  1. Something like this: Seagate 3TB SATA-III Drive - ST33000650NS
    ->TCG-compliant, Self-Encrypting Drive (SED) security option (SAS models only)

  2. What about SSD?
  3. Will ST33000650NS's encryption features function on a board like ASUS P8Z68 DELUXE/GEN3 or GIGABYTE GA-Z68XP-UD5? How do you activate them? Do they appear as an option in bios?
  4. There are very very few ssd's with SED. The few that do have SED are designed for government and corporate clients. They are not designed for gamers and enthusiasts.

    I decided to do a little research. Here you go:
