  4. Not detecting laptop fans

    Just wondering if there is a way to get my laptop fans to show in CAM? Motherboard is P7xxDM(-G). I believe it is a Clevo motherboard. Actual laptop is Metabox but i think that is the reseller here in Australia.
    Thanks,

  5. 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

    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.

  8. CAM 3.5.8 possibly causing crash

    CAM 3.5.8 is possibly causing crash and freeze the whole pc, even the power/reset buttons won’t work.

    I installed a new heatsink last week and reassemble the whole pc. I decided to try out CAM that day since I would like to purchase a Grid V3.
    Then I got 4 restarts that day, and thought that some hareware might have gone wrong.
    I replaced the PSU by a new one and there’s no restarts. Instead I’m getting some freezes. The power/reset buttons were also freezed.
    I decided to uninstall CAM 3 days ago and I have not encounter any freeze/crash.…

    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…

  11. Only the backlighting functionality is needed

    And, most importantly, add the option of opting-out the collection of diagnostic data from video cards, temperatures, cooler speeds and all that. To me, for example, from your program, only the backlighting functionality is needed, and not yet a lot of garbage that I do not need, the work of which greatly increases the DPС Latency to 4000(!!!).

    You need to add even more flexibility to your program. To fix bugs when autostart HUE + would also not prevent, and then, sometimes, the backlight itself does not work until you click on apply in the program.

    Thank you.

  12. Fans don't go up in rpm on Windows 10 1803 with Cam Software

    The CAM program works correctly except for the fans. I've created a profile where at 50 degrees (CPU) the fans should be at 100% rpm but never go above the minimum rpm.

    Please, update Cam Software.

  14. 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

    Thank you for your cooperation and time.

  17. 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.

  19. Kraken not detected...

    Today i've changed from Windows 7 to Windows 10. I've said Microsoft had more than 2 years to fix most of the bugs.. I've thought everything will be better... but it isn't..
    First problem is that CAM isn't detecting my Kraken.. Reinstalling and still same problem. CAM version is 3.5.90. On Windows 7 everything was just fine !
