    Does my Motherboard and CPU supports the latest chipset?


    Main Board: Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD7 (rev. 1.0), BIOS F6
    CPU : QuadCore Intel Core i7 920, 2833 MHz (21 x 135)
    OS : Windows Vista x64-bits

    I have 3 computers identical as above, I am going to update my BiOS TO F7, all I will install Windows 7 x64-bits, Windows 8.1 x64-bits and Windows 10 x64-bits

    Can i update my chipset to v10.1.1.42?

    If not, will work v9.2.0.1030 still under Win 10, Win 8 and Win 7?

    Windows (particularly 10) should download the motherboard driver for you from Windows Update.

    The X58 chipset isn't on the list of supported devices:

    so I'd guess that it wouldn't install.

    The X58 chipset is off support by Intel at this time. The latest drivers at Gigabyte or your board end at Windows 7. (I all else fails, you may be able to manually install them.) I hope the Microsoft provides all necessary drivers, as they do for some oldish systems.

I'm doing a clean install (actually a clean re-install) of Win10-Pro on an Asus P9X79-DLX / i7-3930K computer. If the Device Manager shows all the devices working properly is there any need or benefit in installing any motherboard chipset drivers...
