  1. Create a simple clean version of CAM.

    I would like to have the choice to download a lightweight and clean version of CAM software.Which only include ability to turn lights on/off, set pump/fan speed and be able to easy see the most important things like CPU, GPU temps on 4k screens and nothing more.

    • New CAM not as good as the old version.

      Looks aside, this new CAM redesign leaves much to be desired. Please bring back the ability to see multiple GPU's on the dashboard and bring back the HUE and cooling options on the dashboard. Having to fish through menus to change HUE/Fan settings is much less intuitive than the previous version. Honestly wish I never upgraded it.

        We are looking into bringing back the quick controls to lighting and cooling on the dashboard. It’ll replace the HDD section. What do you guys think?

      • Fan colors should work with Google home atleast via IFTT

        Smart homes are the future, you would boost up your sales with that for sure! .. also I would be able to automatise the colors of my pc case via my voice :)
        Now I change light colors in my room via google home and have to set matching colors with the app to my case.. lame.

          • A CAM that just tells me my temps and controls my Kraken

            Some folks surely do use all the features in your program, but i do not and i doubt i'm alone.

            I have 2 needs for CAM, detect my temps and the ability to control my CPU cooler.

            I do not need CAM's:
            Gaming overlay
            GPU overclocking
            HDD detection
            Network tracker
            FPS counter

            Right now you provide only one option, All of it.

            Perhaps you are aware of the community's desire for a CAM light. In my opinion CAM should be the bare bones with the smallest footprint/impact on a system, and all the extra should be CAM+ or something.

            • Kill CAM as it is and start again, seriously.

              Please admins, take a deep breath, step back and think before deleting this.
              CAM is horrible, regardless of whether the devs like it or not let the customer be the judge.
              Google your product and read what people have to say on public forums etc, hell even here!
              It's a bloated piece of software essential to the configuration of system cooling (which it does poorly with missing essential features!) and includes and incredible amount of bloat and useless features that people are not using.
              People are asking for minimal, asking for fast loading, asking for CPU & GPU temp to…

              • CAM stuck loading at 95%

                CAM stuck loading at 95%
                As the title says my CAM won't let me log in anymore and is always getting stuck at 95%

                I tried launching as admin and restarting several times.

                When i tried to log in as guest, the software just hangs for about 2 minutes and then crashes.

                  • The CAM overly locks fps at 120fps.

                    Very problematic especially when playing FPS on 144Hz Monitor.

                      • Delayed start in Microsoft Enviroment Scheduled Task for CAM software

                        An option in CAM software to set auto-start to 1-10 sec. delay. This will solve many problems when running CAM from RAMDISK, finding KRAKEN, Hue+ and other components controlled by CAM. I did a manuel entry in Scheduled task manager with a 3 sec. delay - allways find all CAM components and program can run CAM from a RAMDISK to solve big writing transfer on SSD disks.

                        • Assistant/IFTTT integration

                          That would be great to make Hue+ lighting compatible with IFTTT. So for exemple we could tell Google Assistant to change the colors, etc. Or even better, making it directly compatible with assistants, like GA, Alexa, etc

                          • Integration between CAM and Philips Hue for better entertainment

                            Hello NZXT!

                            As announced on CES 2018, Philips and Razer Team Up for Game-Activated Hue Lights for collaboration that allows Philips Hue line of lights to integrate with Razer Chroma-enabled devices.

                            Game developers can use Razer's Chroma SDK to built lighting effects that will impact Hue and Chroma devices, and many games have already adopted support, like Overwatch, Quake Champions, Factorio, Killing Floor 2, and more.

                            Could you please also consider working with Philips to bring integration between NZXT CAM and Philips Hue products? Thus making possible to extend CAM lightening experience outside PC, to the whole room entertainment area.

                            • Grid+ V3 ANR Stressing

                              I would like the option to start, stop and pause the ANR calibration process. I have a custom water loop with a large reservoir that take time for the temperatures to equalize. My loop needs more than 30 minuets to reach max temp so CAM always calibrates to much lower temps.

                              Also having the option to stress the system yourself would be nice as it only stresses my CPU to 50% and doesn't do anything to the GPU.

                                • New version compatible with ASUS AURA SYNC?

                                  For a new version, better to put an option "Compatible with ASUS AURA SYNC" for RGB, and fewer errors that in the mobile application does not work.

                                  • CAM "light" please

                                    just picked up the Kraken X62 and it's a very nice piece of hardware. however, to control the lights and fans I have to use a "not so nice" piece of software called "CAM" with tons of functions I don't need and eating up ressources I want to use elsewhere. I actually use AIDA64 Extreme for all my monitoring needs and I would really love to see a CAM version without all the bells and whistles. just a driver and settings for my hardware.

                                    ohh, and the CAM software doesn't even start every time I reboot because it's stuck in…

                                      RGB sync control to one place. instead of by peripherals.

                                      • Terrible software!

                                        When the program was launched, all applications and games disappeared! When the computer was restarted, the motherboard did not start! Do something about it! I can not set the fucking backlight!

                                          Would be nice to have an option to toggle the overlay even if you are out of game
