You installed only F6 drivers at time of Windows setup, right? So it is safe to install RST now, because driver is already present and loads at boot time. If not (i.e. using built-in Windows drivers), updating to Intel drivers usually is safe, but is recommended to make a full disk c: copy in order to restore if things go wrong.
