The new Intel RST(e) drivers of the v12 series are mainly designed for the upcoming Intel 8-Series Chipsets and do not support any Intel ICH7/8/9/10 SATA Controller.
Which is the chipset of your system? Lower than 5-Series cannot use the original Intel RST(e) drivers v12.x.x.xxxx, because the needed HardwareIDs are missing within the INF files.

That clears it up. So the most up to date RST software for my machine is already installed and there is probably no point in looking for further updates unless for some reason there is an update pertaining to my chipset. Correct?
That is absolutely correct.
I have the same MB (Asus P5P43TD-PRO with ICH10R) and now (December 2014) I'm using v126.96.36.1990 driver for RST under Windows 7 x64. It seems that the last supported version for ICH10R is not v188.8.131.523. Or I'm wrong?
I want to extend a little bit. From what I understand, on this topic was discussed about the RST driver under Windows OS. But what about the "RST option ROM" under BIOS? I want to create a RAID 1 with two 3 Tb HDDs but from what I read on internet I need to upgrade the "RST option ROM" to a specific version in order that my system to see HDDs bigger than 2 Gb (Intel Matrix RAID - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia):
Standard on Intel Z68-based motherboards.
My current version for "RST option ROM" under BIOS is v184.108.40.2067. Do I need to update to a greater version in order that the 3 Tb HDDs to be seen under BIOS?
On Wiki I see that the last version for ICH10R is v11.7.0.
