  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.

    • CAM V3.6.0

      Version 3.6.0? Was this a joke?? I can't set a custom fan curve after 55 degrees and the software automatically takes it to 100% fan speed, within 5 degrees. Why NZXT? Do you know what this does? When I am in a game and my CPU temperature is fluctuating between 55 and 60 degrees, my PC sounds like it's on a roller coaster. And why can't I do the fan curve myself exceeding 55 degrees? There is no need for the fans to spin at 100% speed at 60 degrees, blimey.

        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.

      • Savable Config File

        Please implement a savable config file so that I can back it up. Every time you update this client, all of my configurations get deleted and removed. With your newest update, it deleted all of my settings and I spent 15 minutes setting it all back up. I rebooted and then IT REMOVED MY CONFIGURATIONS AGAIN. I don't know how many times I have had to redo all of my configurations every single time you do an update or simple things like rebooting breaks your app.........

          • 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.

              under review  ·  fan.ding responded

              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.

                    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 test this issue. If the cable…

                  • 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.

                          • 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.

                                Would love to do GPU voltage OC in CAM. I had to use Afterburner for this. SO MANY DIFFERENT APPS! NUTS! INTEGRATIONS!.

                                • New Selection Method Does Not Work Well in Cooling Tab

                                  First of all, kudos fixing the new version issue with 3.5.2. It works fine now.

                                  However I don't quite get why the multiple selection is implemented in the Cooling tab tho. I have to deselect one to select another, which is a hassle for no good reason as I cannot edit multiple fan and pump curves together anyways. And the tick box is so small that I have to sharpen my focus to click it...maybe make the entire bar clickable at least or just get rid of the multiple selection?

                                    • Cam 3.6.1 data usage is extreme

                                      Im seeing 400KB a second 24/7 send through cam telemetry. I have a limited data plan and this is seriously impacting it. Can we reduce the amount of data sent?

                                        • Allow Kraken to use smart lighting based on liquid temperature rather than cpu or gpu temp

                                          Allow smart lighting for Kraken x62 to be temperature based on liquid temp rather than just CPU or GPU.The liquid temps are much more stable and give me a better "average" of cpu temps to monitor right on the pump. Also, since the 3.6.1 build rolled out, it wiped my settings and I'm no longer able to find where the liquid temperature is even listed.
