Windows 10: Are MB Makers Not Fully Supporting 7x Series Boards (Ivy Bridge)?

    Are MB Makers Not Fully Supporting 7-Series Motherboards (Ivy Bridge)?

    Is there just a delay in updating drivers for 7-series boards or are manufacturers not going to fully support Ivy Bridge for Windows 10? I checked Asus and MSI websites and the 8x and 9x series boards have all the drivers updated for Windows 10, but not the 7x chipset boards.

    I have two B75 chipset (Ivy Bridge) custom built desktops currently running Windows 7. I'm hesitant to upgrade to Windows 10 because the motherboard manufactures are not providing ALL the updated drivers.

    Available drivers posted on manufacturer websites for 7x chipset MB (sporadic at best):
    Asus P8B75-M/CSM
    - Intel Chipset (but no IMEI driver)
    - On-Board Lan (Realtek)

    MSI B75MA-E33
    - On-Board Audio (Realtek)
    - On-Board Lan (Realtek)

    In the meantime, I'm curious what others experiences have been with upgrading their Ivy Bridge systems to Windows 10 without all the proper motherboard drivers.

    Are the default windows drivers sufficient?
    *SATA/AHCI - Any SSD/HDD issues?
    *IMEI - Does the system still support sleep states?
    *VIA Audio - I know VIA is dragging their feet on providing updated drivers.
