Windows 10: Check for new drivers for Win10 on your motherboard site.
Is something like SlimDrivers a viable option?
If there are Windows 10 drivers for the motherboard(Intel INF, SATA, LAN, Audio) on the manufacturer's site, is it best to use those or let Windows Update install whatever drivers it has?
Install a free tool like Driver Booster to keep your drivers updated. Running on Windows 10, It does a great job and gives option to keep backup of the downloaded drivers as well. There are giveaway Keys on the net for using it as pro legally.

I thought that W10 was going to update drivers automatically for our hardware...
It most probably will but most of the time drivers are pretty bare, without control programs. HW manufacturers supply MS with drivers for their devices and MS has to check them and eventually certify them. All that may take time so getting drivers from it's manufacturer may get you newer ones.
Chasing newest drivers may not be a very best idea unless there is something of great importance in them. GPU manufacturers very often make changes to their drivers just to fix problems with some of the games etc.
Those programs for finding newest drivers are also known to make mistakes and get you a wrong driver and not neccesserly newest or best ones.
MS is getting pretty good at collecting drivers as of lately, so as I said before, unless something is obviously wrong and everything works as it should there's no actual reason to chase newer ones. It happened many times when older drivers were better than newest ones.
I can't install "realtek v7565"...
Now my audio sounds like it's coming from a box since my "Sound Effects" tab is missing. Windows won't update to this.
Mine doesn't have Win10 drivers, but 8.1 ones work fine so all fine!
Just did a clean install of Windows 10 Enterprise on my ASUS K75DE Laptop. AMD CCC was installed automatically on first boot up, switchable graphics working now without a hitch. The ASUS Smart Gesture installed automatically too, so I have my two finger scroll etc. Everything is working with the default drivers. Plugged in my external USB 3 monitor and display link installed automatically. 1 reboot latter and I have my dual monitors. I didn't have to install any drivers manually.
Msi had nothing for me and my msi z77a-g45 i had to reach out to realtek and intel for mine all works great
how can i check win10 to see if i have a geniue product key???
does win10 save it somewhere??
or do i need to have saved it before i installed win10??
I haven't had the new PC delivered yet, but am wondering if, as Vista drivers for gaming hardware tended to be OK in Win7, should they and/or Win7 drivers work in Win10?
Thinking of things like Saitek X52, Belkin Nostromo N52..
