My System Specs


If it's a driver and not an "app" I always install them. For years AMD has had some kind of "USB Filter" which I have absolutely no idea what it does, but I always install it anywise... :)

In most cases I'd think the motherboard / chipset manufacturer would know how to make their own hardware run best. The only recent issue of not wanting to use the native drivers I can recall was the use of Microsoft's AHCI driver on AMD chipsets in order to allow TRIM to work.
