    What's my opinion about what the outcome will be?

    I'm not too confident that this power supply will pass test one or three, since test one takes the 12V to 20A and test three up to 30A.  As usual, I'm willing to give it a shot.

    Thermaltake W0021 Zero Load Test One (367W) Test Two (302W) Test Three Full Load
    12V N/A 11.79 12.34 FAIL FAIL
    5V N/A 5.12 5.00 FAIL FAIL
    3.3V N/A 3.41 3.41 FAIL FAIL
    Efficiency N/A 75% 75% FAIL FAIL
    Power Factor N/A .70 .69 FAIL FAIL

    Temperature under load = 28.6C. Temperature after power off =46C.
