Scythe Kamariki-2 550W

When I was told I was reviewing a Scythe product, I immediately assumed it would some sort of CPU cooler. Why? Well, if you read around the web, you\'ll find that Scythe has produced some of the best CPU coolers around; they happen to have over 30 coolers to their name. Then I was told it was a PSU, and while they haven\'t produced a whole lot of power supplies, I am eager to test out the Kamariki-2 based solely off their reputation for quality, which they have built in the cooling market. The Kamariki-2 looks good on paper, as it provides some nifty extra features, good supply of molex connectors and is easy on the eyes.

The results from the idle test were a bit disappointing. The voltages were a bit high for my liking, especially the 12V rail.
At 12.25, disappointing? I don't get it. [M] review is coming
