Just picked up a brand new HyperX 3k 120 GB for a fresh install of windows 7
i have a P55 extreme 4 from ASRock,
Once I load the OS on the SSD, when do I go in and install the necessary drivers to take advantage of SATA III ??
I have to install the Marvell Drivers, but can i do this after the OS is installed or do i do it before?
When do i install the firmware updates for the SSD if there are any? Is it best to download all the necessary drivers, and files, onto a flash drive first then install from flash drive??

Also, do i need to do a BIOS update or anything? If so, again do i do this before OS installed or after?
Do i need to install Marvell MSU Utility? necessary at all??

PLEASE, help thank you so much for your help!
