    I notice that bootcamp 5.1 loads a lot of drivers on my mac pro 5,1 tower.

    I have a feeling a bunch of them are not even for the 5,1.

    For example, it loads:
    2x bluetooth
    Atheros communications
    4x broadcom Net drivers
    2x Cirrus Logic
    5x Intel Net drivers

    Does anybody know what drivers are really for the 5,1, and what ones are for other macs, but just loaded by default.

    You are right. BootCamp 5.1 loads some drivers you don´t need because you don´t have the hardware. This is not a problem, they just reside on your HDU/SSD then and will not be used by Windows.
