Scythe Kazemaster Flat Review

 

Up Close:  Packaging and contents

If you've read the other Scythe reviews or bought any Scythe products you'll know by now that Scythe aren't exactly lead protagonists of the principal that less is more.  As usual there's hardly a spare millimeter of space that's not crammed with some detail of the product within, and not a single font type, size or text colour appears to go unused.  That said, if you were to pick one of these up off the shelf in your friendly neighbourhood PC accessories store you'd not be having to cough politely and ask the chaps behind the counter if they could tell you more about it.

Inside the box we find the controller itself along with an assortment of cables.  In total we have four numbered fan power cables, which although 3 pin have sockets designed to accept a 4 pin PWM plug.  Allied to the power cables are four temperature sensor cables, each terminated in a thin copper sensor strip.  Both the power cables and the sensor cables are 65cm in length which should be plenty to reach round most Mid Tower cases, with enough slack for a bit of routing.  Power to the unit arrives via a 4 pin Molex cable fitted with a convenient pass through to prevent you losing a potentially valuable molex output.  last but not least we find a small bag containing some strips of sticky back plastic which we can use to secure our sensors, and a set of 4 screws for holding the unit fast inside the case.

With its sleek lines and low profile design the Kazemaster flat should fit behind even the snuggest fitting of case front doors.

I always wondered with these wired sensors ... aren't those "sticky plastics" accumulating heat?

Hm, the Bitfenix Recon still seems like a better option to me
