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.

The Antec HCG-620 power supply produced a typical set of results in this section although fan noise may be a problem for some users. The fan was barely audible at 50% DC loading but once fully loaded the fan ramped up to 2000RPM; not overly loud but it would certainly be noticeable in a quiet room.
