    I'm with JC713 on this one.

    The SM Bus Controller is usually used to control slow speed devices and I've seen a number of mobos where it's just not used/needed. If you downloaded the chipset drivers from ASUS, plus the Intel Management engine you should be fine.

    I did try updating it in the device manager but said it couldn't find any. My headphones weren't working but I rebooted the computer and now they are.

    Windows probably installed the driver once you restarted.
