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 IN WIN Commander 1200W remained cool at all times even with a load of 1193W. The no load fan speed of the IN WIN Commander 1200W is fairly high at just over 1000 RPM but even at this speed the fan noise is bearly audible. The fan speed along with noise does however ramp up and become quite noticeable when the unit is supplying just short of 1200W which is to be expected.
