Even on AMD site they recommend to not use their AHCI driver but if it helps anyone...
I strongly discourage anyone to use legacy amd AHCI drivers on windows 10 or above. They lack TRIM support and I've seen cases of BSODs after installing the driver.
Same for old nforce, asmedia, jmicron and marvell controllers. Just keep the stock msahci drivers or you might lose TRIM support. If you are using Windows 7 or lower, try to not use the generic ahci driver.
Regarding the intel drivers, I don't recommend any of the ones that you've posted
For ICH7, ICH9 and ICH10 use 184.108.40.2066
For ICH8 use 10.5.0.1015
For ICH9R use 10.5.0.1027
For the 1st 2nd and 3rd gen intel core cpus/chipsets, use 220.127.116.110
For X79 or 3rd gen desktop intel cpu use 18.104.22.1688
For 4th and 5th gen use 22.214.171.1246
For 6th and 7th gen use 126.96.36.1990
Newer hardware: use the latest available driver
Note: stock MSAHCI drivers work just fine. This might give you a small performance boost if you use an SSD (mostly noticeable on benchmarks)
For more info, check win-raid forums. You'll find there download links and performance benchmarks for various systems
Strange but true: the MS AHCI drivers can be better and stabler.
