantages in installing the Asus drivers ( Strix X99) instead of letting Windows 10 do the stuff ?
    I noticed Windows 10 installed everything but one( intel turbo boost max technology 3.0). Dont Asus supply Microsoft with the drivers ?

    Both driver sets should work fine. If you have issues, update with the driver you currently don't have installed.

    Personally, I would choose the Asus MB driver specified to the Win10 version above the MS Win10 version.
    That would be my first resort if I didn't feel like experimenting between the two driver sets.
    I always like the Asus drivers first for all my MB's instead of the native Win10 drivers

    MS Win10 drivers will look at general stability across many MB's.
    Asus MB Drivers will look at up-to-date stability & optimization geared toward your specific MB version.
