    Updating Intel Dynamic Platform & Thermal Framework Drive

    Jimmy_Bionic

      Hi there

       

       

      There've been some overheating problems recently on my new ASUS notebook (X555LD series on Windows 8.1 64-bit) and ASUS Tech support have advised me to update my BIOS to the latest version.

       

       

      I did so, but also I investigated their support page with lots of downloads http://www.asus.com/ru/Notebooks/X555LD/HelpDesk_download/

      and found there was an update for Intel Dynamic Platform & Thermal Framework Driver (V7.1.0.2105 from 2013/12/26)

       

       

      On the other hand, there is a newer update of Intel Dynamic Platform & Thermal Framework Driver, which I have found on Dells' support website

      http://www.dell.com/support/home/us/en/19/Drivers/DriversDetails?driverId=66P3R

      - Version 8.0.10002.14, A00, 29 Jul 2015

       

      I have also downloaded and installed Intel Driver Update Utility from Intel website, and it couldn't find any new updates to install

       

      Is it advisable that I download and apply a new update from Dell's site?

       

       

      Thanks

          Hello Jimmy_Bionic:

           

          Thank you for contacting the Intel Communities.

           

          The recommendation for driver downloads and OEM devices would be to download the drivers directly from the manufacturer's website.

           

          The reason behind this would be that the different drivers created by the OEM or manufacturer, are indeed tested with their systems and they add the proper configuration needed to work for the device correctly.

           

          Regards,

          Esteban C
