Today we will be looking at Scythe's top of the line fan controller and multi function bay device - the Kama Meter. Recently Scythe has been releasing some very stellar cooling products for the enthusiast, ranging from high performance CPU heatsinks and GPU coolers to power supplies and innovative input devices. The Kama Meter is no exception to Scythe's commitment to creating a quality product. The Kama Meter carries out 3 basic but essential tasks in one very classy package. This controller has the ability to measure 4 temperature probes, control the speed of 4 fans, and even control your computers volume level. Let's have a look at the Kama Meter and see if it's a worthy component for your rig...


The Scythe Kama Meter comes packaged tightly in a very flashy looking box with a lot of feature blurbs which are done in both English and Japanese. On the left side of the box is a list of contents and on the right side of the box is a very brief specifications chart. On the back of the box displays a picture of the controller and outlines some of its features.

Upon opening the box you'll find a custom fit styrofoam insert which houses the controller, face plates, and all of the accessory cables and other goodies. Everything fits nice and snug inside and would be very hard to damage in transit as it should be packed within another box. I particularly like how they seperated all of the face plates individually so that they wouldn't bang into each other and cause any blemishes.

In the end I think that Scythe has done a great job with the packaging. As with most other Scythe products the flashy graphics on the box and such tend to be a little cluttered and over the top and it seems to be their signature. But hey, it works well!

Next let's have a look at the specifications for this controller...
