    I've been running 10.1.2.9 drivers since 22 hours ago and haven't had any problems. Besides, didn't someone say that Intel Chipset Drivers are really INF files and not actual driver binaries so it doesn't come with binaries to cause a BSOD.
    Think that was here. Mine is running fine with the 10.1.2.8 so for now i will stick with this until Gigabyte shows different for me.
    I know what you mean wanting newest of any driver for Windows 10, don't think a month or so older driver is going to improve your system. I would as you might already know, be careful with drivers as you can get BSOD or need to reinstall OS. Make restore points or system images, as sometimes restore points do not help. Good luck !

    Good point, I figured since Intel chipset drivers are nothing more than INF files, it shouldn't cause the BSOD.

    My knowledge not sure with inf stuff, may want to ask around. If digitally signed most likely safe.

    I thought if it was WHQL, it would usually be safe since not all versions of drivers are WHQL.

    Windows warns you when it is not, digitally signed.

    I have been running 10.1.1.8 on my Asus laptop but Fernando told me updating to the latest with this particular driver type is totally unnecessary and will not improve performance.

    Oh well, I needed to reboot anyways so it was worth a shot. What I'm more interested in is does Intel Turbo Boost Technology Monitor really do anything and will the system still change speeds without it as in Windows 7, it used to crash after eating up close to a gig of memory but it runs fine in Win10 and I haven't seen a newer version than the 2.6 I'm running.

    Believe it just monitors this as it is already incorporated into the chipset you have. Intel says it's an end of life product. I had this with my ASUS board, to me became just another startup item.

    I'm actually surprised it works better under Win10 than Win7 though. It's a major resource hog from what I can tell since it starts at only megabytes when first launch and then it consumes a gig of ram. Not sure if the system will still switch between the regular speed and the boosted speed without it.

    Some things i read it should increase without it. Had something similar with my board now an app it had overclocking features too. Mine goes past 3.30GHZ without it. 1 GB kind of big for startup item, plus it would have to run all the time if believe you need it to boost it.
