How To Enable TPM on Gigabyte Z390 Boards

Many days of searching and I hope this helps someone.


Bios mode = Advanced


In my Z390 Aorus, this setting for on chip TPM is available in miscellaneous, then enable PTT.


In later Z390 boards, they put the PTT toggle under Peripherals.


I passed the Windows 11 Test after that with my 9th Gen I9.


I will likely cancel my order for the true TPM module for that board, since it was near $50 instead of it’s normal $20.

    <p>Thanks, my board is that with a 9700K processor… (I went non-hyperthreaded because I figured eventually the hyperthreaded version won’t be worth it after it gets patched for exploits 😮 )</p>

    <p>Will this not brick my system?</p>

    <p>Thanyou for posting this. I have the exact system with a I5 9600-K CPU. Like you I had trouble finding ANYTHING in the manual that Gigabyte provided. Luckly your post referred to PPT which I found under peripherals. </p><p><br></p><p>FYI – this did not "brick" my system. It did require a setup of a PIN for sign-on which was probably a goood idea.</p>
