Temperature, Noise Levels and Fan Speeds:

 

I am not going to give a pass or fail in this section, as the ATX12V V2.2 does not really have any references on which to base a decision.

Temperatures are purely for information only, as there are too many variables involved when installed in a case, which, by the way, it wasn't. Ambient temperature, processor cooling efficiency and case cooling fans all play their part on the temperature of the air entering the power supply, and consequently the temperature of the air leaving it. No valid conclusions can be made from this test.

Temperatures at all times remained low even after a substantial run (4 hours) at 1019W. Realistically, the Temp In would be higher, but after testing several power supplies, these results are very good and compare well with other power supplies in its class. The fan noise at 195W and 475W is very low and only becomes audible at 1019W which is to be expected.
