Intel(R) 7 Series/C216 Chipset Family


I used the intel support tool, but never got the newest updates for these drivers.  The intel support tool, doesn't look at these drivers any more. 

Now I have drivers.  

The newest drivers are   

My processor:

Processor Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-3570K CPU @ 3.40GHz, 3801 Mhz, 4 Core(s), 4 Logical Processor(s)

I understand it is no longer support from INTEL.


1. Where are the  drivers?

2.  Were there any replacement drivers for my processor that I should be using?

3.  What are my chances of being hacked through the old drivers?

4. Should I stay with the drivers I have?

Hello PhoenixFire,

Thank you for posting on the Intel® communities.   


I need to inform you that due to this product being discontinued, Intel Customer Service no longer supports inquiries for it, but perhaps fellow community members have the knowledge to jump in and help.  

You may also find the Discontinued Products website helpful to address your concern.   


Please keep in mind that this thread will no longer be monitored by Intel.
