    If you are referring to Intel Rapid Storage Drivers, the answer is no you do not need them unless you are running Raid. They are Intel's Raid drivers but also contain the Intel AHCI driver. Will you get better performance with AHCI? Many/most people believe you do. They can, in some cases cause problems. I have always used them and have never had problems, but others do.

    If your drives work as they are, avoid installing it. I once installed it in a computer and had problems. I used System Restore to fix them.
