Hello Staman,

We understand you would like to know which SATA AHCI controller to use in order to connect your Intel® SSD 535 Series. After checking your motherboard's specs, we can confirm the motherboard comes with the Intel® Z87 Express Chipset. Now, the SSD will use the SATA driver from the OS you will be installing and the Intel® controller.

 

For SATA drives you don't really need to install extra drivers, the ones from the OS will be more than enough.

You can check the specs of the motherboard from here: http://www.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=4489# sp http://www.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=4489# sp

If you have further questions, please let us know.

Regards,

I m very impressed that you don t recommend to use the Intel driver but the driver from OS (Win10PRO) that is created at 2006 !!! or Gigabytes driver

I was wondering if my Intel ssd was working better with an Intel driver but you answer question ...

Hi Staman,

 

 

Just to let you know, the driver from the OS is more than enough to make the SSD operable. You also can go ahead and install the https://downloadcenter.intel.com/downloads/eula/25165/Intel-Rapid-Storage-Technology-Intel-RST-RAID-... Intel® Rapid Storage, however, this driver is not required and it won't make the SSD perform better, it is different if you had one of our NVMe* drives which definitely increases performance.
