  1. I updated and saw no change at all. But new is better.
    Had to do the B-450 box each driver separately otherwise it popped an error when done all at once.

  2. Learning some hard lessons with updates, las windows update screwed with the master boot record, so fun.
    The updates for my scanner finally broke the software, had to reinstall.
    No, i dont touch chipset or mobo stuff unless strictly necessary.
