    TPM Module for Gigabyte Motherboard


    My 2012 Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UD5H motherboard has a 20 pin TPM slot as shown below. Gigabyte advise the slot is for a v1.0 TPM module.

    It's unclear whether I need a bespoke Gigabyte TPM module or whether any 20 pin v1.0 TPM will work. I don't plan to use Bitlocker. In that case, what extra system security does the TPM provide? Will there be a problem accessing my data if there s ever a problem with the TPM module?

    Are you doing this for Windows 11?


    If so...

    Partly for W11, partly since I like fiddling with PCs and partly in the vain hope of increased security.

    I understand completely. W11 wants TPM 2.0, if you can find one of them.

    My 2012 board is TPM 1.0. That means a work around or PC upgrade I was considering anyway.

    Just reading all the posts about W11 and TPM 2.0... I doubt the TPM 2.0 requirement will make it to the final build of W11.
    There seem to be far too many systems without TPM 2.0 capability, even new systems.

    If MS follows their usual... "we MUST have W11 on EVERY machine...", they will probably have to relax that TPM 2.0 requirement.

    Did your board recognisei that TPM?


    I have the same mboard (2nd PC), and bought the similar Foxconn TPM, v1.2. Fits after cutting off the key, but not recognised in bios. Perhaps the 1.0/1.2 difference is the reason?

    As that motherboard won't officially support Windows 11, at the very least because it can't take a Gen8 CPU (or Gen 7, if MS relaxes the requirement that much), maybe you should just play with 11 without a TPM. (MS states that 11 won't be installable on a system that fails to meet all hardware security requirements.)

    I can't advise you on how to do that from personal experience. but the Windows 11 forum can probably supply all that you need.

    I was able to clean install 22000.51 using an ISO from uupdump.net on a system that meets all of the announced requirements but that didn't have Secure Boot turned on. I don't know if missing any of the other requirements would cause the installation to fail.

    I believe that PCs sold with Windows 10 had to meet all of the Windows 11 hardware security requirements, except for the CPU generation. Your Z77 motherboard pre-dates that.

    I wonder whether MS will relax the requirements before 11 becomes generally available? Current security isn't good enough?
