    SSD encryption with DB85FL or DH87RL?

    ssdfan840

      I'm looking to purchase one of these boards:

       

      DB85FL

      DH87RL

       

      I'm also getting a SSD that supports hardware encryption, like Samsung's 840 EVO. Two questions:

       

      1) Both boards have TPM headers and let you configure a HDD password in the BIOS. Would either board support my SSD's hardware encryption?

       

      2) Would I need a special CPU (i7?) to use the SSD's hardware encryption, or would any LGA1150 CPU do just fine?
