Testing:

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 fan hardly moved from its no load speed of approximately 700 RPM throughout testing which gave rise to one of the highest temperature differentials I have seen of 27.5 °C which also meant it's one of the quietest power supplies I've tested. I ran the power supply for over four hours on full DC load without any problem but that was on the work bench, out of a case and with an ambient air temperature of approximately 21 °C. I have tested around forty power supplies for OCC and none of them have behaved in this way and the fan has always ramped up to full or near full speed at maximum DC load.
