Hi, I recently purchased this mobo as well as the rest of my built and I am waiting for it to arrive. This is my first time building a pc so I don't know what drivers I need.

ASRock H77M Drivers These are the list of drivers I found on the site. Could someone point out which drivers I actually need.

This is the rest of my build in case you need to know what it is. Thanks!

Hi. The following drivers are recommended at the very least. There are newer versions as noted below but they're not yet available from ASRock. I have installed the newer versions without any problem but you may (want to) wait until ASRock releases them.

Realtek HD Audio Driver (newer version available from Realtek)
Realtek LAN Driver (newer version available from Realtek)
Intel INF Driver
Intel USB 3.0 Driver (newer version available from Intel)

I don't know what the Intel Management Engine Driver does so I haven't had it install in my system. Maybe someone else can shed light on this subject. Since you have a dedicated graphics card, you'll need the latest Catalyst driver from AMD. The rest of the drivers and utilities should be installed as needed but I personally didn't see the need for them for myself except for maybe the XFast USB Utility. You can disable the Intel Rapid Start Technology and Intel Smart Connect Technology features in the bios if you don't need them and don't forget to go through and customize the rest of the bios features to best suit your needs. Good luck on your new build.

If it isn't set to 1600 how can I change it?

You can change the frequency in the bios under the OC Tweaker tab.
