    Random install of Thermal Management Controller - i7 3820/X79 Chipset




      Randomly today Windows 7 installed a new device within System Devices called:


      Intel(R) C600/X79 series chipset Thermal Management Controller -1D24


      When I next rebooted my PC, this was no longer listed in System Devices and there were no 'unknown devices' listed.  Everything was running and has been since running normally.


      I am running a i7 3820 on an ASUS X79 Sabertooth, I have made no recent BIOS changes.  Other people are also reporting this:


      Question about device manager


      Has anyone got any ideas what is causing this?  Is this system device supposed to appear amongst the system devices for X79/i7 3820?  Can anyone confirm?
