  1. UWP Universal Windows Platform App

    Now it easy to rewrite or port your app to UWP which not only allows for easy propagation via windows store but also would enable relatively easy Windows 10 mobile entry.

  2. Variable Refresh Rate for Hardware Parameters

    I would like to have a user-configurable speed on which Hardware Parameters like Load/Utilization and Core Temperatures get refreshed/update like 1x/2x/3x/4x/5x... per second or 100ms/150ms/200ms/250ms/300ms... like in other Hardware Monitoring Tools like Core Temp and GPU-Z.
    The user can also more accurately monitor the status of their PC Components if these parameters refresh more often.

  3. More customizations for FPS Overlay

    I'd like to chose a border color for the overlay text because sometimes when the color is too bright on a bright bachground is nearly impossbile to read it.

    And would be a good thing to let users chose how info are shown and the position for each one (I like to have the FPS counter in the top right corner and GPU / CPU stats in the top left corner) just like HWInfo + RTSS do, they let you customize EVERYTHING of the OSD also units and names.

    Hey there, thanks for the suggestion. We can definitely look into adding more features into the overlay text.

  4. CPU Fan speed.

    Dont put CPU/GPU fan speed on the basic front page.
    1. it doesnt recognise my motherboard (Asus Maximuss VIII Hero) While a fan is attached.
    2. My pc is watercooled so no fan on the GPU
    3. N/A or 0 is just plain annoying and useless info.
    Are older versions still available for download?

  5. Better GPU fan control in cam 3.1

    In the latest version of Cam 3.1, the GPU overclocking tool has limitations with the gpu fan even with manual or custom setting it wont go bellow 40% fan speed yet with MSI afterburner i can have it from 20%(0speed) to 100%, also an option to disable this so that if i have issues with your overclocking tool i can use Afterburner without conflict.

    Hi guys,
    With version 3.1.2, CAM will not override your BIOS settings. If you change your fan profile, you can always revert to the BIOS setting by clicking on “Reset Settings”. We are looking into allowing fan percentages lower than 40%.

  6. Two different fan curves

    Would it be possible to implement two different fan curves, one for ramping up and the other one for ramping down. Even with fan hysteresis my fans keep starting at full throttle only to shut down again after 1-2 secounds. This keeps repeting as the temperature changes quickly.

  8. When your Wallpapers Cycle to other wallpapers the Hue+ system pick's that up and trys to match the current wallpapers color with the LED's

    Its simple wallpaper changes hue+ identifies the most common color in the picture and adjust accordingly , this is for people who have a lot of wallpapers and like to cycle thru them but also want the PC lights to match the current wallpaper

  9. More precise control over fan speed for Grid+ V2

    I have 2x Noiseblocker E-Loop B12-4 fans (speed: 2400 RPM ±10%, Voltage Range: 3.3 - 12.0 V DC, Input Current: 0.32A, Input Power: 3.84W, Connection: 3-pin) and 2x Noiseblocker E-Loop B14-3 fans (speed: 1400 RPM ±10%, Voltage Range: 4.0 - 12.0 V DC, Input Current: 0.19A, Input Power: 2.28W, Connection: 3-pin) all connected to the Grid+ V2 fan controller.

    Currently, the CAM software (v3.1.2) allows us to change the value of the fan speed when creating a new custom mode curve by increments of 5%. Any chance you can, instead, let us increase that value by increments of 1%? Even…

  10. Overall profiles

    Just got my GRID+ and was very disappointed to find no overall profile system in the CAM software.

    What I really want is to configure several overall profiles and then, within each, configure what each fan should do. That way I can have a quiet profile with some fans on a quiet curve and others off completely, a full power profile with every fan on full and then a profile somewhere in the middle. I could then use the system tray app to quick flick between profiles in one go and all fans would change to their settings for that…

  11. Fan speed Graph tracker

    It would be awesome if there was a way to view/track the fans speed/RPM on a graph, so you can see when they rev up/slow down - This way it would be easier to track the RPM and see if it needs adjusting between certain thresholds.

  12. Sound integration

    It would be awesome if the cam software had a setting purely for listening to music that would detect the BPM and other general of rhythm beats and then while using other regular Hue settings, dim the lights or even run through separate custom music light shows in sync with the music

  13. Please allow us to control fan speed based on "any highest" temperature.

    CAM currently allows me to set my fan speed based on one of LIQUID, CPU or GPU.

    The Kraken is the main air-inlet to my case, I would like to be able to increase the fan speed when any of the above increases in temperature (preferably with 3 graphs).

    Currently if I select GPU temperature then I could be running CPU-intensive tasks without adequate cooling (and vice-versa).

    I CPU/GPU combo would be good enough (coolant temp is more controllable).

  14. Combine Presets

    I would love to combine smart mode with presets. For example, if i reach 70° it starts to strobe in red or maybe "it takes fire" with candlelight preset.

    This is a really good suggestion. We’ll take these into consideration as we add more variety to the lighting modes.

  15. Universal Dimming for Hue+

    I've noticed moving a color on the spectrum to the darker end dims it but basically keeps it the same color, with this in mind, it would be nice if you can add a universal dimmer that does this so you don't have to create custom profiles and go through each color moving them toward the bottom. Convenience!

  16. Notifications - Criteria needs to be true for x seconds option

    hey,

    it would be great if there would be a option for the notifications which sets that the notification will only get send if the temp/load is over that value for X seconds.

    My CPU temp jumps over 80 for a second sometimes and the notifications about that are getting annoying.

  17. Random LEDs on Hue+

    Could you add a profile that will cause random LEDs on a channel to flash/change color? I'm trying to create a "sky" effect for the top of my case and I'd like to have lightning.

  18. Give us an option to set the pattern speed in HUE+ according to the GPU/CPU load

    I think it would be nice to have an option in HUE+ where you can make it so the "interval" value on HUE+ (or maybe brightness for those profiles that have a fixed color) depends on our GPU / CPU load. For example:

    CPU/GPU load at less than 10%: Pattern stopped / lights off
    CPU/GPU load at 10-30%: Interval: Slowest
    CPU/GPU load at 30-50%: Interval: Slow
    CPU/GPU load at 50-70%: Interval: Medium
    CPU/GPU load at 70-90%: Interval: fast
    CPU/GPU load at 90-100%: Interval: fastest

    Maybe add a "check every X seconds" so users won't turn crazy because their lights go…

    Hi,
    Sorry for the late response. This is a great idea and we will add the feature in an update soon!

  19. Profiles need more fan speeds per temperature

    As of current the kraken operates with default profiles with 6 total points of adjustment. My suggestion would be to increase the amount of points to prevent from fans constantly revving up and revving down. Doubling the amount of points could prevent this problem. If you look at the default silent profile between 50C and 55C there is a huge fan speed change to prevent overheating but the fans jump from 35% to 55% which for fans with no softened increase cause sound annoyances. I'm starting to regret purchasing this product because of this huge flaw.

    TL:DR More points of…

    Hi Justin,
    Thanks for the suggestion. We are looking at this idea and others to smooth the transition between fan speeds. I will post a reply here once we’ve reached a consensus.

  20. Dashboard section shows summary of all 6 fans like the cpu and gpu load and temp

    The Dashboard should be the Single Pane of Glass you want open but it only displays the performance for 1 of the 6 fans you have in grid+. why not display each controlled fan like the CPU and GPU load but smaller. group them all together at the bottom. no need to be able to change the settings there. we can always go to the grid+ tab to change settings.
