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.

        I have rolled back to 3.5.9 currently the best of the worst. I will never buy an NZXT cooling product again.

        This is the reason I'll never buy an NZXT products again, *** has been dire from day 1, it's not getting any better, just more bloated, and support is dire.
        I've a H630, fan controller and Kraken and they'll be my last products.

        Totally agree. If the developer want to buil a general software, they can do it but as a DIFFERENT software than the Kraken driver. Should be OPTIONAL for the NZXT HARDWARE OWNERS. As a Kraken owner I need and I want a SIMPLE solution.

        Add Kraken info to the mini view. i.e Liquid temp and fan speed. The storage section is all but useless and you could remove RAM also

        i need the gpu overclocking, its gpu overclocking fan curve is sooo much better than asus gpu tweak

        This has previously been requested by many customers and rejected by NZXT :(

        Email from NZXT:

        Our goal for CAM is to unify a lot of the PC monitoring/tuning functions into one app. We realize that this is a very aggressive goal but it is something we believe in very much. It is true that up to this point we have not done a good job in certain areas, but we believe that with time and effort we can fix the bugs and optimize this app.

        -----------------------

        so don't waste you time asking :(

        pretty much similar to that I posted a couple of minutes ago. I just want a "cam light" with is:

        - drivers
        - hardware control (in my case the Kraken X62, lights and Fan/Pump speed)

        I don't need all the other functions in CAM.
