Searching around it looks like Live Update 5 is a bad choice when updating BIOS but what about drivers? I updated my BIOS using my usb through the bios flash tool but whenever i try the same method with drivers Live Update 5 tells me nothing is updated.

Should i just use Live Update 5 for the drivers? Is there a way to check if the drivers are really updated but Live Update 5 just cant see it?

Live Update is for driver updates only as it can't determine BIOS versions, nor can it update it since it's a Windows-based utility and BIOS update on your board doesn't run in Windows.

Conversely, BIOS update utility can't update Windows drivers.

Do not update either unless a particular BIOS or driver update fixes a specific problem you're experiencing.
Otherwise leave them alone.

Updating BIOS or driver just because it's out-of-date is not a wise policy.

I see...well everything on my computer worked right when i built it yesterday besides the internet. I used the Live Update 5 for the Killer Network Drivers and it worked perfectly.

Can i install all the Utilities from Live Update 5 instead of the drivers?
