    MOBO with TPM chip

    Hi all at Aria can you tell me whether you stock chips that have TMP chips on them please!

    Mines a P45 Platinum.

    but it seems most MSI boards have the headers:-

    and

    http://eu.msi.com/index.php?func=pro...=&prod_no=2144

    Which Aria stocks

    Although I am not sure where you will buy a TPM in the OK

    Could you give me the name of your mobo so I can price it up if you don't mind.

    Yeah I believe that some ASUS boards have headers for the chip, but the posts I read suggested that they weren't selling the module as a retail accessory, though that could be out of date.

    Quite a few motherboards do have support for a tpm module (I know moth my MSI boards do have Skt 775btw)

    MSI sell the module seperately...

    Yeah that was one of the ones I turned up. Based on the 'Workstation' branding I'd say they were aimed at CAD systems and such (ie very high spec business PCs), that seems to be where the term is used nowadays.

    There's a page here with a list of other Asus motherboards which seem to have TPM chips:

    That might help you turn up something a little less pricey.

    Can't you use bitlocker with a USB stick as a 'key' somehow instead of needing an onboard TPM chip?

    You can lock HDD's but you if you want to run back up while your away then they will not work as you need to unlock the drive. The actual C drive can't be locked as it needs a chip to lock the drive with and you can't lock that drive with a USB stick.

    Here is the Asus mobo I was talking about:

    Yeah bitlocker, I have seen one on a top end Asus mobo that cost just short of 200, but that is a bit out of my price range.

    Well, after a bit of research I can find very few systems or boards with TPM chips. IBM / Lenovo thinkpads, some apple hardware, a few netbooks. A small range of Gigabyte motherboards from a few years back, and a small range of ASUS motherboards from around the same time (2007/2008) - none of which we seem to stock.

    What do you need one for? Bitlocker or something?
