not even sure if I ever enabled the tpm, I use to encrypt stuff with veracrypt..

 

anyway even if it was enable with just the key they shouldn't be able to do anything with it right?

Not really no.

like I said the settings for tpm have a clear option (or they should)

Your motherboard doesn’t even store the windows 10 code. All it stores is the BIOS.

So don’t worry about your information when selling your mobo unless you’re also selling the storage medium(SSD or Hard drive) with it.

This isn’t 100% true, it might contain keys in the tpm depending.

I believe those can be cleared in the bios

I could use some help with this!

please, pm me if you would like to contribute to my gpu bios database (includes overclocking bios, stock bios, and upgrades to gpus via modding)
