Question about motherboard chipset drivers
 
I have an Asrock 939A790GMH motherboard
Northbridge: AMD 790GX
Southbridge: AMD SB750

For LAN driver I get the latest OEM drivers from Realtek. Or even ATI/nVidia GFX cards, it's always best to get latest drivers from respective OEM drivers instead of the card's brand like MSI, Asus, Gigabyte etc.
But how about motherboard chipset drivers?

Is installing AMD SB drivers instead of motherboard's manufacturer issued chipset drivers correct?

Should I...
Install the chipset drivers from the motherboard's manufacturer
Install the AMD SB drivers
Install both and but install the AMD SB drivers over it?

I install them from the motherboard manufacturers site, but use driver genius to update them

Latest package for your board:
amd_chipsets_8.86-vista-7

On asrock's site. Their amd chipset driver is version 8.63. The installer is based on catalyst and it's very outdated. It's a "all in one" driver with sb/nb driver, Usb filter, raid/ahci driver.

I don't see any over device drivers in the installer.

I already gave you a link to the latest set, did you not read my post?
