All of those are optional and not required.

The other things should be installed (especially the Chipset driver) but if your system is behaving and booting fine, skip the RAID driver, unless you use RAID


So rise up, all ye lost ones, as one, we'll claw the clouds

Redundant because of Realtec HDAD.

 

APP Manager - not needed unless you want to tweak a hect ton of stuff in one place instead of 3-5;

Command Center - not needed unless you want to use your Android phone to control RGB on the motherboard;

CPU-Z MSI GAMING - unless you plan on monitoring your CPU in any way possible (which can be done better with HWInfo64) AND you want MSI sking, not needed;

Gaming Lan Manager - not needed, it's QoS service, will screw up other connections like video buffering;

Live Update 6 - not needed unless you want all MSI software from this list to be updated in one click;

MSI Gaming APP - not needed, don't even install if there is software like Dragon Center or APP Manager;

MSI Smart Tool - not needed, there's a better analogue called Rufus;

Mystic Light 3 (Motherboard has RGB) - if you want to fine tune RGB, then it is required;

Nahimic 2 - not needed, you can do everything it does (except some FX that don't do any good to sound) in RAC;

Nahimic 3 - same as Nahimic 2, but 1UP!;

Realtek Audio Control - Required for Realtec HDAC, so it's needed;

Super Charger - doesn't work so do not install;

X Boost - not needed, since it doesn't do anything good.


Purify your Windows 10, don't give Microsoft anything that you don't want to share.
