For Monitor Driver just go to the Device Manager then click on update Driver and Window 10 will download and install Driver Automatically, incase if this don't work try the following method:
Remove Unused Devices:>
1. Open a Command Prompt by going to Start>Run and typing "cmd" (without quotes). Once the Command Prompt is open, type the following lines, pressing return after each:
2. In the Device Manager window that opens, go to the View menu and select 'Show Hidden Devices' - this is very important if you want to see the unused devices. Now expand each of your devices and look through all the sub-components listed. You will see that some of the devices are shown in a lighter grey color.
3. For the purposes of this guide, what we need to look for are entries under the Monitor and Display Adapter device categories. Under Monitor there should be at least one darker monitor entry for each monitor on your system. If there are any greyed out entries, you can remove them by right-clicking on the entry and selecting 'Uninstall'. Do this for all greyed out entries under the Monitor device. Restart the Computer.

This Memory start giving mr an error with 4-4-4-12-2T timing so roll back to default 5-5-5-15-2T timing..according to Corsair support it does not do Cas 4
well not a big deal in real time performance...
