  1. CAM 3.5.80 problem with Nvidia 397.xx driver freezes

    Since nvidia driver 397.xx I get sporadic freezes with CAM 3.4.80 on Windows 7 64bit. While in game GTA V I get sporadic freezes. I do not use the overlay.

  3. CAM/h700i smart device and my issues with them

    First I'd like to just say. Fuck this software, Ok but for real though. I admit the graphical interface looks great, navigation is also very nice but how it interacts with my system and the smart device... oh man.

    Context: I have purchased the h700i case which comes with that shitty little 'smart' device which is pretty much only good for cable management... so basically a standard fan controller except one that only works with cam software. All of my fans including my aio are hooked up to this little device and all was well.

    Problem: There seems to be…

  6. Display crashes and causes me to force shutdown the system by unplugging it (my case's power switch won't work either)

    After opening Cam, I have about 1-2 minutes before my whole system externally crashes. The computer continues to stay on (lights/fans/etc) but as far as I know everything else crashes. My display goes dark, and my mouse and keyboard won't respond to any hot keys I have set up. My only option to fix this is to force restart my computer, but my power/reset button on my case won't respond either, so I have to flip the power switch on my power supply to restart the system (which kills my soul a bit every time I have to do that).

  8. Kraken X62 pump stops as soon as CAM is installed!

    I just bought and installed your Kraken X62 and as soon as I installed the CAM software the pump stopped working. CPU temps shot up past 90 degrees and I had to uninstall the CAM, shutdown, and clear CMOS to get it to show up again.

    Perhaps you guys should stick to hardware instead of software? This seems to be an ongoing issue with you guys. Will my Gigabyte Gaming 5 Z370 control the pump fine or do I need to install CAM?

  9. Cam.exe is not running

    Hi, Dear Developer
    I have spot that Cam.exe will not open when you open it from the second time, I have checked cam launch.exe acturally open the file of CAM_V3.exe, So hoping this problem can be fixed in the next version.
    In the same time, I have bought the H700i and i use to have H440, the problem for the new case is the smart reader can only control three fans in the frount of case.
    Second problem for smart device is that it can't pass the test, error code always show at the end of the test.
    Hoping Developer…

  10. Kraken X62 microcontroller problem

    Kraken X62 microcontroller watchdog fail... I notice that when my pc is loading faster then the response time of the communication protocol of the microcontroller CAM software stuck on loading 0% because it is skipping the first handshake of the software. I notice that this is happening also with some other commands which are sent from the software to the pump, that can lead to hard restart of teh microcontroller and ruin overall the work of the pump. I suggest to write a new proceedure that will check twice for the handshake on first start with the software in background…

  12. cam+corsair ram

    Hello. I have a Kraken x62 and RAM corsair cmr32gx4m4c3466c16. When CAM is on, it is not possible to configure RGB in memory. When the CAM is off, everything works. The problem seems to be in the SPD, when CAM is enabled, it can not be read. Once you turn on the PC, you do not turn on the CAM, then asus aura perfectly controls the memory lighting.
    How to solve a problem?
    Or how to make it so that it does not prevent the ASUS aura from reading out the SPD
    Sorry, the text is translated by Google translator…

  15. v 3.5.60 --- Loading at startup stays 0% (Stop telling us you fixed it)

    I am having to constantly end task on the cam software and reload it. The forums indicate you fixed it in a previous version, I am running two different computers with the same issue.

    Please can you address this.

  19. Hard reset after turning on my PC

    Situation: Always, when I turn on my PC, log-in to my acc, SWs load including CAM and then Hard Reset itself. I'm sure the problem is between CAM and my SW/HW because when I uninstall it then everything works as it should. Usually 2 hard resets and then it loads without problems.

    I'd like to fix it because I don't like hard resets which look like black death.

    Screenshot of my log: https://prnt.sc/i309au

    PC specs:
    CPU C - NZXT X52
    CPU - AMD Ryzen 7 1800x
    GPU - ASUS ROG 1080Ti 11GB
    MB - ASUS B350 Strix
    RAM - 2x16GB…

  20. CAM causes games cannot be launched

    After updating to the latest CAM software v3.5.50, I feel like it's annoying more than ever. First of all, I dont like how the software must be running to run the HUE+ we've set. Secondly, the overlay just causes some of the game I played (e.g. Overwatch) cannot be launched. It just error. And after this update, the Overlay setting keep reverting back. So everyday I need to go to the settings and turn it off in order to play my game. Pls do fix this. Thank you

    under review  ·  Eric Lam responded

    The reason why some games are crashing can be a number of reasons. The FPS Overlay in CAM is on by default and that could be the reason why it crashes. Games that have its own launcher could also come with its own overlay which could be conflicting with with CAM’s FPS Overlay.
    The overlay requires DirectX Runtime to be installed as well.
    Please install DX Runtime and then restart your PC and see if the overlay works. The link below will take you to the download site for the installer.
    https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=35
    We also recommend playing the games in fullscreen mode when using the in-game overlay for better optimization as well.
    If your games are still crashing, we recommend disabling the overlay for the time being and please let us know which game it is crashing on.
