ASUS ROG Maximus Hero XII - what software/drivers to install after build?

I am on the ASUS website for my motherboard, and I am not sure exactly what I need to download and install. I already installed the most obvious ones like the LAN drivers, wifi drivers, Intel Rapid Storage, Intel Chipset Software Utility, Intel Chipset Drivers, Bluetooth Driver. However I'm unsure about the following and wonder if they are required. Under device manager, I still have exclamation marks for 2 items. I heard that the Intel MEI will take care of the PCI Simple Communications Controller, but what about the Unknown USB Device?

  1. Armoury Crate
  2. Intel_MEI_V1952.14.0.1470_WIN10_64-bit
  3. Realtek_Audio_Driver_SS3_DTS_V6.0.8899.1_WIN10_64-bit
  4. ASUS_AI_Suite_3_V3.00.60_Install_Program_WIN10_64-bit

The unknown PCI Simple Communication Controller is most likely Intel Management Engine Interface, IMEI.


The USB is a bit tricky, but I highly suspect it is Bluetooth.


Anyway, you can check the device ID and search the Internet for the correct description. Right click on the item in question in your device manager and select properties, the click on the details tab, then at the Property drop down menu, select Hardware IDs.





You should be able to see the Hardware ID at the box. Use web browser to search for the ID, and you might be able to learn what that device actually is.



For example, at the result, search for PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_0416. You may get information if the device is commonly known.



Happy hunting.

I apologies if my comments or post offends you in any way, or if my rage got a little too far. I'll try my best to make my post as non-offensive as much as possible.

I figured it out. I had to turn off fast boot in Windows 10 and it fixed it. Somehow Windows was booting up way too fast and it didn't give enough time for my USB hub to initialize.
