Hey all

i recently bought a nice 955 Phenom 2 setup with an M4A87TD/USB3 Motherboard, and when installed the "AMD Chipset" driver of the CD,

it installed the catalyst ATi install manager/control center and installed a northbridge filter but nothing else, is this normal? or am i doing something wrong

Yes, it's normal. It installs ATi SMBus and USB filter depending on the configuration. I extracted these drivers from the installation and install them manually as 100MB setup just to install these tiny drivers is so unnecessary. I don't know why they don't just offer them as a separate download, same as SATARAID driver. AMD are you listening? 100MB download just to install these 1 or 2 tiny drivers? Not all users use AMD graphic cards. Be good chaps and change that, please, and offer us all the drivers as a separate download.

****** Cheers! ******
