WIndows 8.1 driver didn't seem to function. Need drivers from the Intel website. https://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_Desc.aspx?DwnldID=19880
Other Thoughts: I was never able to find Firmware update, but it wasn't necessary.
Win8.1 installed a driver that didn't seem to do anything.
Once I installed the USB drivers from the Intel website, (Renesas USB 3.0) it started complaining about power issues. They eventually stopped, but nothing was being recognized. I touched the power cable and it came to life. The power connector on the card is very loose. I might have to tape it or something.
Pros: It is modular. It is Bronze level. Most importantly it is so quiet. I had to check it was on when I was setting it up. Very Pleasant suprise.
Cons: none really. It doesn't have a 4 pin mother board connector, but that is rare today.
Other Thoughts: Very Happy with this purchase. Hope it last.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: The card is passively cooled. Super easy install, windows 8 does it for you.
HDMI sound is good.
Cons: Terrible color reproduction. After two days of tweaking I gave up on the hdmi connection and connected it to the VGA. It worked better but the colors are very harsh. Considering returning it.
HDMI was terrible for windows. The text was very blurry.
Other Thoughts: I'm considering weather it's worth going through the $20 rebateREAD FULL REVIEW
