TPM Compatibility

I want to install a Trusted Platform Module (TPM) on a computer with an Intel DH61CR motherboard and an Intel I5 processor. Can someone tell me what TPM will work in this computer? I don't even know if I need a TPM 1.2 or a TPM 2.0

Though it would typically be a TPM 1.2, you can really use any module that meets the pinout of the 20-pin connector on the board. The layout is as follows:

It's been a long time since I was in discussions regarding these TPM modules. I vaguely remember there being a compatible TPM modules from Asus. I found two that might fit the bill:

Asus: https://www.ebay.com/i/324402496299.

Gigabyte: https://www.officedepot.com/a/products/6750311/Gigabyte-TPM-Module/.

Now, I have to say that I can't be 100% sure. The modules have the right number of pins and the keying connector is in the right place, but that's all I can glean. These pages do not detail the pinouts of these modules.

Still, I hope this helps,

Thanks for the info. I ended up buying a new computer. I contacted Gigabyte and they said it wasn't made for my computer. In doing research about the Asus TPM I found that originally they would have come with CD which had programming on, but this one didn't come with programming. Maybe someone with some skills that I don't have could make either of these work, but it's beyond my ability.
