Since i’ve switched to fanless GPU from Nvidia. I begin to monitor Windows 7 driver related news. So, here is a link to the latest to date Windows 7 driver .

For some time I’ve owned Asus Essense STX II sound-card with cool hardware internals, but sh#t-like drivers. Very common situation for modern reality. Except the fact that card is not so modern at all. Asus dropped driver support for Windows 7 @ 2015. How cool is that? After some web searching I’ve stumbled upon Maxedtech drivers . The overall quality is better, some bugs are fixed, some appeared, but even at this point was not satisfied with system stability.
