Gigabyte GA-Z170N-Gaming 5 Z170 - What drivers do I need?

Building a new computer today or tomorrow(depends when one part comes in) and I was looking to download all my drivers and misc programs before hand. But when I went to:

https://www.gigabyte.com/Motherboard/GA-Z170N-Gaming-5-rev-10#support-dl

I noticed so many drivers and there is very little for descriptions to guide me on what is necessary and what isn't. So far I have downloaded:

Realtek Audio
Bluetooth
Wifi
Lan
Thunderbolt
Chipset

There are a bunch of other drivers(some seem to be for a variety of purposes) but I've only ever gotten these 5 mostly.

If you click the link, go to the Utility section of drivers and let me know if any of the downloads ring a bell. I see one for motherboard lights so I'm guessing this stuff isn't necessary, but it'd be nice to know what I'm missing regardless.

  1. Drivers are for hardware, which you have only a single item listed. The first thing needed is determining what OS you are using.

    For Chipset:
    Intel INF installation
    Intel Management Engine Interface

    Yes, I only mention the single item of hardware I was requesting drivers for. I was wondering if anyone has had some experience with the massive amount of misc downloads on the Gigabyte website and found any of the extraneous drivers useful and or cool.
