I came here for with one question that 30 minutes of surfing did not yield a straight answer.

what does the "Intel management engine driver" do for an asrock Z77 extreme6 motherboard

90% of the time I will be using this new computer that i am downloading drivers for for gaming.

do I need it? do I want it? and mainly what does it do?

All help is greatly appreciated :)

Detailed Description


Installs the Intel® Management Engine (Intel® ME) version for Intel® Desktop Boards.

The Intel® ME software components that need to be installed depend on the system's specific hardware and firmware features. The installer detects the system's capabilities and installs the relevant drivers and applications.

Additional Notes

If the Intel® Management Engine (Intel® ME) driver has not been successfully installed, you may see an error on a "PCI Simple Communications Controller" in Device Manager.

Ok, what do I do if it doesn't install successfully on windows 7 64bit and how do I make sure it installs correctly?
