Is the SSD Samsung 830 512 GB compatible with the secure erase feature embedded in the Maximus VI Hero bios ?
Indeed, by reading the manual, I see that the SSD must be compatible otherwise the risk of corrupting it exists. I consulted ASUS website, I found a supported vendors list where supported hardware is listed. The closest SSD I found is the SAMSUNG SSD 840 PRO SERIES 128GB.
The absence of my SSD in the list does not mean it is not supported.

In other words: I have a Samsung 840 pro 256gb and looking for a motherboard. I do like the Maximus vi Hero and MSI z87 gd65 gaming motherboards. Had only the QVL for SSD's, for the vi Hero, shown that i could use the Secure erase on my SSD, i had purchased the Hero, but it didn't so i went with the gd65....
