Cabling Arrangement & A Look Inside

Scythe gives you a mess of cables to handle just about everything that you'll need. There is a single 20+4 pin main connector, one ATX 4+4 connector, six 6+2 pin PCI-E connectors, five Molex connectors, seven SATA connectors, and a single floppy for those still needing one.

Scythe splits up the 12V rails into a larger 70A rail and a smaller 35A rail. The larger rail powers the motherboard, the two attached PCI-E cables, two modular PCI-E cables, and three of the modular peripheral cables. The smaller 35A rail still gets its share of the load from the ATX 4+4 cable, two modular PCI-E cables, and three modular peripheral cables.

Opening up the Chouriki 2 1000W, we can see that Scythe has made sure to utilize heatsinks as much as possible.

High quality Japanese Nippon Chemi-Con caps that are rated for 105c are present inside the Chouriki 2, which seem to be very common amongst many of the latest PSU's.

Here we see where the two 12V rails terminate. The differently sheathed yellow wires make it easy to track down where the different rails lead.
