Does anyone know which desktop boards actually support HDD passwords for use with Intel 520 SSD?

It seems like Intel themselves doesn't even know.

I've figured out that DQ67* and some of DZ77* support ATA security but are there any others and which ones in the DZ77* range does support it for sure?

The following Intel® Desktop Boards support hard disk drive (HDD) passwords, but afaik, they only support weak passwords (8 chars), so you should not rely on this feature to protect your data.

Intel® 7 Series Chipset Family Boards 

  • DZ77SL-50K
  • DZ77RE-75K
  • DZ77GAL-70K
  • DZ77GA-70K
  • DZ77BH-55K
  • DZ75ML-45K
  • DX79TO
  • DX79SR
  • DX79SI
  • DQ77MK
  • DQ77KB
  • DQ77CP
  • DH77KC
  • DH77EB
  • DH77DF
  • DB75EN

From Intel's motherboard documentation:

"Password can be 2-8 alphanumeric characters in length."
