So here am I, plugging in my wireless headset dongle into my rear I/O, finding out one of my USB-ports died. It's an slightly old motherboard, and I'm looking for a motherboard equipped with a RGB header.

So I found the Asus ROG STRIX H370-F, to swap out my Asus PRIME Z270-P.

But I'm not sure if there are any drivers that need to be updated or downloaded for the H370-F to run, since both the Z270-P and the H370-F are Asus products.
I'm assuming the motherboard runs without any special drivers like AI SUITE (which I have installed).

they are for different cpu. are you upgrade that too?
do a fresh os install.
No they're not. I checked, and they both are LGA 1151... Sorry, maybe if I give the full name: Asus ROG STRIX H370-F GAMING motherboard socket 1151. Tho, it supports just these 3 RAM-speeds (as my reseller's site says): 2133, 2400 and 2666. But my RAM is only 1600MHz. Any problems with that as well?

Edit: RAM probs wont be a problem. My reseller states at the Z270-P: "Memory speed: 3866MHz"
