Scythe started out in 2002 as a Japanese based company wanting to produce quality products for PC enthusiasts. They hit it off big with their super quiet and super cool Kamakaze CPU cooler. It didn't take long for them to expand their product line, export products worldwide, and expand their base of operations around the world.
In 2004, Scythe established operations in the USA to work more closely with their American based partners and numerous manufacturers. Long has passed since the days of the first Kamakaze cooler and their products have evolved as well.
Today we are taking a look at the new Chouriki 2 line of power supplies and we have the top of the line 1000W modular PSU on the bench. The Chouriki 2 line boasts large amounts of power, an 80 Plus Silver rating, and near silence, but can the beast we have back up what it boasts? Read on to find out, starting with the specifications.
Specifications, Availability and Pricing
Upon examining the I/O specifications of the Chouriki 2 1000W, you can see that Scythe clearly focuses on putting out an ample amount of 12V power; so much so that you could fully load down the PSU with only 12V and still reach the claimed maximum output of the PSU (1000W).
About the only option that Scythe doesn't include is a 50c rating. They pack the Chouriki 2 full of the required over current/voltage/power, under current/voltage protection, short circuit protection, and even throw in the optional over temperature protection (OTP) and back it all by a 5 year warranty. Scythe sent us the modular version of the Chouriki 2 1000W power supply for review. There are four different wattages in the lineup and each is available with or without modular cables.
The MSRP on the Chouriki 2 1000W Modular is $185. Each model is around $10-13 cheaper without cable management. A quick check at a majority of the major online sites (Newegg, TigerDirect, etc. ) will not yield a result, but a quick Google search will get you an online price of ~$142 which is very competitively priced for similar PSU's. It would be nice to see wider availability of Scythe's power supplies, especially since many of the larger shops carry other Scythe products.
