More about asus p8z77 bloatware download
  1. From personal experience the Network Icontrol application caused me allot of headache it completely tanked my upload and download speed webpages loaded really slow took me some time but I finally figured out that it was that program so don't install it or if you do make sure to disable it. The rest of the applications is up to you based on what they are if you are ever going to use them or not.
  2. Don't use I control. All of those that you listed are actual features on the motherboard...
  3. Thanks much, all. I guess I'll have to ask Asus if there's any "extras" besides what they've listed here.
