Testing:

TX850V2

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 Corsair TX850V2 kicked off with a fan starting speed of 1200 RPM which is a little higher than I've seen on other power supplies but with a quoted noise level of only 25dB it's very quiet. The full load speed of 2200 RPM is a different story and with a quoted noise level of 40dB it's certainly noticeable but not quite unbearable. Temperature differentials across the power supply are typical and there's nothing here out of the ordinary.
