    Well, that's sad. I was hoping that following all that work, you would report that you had the pleasure of taking the PC case to the top of a tall building, and dropping the thing to the ground to witness the cloud of dust it created!

    So it appears that it will have to stick around a little longer.

    You can more or less guarantee that checking the Microsoft driver update database will report that the best driver is already installed. It may not be the best, and the most recent driver may not work on all hardware it should.

    The Motherboard/OEM device driver support site is often the best place to start. If you get the correct driver, even an old version, it is possible that in future updates Microsoft can find a better version of it.
    For instance, Realtek HD audio drivers, are invariably not installed, with Microsoft HD Audio drivers installed instead. Once the change to the OEM driver has been made,it updates correctly... until the next clean install.

    I'll add my 2 cents worth just as a confirmation, I have a Gigabyte board from 2009, GA-MA78GM-US2H, and 2010, GA-770T-USB3, both running Win10 just fine. The 2009 uses DDR2 RAM while the 2010 uses DDR3RAM so the OP's board is not too old. Both boards do run AMD AM3 CPUs, don't know if that makes a difference in reliability or usability but I've not had many problems with them, one Upgraded from Win7 w/SP1 and the other from Win8.1.

    Thanks everybody it's been it's been at least 2 days without any BSOD or Freeze. So I am going to uncheck "Defer Upgrades", and see what happens. Right now I'm on Version 1511 Build 10586.589 so I've got a ways to go to catch up.
    Hopefully there will be some resolution to the Version 1607 build 14393.222 before I get there.

    Going to mark post as solved
