  1. cam no longer controls my GPU fans... another bad update

    Cannot find setting to turn on any sort of GPU fan speed controler like last versions. CAM software keeps getting worse and worse and the support team literally never emails you back about any issues. Its a COMPLETE JOKE.

    Hi, thank you for reporting the issues you are currently having. We are preparing a hotfix that will be published today which will take care of the hardware detection, Fan Curve temperature, Settings not saving or lost, and languages not displaying correctly issues. Please keep in mind that some issues only come up in specific builds and that is why sometimes we can not catch them while testing. Please continue to inform us if you find any other problems.

  2. Minicam temperatures are more than double full sized interface.

    Temperature in full sized interface seem ok, switch to minicam, and it's way past boiling point!

    Hello, those who had issues with the settings not saving and not being able to log in, please update to 3.6.3, it has proven to work for many who have already tried it. We are aware that some others are having issues with a strange noise in the pump, we are working on that and will have it solved by next release.

  4. 3.6.1 GPU Fan Curve is broken

    CAM no longer saves my custom curve, applies my custom curve, and the highest point of the curve I have control over is at 55C when before i didn't have a highest point. I don't want fans at 100% until 70C but this is not possible with the new update.

  6. CAM 3.6.0 will not save settings. MiniCAM displays incorrect temp data.

    Previous version worked fine. New 3.6.0 revision removed ability to save settings and causes MiniCAM to change the data (adds about 100 F to all temps)

  9. Cam Not Detecting Led.s

    Using the n7 mobo and for the first 4 months it has detected the 2 led strips i have installed. With no changes, CAM no longer detects led/s, nor does it even show an option for them. I have tried unplugging them and starting without, then shutting down and plugging them in again and turning it on again. Nothing has worked.

    If you have updated to 3.6.2 and are still having issues with settings not saving or hardware not being detected, please try uninstalling and doing a clean install. If this still does not help. Please send us your PC specifications, including OS, Hardware and the Logs which you can find in the following places:

    C:\Users\Public\Documents\CAM
    C:\Program Files (x86)\NZXT\CAM\Logs

    By uploading them to a file sharing service and posting it here so we can verify any logged issues, or try to reproduce the errors.

    Thank you.

  12. Terrible experience

    Ordered 6 light strips and 4 were DOA but I thought it looked good with just those 2. Only using it to show a couple people and keeping the lights off mostly, now it has stopped working all together after just a couple months. Also the software is awful and the strips were randomly flickering before it died.

    If you are using a Smart Device and CAM is detecting the device but the LEDs on the strips do not light up or is lighting up in abnormal colors.
    Please be sure to check if all the strips are properly aligned. The arrow on the connection cable should be pointed to the 5V on the strip. If you are using any extension cables please check those as well.
    Please try each strip individually and see if any of them are defective. Exit out of CAM, then unplug all the strips from the Smart Device. Then plug one strip into the Smart Device and start CAM. Check and see if the strip appears in CAM and the LEDs can be controlled. Repeat this for all the strips. If the strips are the issue, please contact our support team over at https://www.nzxt.com/customer-support to look for replacement strips. Please state

  13. Using CAM and getting results for cpu and ram but not seeing fan speeds for GPU (NVIDIA GeForce GTX 750)

    Not seeing fan speed for NVIDIA GTX 750, and load shows at 100%. is there any way to get the fan speed to register on this ap? and is 100% load normal?

    The overlay requires DirectX Runtime to be installed.
    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

    Also make sure that you have tried manually enabling the overlay with the short keys (Shift + O). These shortcut keys can be changed from settings in CAM as well.

    If the instructions above does not work please let us know which games the overlay is not working on.

    Also, some games have an anti-cheat mechanism which can sometimes conflict with the CAM FPS overlay. We are currently working to fix this issue with many companies, but it is a process which takes some time and communication between the developer and NZXT.

  15. CAM still not working.

    CAM still not working, latest version. Been like this for 1 week. Kraken is not found. I can't change fans speed, light, nothing. I don't see any updates, nothing. Should i burn my kraken and buy something else?

    Hello, here are some troubleshooting tips.
    If you are using a Kraken X42/X52/X62/X72 and CAM is not detecting the device. You can try these troubleshooting steps.
    Please go to the Devices Page and select “Detect Devices”
    Please exit out of CAM and install this Kraken driver https://www.dropbox.com/s/ktdih3rifenohk4/Kraken%20chip%20Driver.zip?dl=0 then restart your PC and see if CAM detects the Kraken
    Go into Control Panel and click on “View Devices and Printers” then remove the NZXT USB Device/Unknown USB Device and restart your PC. Then check CAM again.
    If you still see a Unknown USB Device, then it seems that the USB cable is creating a bad connection to the motherboard. You can try using a different USB cable to check and see if the USB cable that came with the package is faulty. You can use a mini to regular USB cable and route it to the back of your case to…

  17. Lighting and Fan tabs are gone from CAM app.

    This is how it looks https://imgur.com/a/EsWOvm6

    I cant control the fan speed anymore and is now stuck at a minimal speed. It causes my cpu to heat up quite fast. this app was good a while ago, but after the update has gone bad.

    any idea on how to fix this guys?

    Hello J, sorry for the inconvenience you are currently experiencing.

    If the lighting and fan tabs are not showing up, it’s because CAM is not detecting them. Try going to the Devices tab and pressing on Detect Devices. If this does not work, try disconnecting and reconnecting your fans or changing the cables. Finally, if this does not work either, please send us your PC specifications, including OS and Hardware, and the Logs which you can find in the following places so we can verify any logged issues:

    C:\Users\Public\Documents\CAM
    C:\Program Files (x86)\NZXT\CAM\Logs

    Hello Kingston, sorry for the inconveniences you are currently experiencing.

    Here are the possible solutions that have been provided to me.

    Smart Device LED Strips
    If you are using a Smart Device and CAM is detecting the device but the LEDs on the strips do not light up or is lighting up in abnormal colors.
    Please be sure to check if all the strips are properly aligned. The arrow on the connection cable should be pointed to the 5V on the strip. If you are using any extension cables please check those as well.
    Please try each strip individually and see if any of them are defective. Exit out of CAM, then unplug all the strips from the Smart Device. Then plug one strip into the Smart Device and start CAM. Check and see if the strip appears in CAM and the LEDs can be controlled. Repeat this

  19. 100% load on startup

    100% load on startup
    I thought my gpu is dead after booting up to windows, ui is so laggy. I thought my ssd is dead too though I checked cam and it showed 100%gpu load on bootup but not on task manager. No gpu intensive apps where not running at the time. So I decided to uninstall it and reboot and it did it. No more ui lags like moving the mouse pointer shows lag, refreshing shows lag, etc.

    Hello, thank you for contacting CAM support and sorry for the inconveniences you are experiencing at this moment.

    If you see a message that says “There is a problem with this Windows installer package. A program run as part of the setup did not finish as expected. Contact your support personnel or package vendor.”
    Try installing Microsoft’s Diagnostic Tool to help you with the installation/uninstallation of CAM
    https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/17588/fix-problems-that-block-programs-from-being-installed-or-removed. Then try reinstalling CAM again after.

    If you are stuck on the “Preparing Files For Removal” page during installation:
    1. Open the task manager
    2. Find the process called cmd.exe *32
    3. End that process
    The installation should pick up again, if not try relaunching the installer again.

    For any other issues you can also try installing an external uninstaller (IOBit Uninstaller) http://www.iobit.com/en/advanceduninstaller.php to do a clean removal of CAM from your PC. Then try reinstalling CAM again after.
