Packaging & Contents
The packaging of the Scythe Kama Meter is very colorful with a lot of different languages used. You will have to take a close look to engulf all the information on the packaging. It will certainly catch your attention on any store shelf, especially since some Asian writing is being used. The cardboard box is incredibly sturdy, much better than most case packaging. You will not need to worry about anything happening to this during shipping.
The box opens up just like any mainboard packaging. The first thing that was seen is the manual folded and placed atop of the foam padding. There are separate compartments for all the different parts of the Kama Meter. The top section houses cable and PCI backplane, the one below that the Kama Meter itself. The bottom two are used for the two other fronts. This is by far the best packaging I have seen in a long time.
The included manual is quite a hard read. You will need to focus on what you are reading, and the diagrams are are just that - diagrams. No hands on pictures how to install the cables or exchange covers, no pictured installation. While the information is present, most of us would not even bother looking at a manual like this.
All the cables needed are included. There are the four thermal sensors, the four fan extension cables, power cable, PCI bracket for outside audio and an internal audio cable for the onboard connector as well. There is a small bag with four screws and double sided tape for the thermal sensors as well. There is no sleeving on any of the cables, this will definitely increase your cable clutter inside the case. Sleeving would have been a very nice addition. There are three fronts included: black, white & silver. They are made of metal and are of incredible quality. The paint used for labeling is perfect for each color. The black uses silver while the other colors use blue. The quality of the Kama Meter surpasses any other front panel device I have ever used.
