Question about Motherboard Drivers

I just bought GA-Z77-D3H mobo, gonna put it together with i3 2120 CPU and Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit OEM OS

http://www.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=4140&dl=1#dl

On the download driver setion, there are two drivers under Chipset (Intel Management Engine Interface and Intel INF installation), SATA RAID (Intel® Rapid Storage Technology and Intel SATA Preinstall driver, and USB 3.0 (Intel USB 3.0 Driver and Etron USB 3.0 Driver).

Is it necessary to install all of them?

I heard something about win 7 don't have to install Intel SATA Preinstall driver (For AHCI / RAID Mode)? If not, how to install it? F6?

Thanks

    For the best experience, i recommend that u probably update everything so u have no issues with anything or it could increase various things like performance and different management
    Thanks!
