TPM for Intel DH61WW desktop board

Hi all,

 

I've an Intel DH61WW desktop board. I saw that it has a TPM header slot. I would like to know if Intel makes the TPM chip and if so, where can I buy it from (I've searched every nook and corner of Amazon and couldn't find it). Will it work if I use ASUS TPM chip on my Intel DH61WW desktop board?

 

Thanks,

No, Intel never made a TPM module that could be plugged into these Desktop Boards. Most people used the 20-pin TPM 1.2 module from Asus, but I have heard that there's a TPM 2.0 module with the same pinout..

 

I did a quick check. Same as you, I was unable to find one via Amazon - but I did get a couple of hits on eBay.

Thank you @n.scott.pearson​  I managed to find a 14-1 pin ASUS TPM 2.0 module on Amazon - https://www.amazon.in/14-1-Pin-TPM-Module/dp/B01DQQLH74/ref=sr_1_1?keywords=Asus+TPM+module&qid=1581... I'll give it try on my Intel DH61WW desktop board and let the community know how it goes.

Hi

I want to install windows 11.
I have the same board as you have

How do i get TPM 2.0
Is it a pluggable hardware?

Did you read this conversation in its entirety? If you had, you wouldn't need to ask this. There is a connector on the motherboard and there were TPM 2.0 modules that could be plugged into this connector. Intel did not manufacture these modules, however, so you are faced with finding a third-party module that meets the pinout of the motherboard's connector. We cannot help you with this search; we do not track who continues to offer these modules or where they might be stocked. Good luck in your search.

Yes

I read it entirely.
But i don’t completely understand.

It is confusing.
Intel is not manufacturing but the board supports TPM 2.0 module which can be plugged internally and i must search for such a module from other hardware manufacturers. Is that right?


If so can you tell me how many pin does the module should have?

Is that a universal one? From new board to old board, that module will have same number of pins?

You don’t have to help me to find the module. I will try my best but if you give me the information, i can find the right one without wasting the money

Thank you

That is correct; the board has a header for a TPM module. Intel never produced a TPM module themselves because other manufacturers were doing so and Intel simply didn't need to. Unfortunately, since there was no standard for the module's pinout, a while bunch of them emerged, making it difficult to find exactly the right one.

The pinout of the header is documented in the board's Technical Product Specification (TPS). The number of pins is not sufficient information to search for a match; the entirety of the pinout must match perfectly. You will have to read the TPS document and you will have to get the specifications for any modules that you look at to match it up. The board's documentation can be downloaded from here: Manuals, Guides, and Specifications for Desktop Boards

No!, You cannot just plug something like this in. There might be a way you can cross-wire a connector to get the right pinout, but this will depend upon getting the pinout information for the module (that for the connector on the WW board is in its Technical Product Specification).
