the chipset software i installed was the most recent one avaliable on intel site. It might be that since my chipset Z77 is old, i should have not installed the recent chipset?
Their Intel Driver Update Utility doesnt update to it.
i didnt install the mobo support site, because I see them outdated outdated, 10.1.1.8 instead of 10.1.1.42. yet the new recent one lists my chipset as supported in release notes but generally the intel site doesn't see the inf file as made for my chipset and its update software would say its already upt to date. Ia sk because im getting BSODs from directx files so wondering if its related.
