Putting the shiny new board into that self modded chassis just won't make this board stand up and give you world dominating performance. You have to do a couple of things to make that happen. First is to install the operating system then the drivers (instruction set that tells the hardware how to do its work the fastest and most efficient way possible). To start, of course, you will need to insert the supplied driver disc into the optical drive of your choice and let the autorun feature start the operation or start it manually.

Once the installation GUI pops up you have several options to chose from. Install the motherboard drivers, install the audio drivers, install the SATA controller drivers, make a RAID installation disk, install Adobe Reader and View the CD manual. I started off installing the motherboard drivers. Once installed then you can follow that up with all of the available items you need for your build.
















Additional items that can be checked out include links to the EVGA website to register your board, visit the gaming page, view the EVGA forum moderators' rigs to give you some buildup ideas.
