I want to upgrade to Windows 10, clean install, on a new SSD. Also upgrading to GeForce GTX1660Ti gpu.
Are their any drivers, bios updates or other items I might require for this MoBo, to help ensure a reasonably painless process?
I have found the procedure for installing W10 on a GPT partition, and that seems pretty straightforward.

Advice?

What do you have the board connected too? A TV, Speakers, or Headset?

Using the Graphics card it is using the HDMI or Display port. When you use the graphics card you have that connected to like a TV or Monitor that has speakers. That is when you using the Video card drivers.

What driver for the sound for the board you using? The are two drivers for the board. Make sure you are using the right one.

One thing you could try is let Windows install the driver and see what happens.

In all the computers I have built. Plus that is like well over a 100. I can't remember when was the last time I installed a sound driver. Since Windows 10 has come out I haven't install any drivers other then the video driver.

If everything you have tried and nothing helps you might have to contact support.

Motherboards with Intel processors / Sound problems GigaByte B760 Gaming X DDR 4
« Last post by OldNordic on April 13, 2024, 10:04:05 pm »
I just built a computer with GigaByte B760 Gaming X DDR 4 and windows 11. Use a Radeon graphic, and I got problems with the sound. The sound mutes +/- 1 second randomly. Only few seconds between it happens.  I uninstalled the Radeonsoftware, but the problem is still there. All software are up to date. What can this be?

I don't update drivers and the Bios unless I really have too. Video driver is like 6 months old. I'll let that go till I really have to update it. If I'm not having any problems I leave well enough alone.

Greetings,
Indeed, you are correct.  When flashing, you want to remove as many variables or points of failure as possible.  Back up first, ensure the system is connected to UPS, then flash from within the BIOS. 

As far as OS updates go.  I usually use what windows update offers.  There are some circumstances. such as audio drivers or video where you get additional configuration options, so in that case install the manufacturers drivers.
 
Good Luck!

Greetings,
BIOS updates are not required.  If the system is stable, consider staying where you are.  Run the support tool and windows updates, but you can hold off on the BIOS unless you discover a problem, or experience an issue that a newer BIOS addresses. 

BIOS updates should be performed in the BIOS.  This is the safest method.

Sorry, no notify. I have heard of that viewpoint before and in many ways subscribe to it.
I believe that the board is quite new anyway, so should be running a recent BIOS version out of the box.
It was more the various drivers, as they do have way more frequent updates generally

I'm 71 and I have been using. building and repairing computers for the early 80"s too. I learn many yrs ago:  "If it isn't broke don't fix it". I don't update nothing unless I'm having a problem. Been there, done that, and move on from it.

Hi Dmdilks.
Nice to see another senior gent in these forums. LOL
I cannot believe how far these PCs have come from the days of having to plan out IRQs (dip switches on the cards) and DMA channels! LOL In a sense, it's better now but I still miss the days of hard setting devices like in the past, this way, stuff stayed put. LOL
Agreed with the "If it ain't broke, don't fix it" I guess my hope when I see a new available bios is it will makes things better and faster, unfortunately, this is not always the case. Being into hi Res VR Sims, I need all the horsepower and speed I can muster. So back to F9 bios I went! :)
Take care and have a wonderful week.
