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.
This time around we have the Scythe Kamariki 4 650W modular power supply that is getting run through the gauntlet in the TweakTown labs. It is aimed more towards the mainstream market for those that need to power a single high-end or dual mid-range GPU's. It offers plenty of connections for various internal devices, so read on to find out how it performs!
Specifications, Availability and Pricing
The Scythe Kamariki 4 650W modular PSU serves up two 25A 12V rails to provide plenty of power for power hungry GPU's and CPU's in a mainstream computer. While this isn't quite enough for someone looking to break benchmark records, it should be more than enough to keep the average Joe happy.
The Kamariki 4 650W retails for around $120. Scythe gives you just about everything you can expect for a PSU in that price range, only lacking the over-temperature protection (OTP) and 50c power rating. All of this comes backed by their 2 year warranty in the event that something goes wrong. Similar to what we've seen with our recent review of the Scythe Chouriki 2 1000W power supply, Scythes market penetration in the U. S. isn't spectacular when it comes to power supplies, despite having numerous companies backing them on their various other products.
