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.

These are temperatures a little higher than I have seen before, but it shouldn't prove to be a problem--there won't be too many users pulling 842W! There are no graphs for fan speed against output power so I cannot really tell you at what power and how fast the fan speed ramps up, but the fan noise at 172W and 454W was really quite low.  But, at full load, the fan ramped up to a massive 2025 RPM and became quite noisy.
