    Hi there. I have a rMBP 15" late 2012 model. I installed Win7 x64 at the end of 2012. I periodically check to see if Apple has released any new drivers through the Apple software update utility, but the only thing it ever shows is Quicktime and iTunes downloads. Is there something else I should be doing to check for updates on this? I noticed there are more recent versions of the Boot Camp Support Software, but I think those are for fresh installs of Windows, am I right?

    The only piece of hardware that really benefits from driver updates is the GPU, and those you can download directly from NVIDIA.

    So Apple has never updated their chipset drivers or terrible thermostat controls? That's a shame, because those could definitely benefit from an update... I guess I'll just stick with Lubbo's Fan Control so this thing doesn't catch on fire.
