    Disabling Unnecessary Intel Services?

    I'm using a Core i5 3570K CPU and Gigabyte motherboard with an Intel 7 Series Chipset & Intel LAN chipset running Windows 8.1 Pro x64. I have a SSD system disk, two SATA hard drives and an eternal USB drive. I don't use RAID.

    My PC is running normally but I want to disable unneeded services. The following Intel services are running:

    • Intel Rapid Storage Technology
    • Intel Integrated Clock Controller
    • Intel ICCS Intel Capability Licensing Service Interface
    • Intel Capability Licensing Service TCP IP Interface
    • Intel PROSet Monitoring Service
    • Intel Dynamic Application Loader Host Interface Service
    • Intel Management & Security Application Local Management Service

    What do all these Intel services do, are all of these services really necessary and can I safely disable some of them? Please advise where I can find documentation which explains in outline what they all do.

    OK I'll leave them alone. I couldn't find a clear answer by Googling or consulting Intel's site.
