I've had problems with a PCI-E 3.0 card in a PCI-E 2.0 motherboard, see my answer.

Not all SSDs tolerate power loss during write operations.

Could we get the make on your mobo and video card for posterity? Fimrware revions, too?

Could we get the make/model on your mobo and video card for posterity since the combo works? Firmware revisions would great, too.

I don't think performance will be an issue for current games with a single card configuration. From what I remember forum surfing a while back, I think you'll lose a couple or three fps due to the older CPU and a similar amount due to running the card at PCI-E 2.0 speed.

@ItsGreg At lower resolutions, GPUs can be CPU limited. It's quite possible your CPU is actually being utilized, too.

How many fans and drives are in this rig?

@DavidSchwartz Possibly, depending on the number of hard drives and fans. The CPU TDP is 95w. The GPU is supposedly 60, but tom's hardware measured 68 at full load.

The LC Power might not be junk if it's a V2.2: jonnyguru.com/forums/showpost.php?p=97043&postcount=7

Were you unable to turn on BitLocker before copying some data?

@WilliamHilsum "It seems most likely that the UPS is damaged and is under performing" - Why?

comment Bitlocker on motherboard replacement
@Soum When you encrypted your data drive, you should have been offered the opportunity to save a recovery key that you could use to access the drive after it was encrypted in case of TPM failure. The recovery keys are volume specific.

comment Bitlocker on motherboard replacement
@Soum Did you not have a copy of the recovery password/key for your encrypted volume? You can always access the encrypted data with that. If you didn't save a copy when prompted you're probably out of luck unless the old motherboard could be repaired.

So you were using BitLocker with TPM+PIN? Did you have the recovery password/key stashed away somewhere? With that you should be good to go.

BitLocker can be used without a TPM.
