For a mainstream power supply, Scythe offers up plenty of connections with the Kamariki 4. Attached directly to the PSU are the main 20+4 and ATX 4+4 pin connectors. The rest of the cabling is modular and can be connected as needed. This includes a total of two 6+2 pin PCI-E cables, two Molex + FDD cables offering six Molex and two FDD connections, and two SATA cables offering eight SATA connections. Also included are three extension cables for fans if you opt to use the PSU to control their speed.
Rail distribution is split up amongst two 12V rails. The first rail powers the 20+4 main connector, one modular PCI-E cable and two modular peripheral cables. The second rail powers the ATX 4+4 cable, one modular PCI-E cable, and the remaining two modular peripheral cables. The external fans are also run off of the second 12V rail.
A Look Inside
Opening up the Kamariki 4 shows a trio of heatsinks directly above the fan to help keep temperatures down.
Here we see where the two 12V rails terminate. Notice the capacitors that are pictured above. While these are rated at 105c just as the external packaging indicates, they most certainly are not Japanese. They are in fact Taiwanese and manufactured by the Transcend Electrolytic Co. (TREC). This is a tad misleading on Scythe's part.
Over on the other side of things, we see that the primary caps are in fact Japanese Chemi-con capacitors and are rated for 105c. It would be nice to see Scythe stick to strictly Japanese capacitors for the best quality.
