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.

I was quite surprised with the low noise level of the OCZ ModXStream-Pro 600W, even at full load. This test is a little unrealistic because the power supply is not installed in a case and the temperatures will therefore be higher in the real world, but when compared to other power supplies I have tested in this class, it is cooler and the fan ran at lower speeds.
