  1. 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?

    • 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…

      • 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.

        • 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…

            • CAM software makes me apprehensive about their products

              Out of all the software I use the CAM software surely crashes the most. Its extremely unstable, constantly pesters me to login via Facebook and makes me never want to purchase another product from this company again.

              The watercooler I have works great otherwise, but if I don't run the NZXT software, then the watercooler runs extremely loud.

              Please redo this software, it is simply not a working solution. Even if this was some sort of prototype/alpha software I'd be somewhat disappointed, but this is supposed to be production ready.

              No other benchmarking or hardware monitoring software I have has…

              • 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.

                      • 3.5.10 Update. Not what we want.

                        CAM software should be about cooling and RGB lighting. Nothing more. No need to monitor RAM and hard drive storage and all the other stuff it tries to do. MiniCAM should only show CPU and GPU temps, fan speeds and liquid temp. I should also be able to change fan modes from MiniCAM LIKE I USED TO. You update and make things worse. Please stop. As others have said: make a light version that simply lets us control our cooling and lighting. Period.

                        • Lighting for NZXT Kraken X62 lighting doesn't change

                          I am having problems with my Cam software. When I try to change my lighting in my Kraken x62, the color just stays on blue (Standard Color). I think that the old Cam version was much better before. Please, please, please fix this in the next update! Spent more money on x62 because of the lights, and its very anoying that it doesn't work.

                          • Improved fan custom curves

                            I would like to see total freedom with setting a custom fan curve in CAM. It's currently very limited. I would like to be able to set point from 0-100C from 0-max RPM and have it based on the temp of the actual CPU package rather than liquid temp. Other than that its been great!

                              • Fan curve based on CPU and GPU temperature?

                                An relatively old program called SpeedFan had an option to set a CPU and a GPU fan curve for each fan and automatically apply the higher value of each curve so that the fans turn on if the CPU or the GPU gets too hot. I would love a feature like that in CAM because often your GPU gets hot while gaming although your CPU stays cool or the CPU get hot while rendering although the GPU stays cool.

                                • Ability to sync different modes on fans + led strips

                                  I think the ability of syncing different modes on the fans + strips (or maybe even fans + fans/strips+ strips) would be awesome.

                                  For example, syncing a fade from one colour to another on the fans, to a covering marquee on the LEDs, so that when the marquee is covering the case in one colour, the fan glows that colour, and when it changes to the second colour on the marquee, the fan syncs its next fade with that.

                                  Also finer control of the speeds may be good, i.e. allowing you to set a certain speed in seconds, rather than…
