    • Integrated GPU support

      Simple request, can iGPU support be reconsidered now that DirectX12 is supported and they're pretty powerful now? There must be tons of people playing indie or mainstream games like LOL/HOTS/Counterstrike on these laptops these days that would love CAM support, I know I do! :)

      There was another rejected request about this around june 2015 with a note saying they'd reconsider once DirectX12 was support. The future is now!

      • Solve the "Voltage" ambiguity under "CPU STATUS"

        In the advanced dashboard under CPU status, the "Voltage" should show the VCore voltage (actual voltage the CPU receives) and not the VID ("suggested voltage" by manufacturer for this CPU state).

        Or it should be renamed to "Voltage target" to avoid confusion.

        • Hue+ program link

          It would be awesome if there was a way to link programs to the different profiles on hue+. That way when you open up spotify or whatever music player it switches to an audio profile or have different color profiles for different games and so on.

          • Folder Mounted Drives

            Folder mounted drives don't show up in the dashboard. I'd like to be able to monitor how much space is left on my Games drive (Mounted to C:\Games), but the drive list on the dashboard only shows drives mounted on the top level (C, D, E...).

            • Rename Temperature feature.

              Rename Temperature feature. Tempereature 1 and 2 are Cpu socket and Motherboard in the case of my system, would be good to have it display this, so I can show it in expanded or in advanced a description that would then show me or a viewer who doesn't know when viewing the snapshots, the gpu, socket, mobo and core temp(x61 cooling plate)

              • Minimise to tray option that unloads GUI and reduces resource useage

                At the moment you can minimise the app, but the GUI is still loaded into memory and using resources. This can be verified by hovering your mouse over the taskbar and seeing the small thumbnail of the GUI.

                It would be useful to be able to minimise to tray so that there's no GUI loaded in memory at all. This would be useful for users who use tha app in a headless configuration to view on a smartphone or just in-game.

                • Think I found out why CAM has been refusing to open after restarting/shutting down PC (For me atleast, hopefully this helps others aswell)

                  If CAM would open after a clean install but would refuse to open after PC had restart or shutdown (or would just refuse to open eventually) then hopefully this will help you.

                  After trying to reinstall multiple times, trying all the suggestions from the admins and banging my head against my desk for a while, it turns out the problem was my actual CAM account...
                  After a fresh install of CAM and creating a fresh account with a secondary email CAM is working fine.

                  The exact steps I to are...

                  1. Uninstall CAM (again!!!)
                  2. Restart PC
                  3. Download the…

                  • CAM ideas

                    Add fan curve editor for both kraken and grid+ that's similar to MSI Afterburner. Allow pump speed control for kraken x61, x41, and x31. Editor to allow users to create their own lighting effects for hue+. Add separate FX per led strip, per channel. Rename Wave light effect to Knight Rider (lol, couldn't help myself). Use msi afterburner as inspiration to create a much more complex overlooking tool. In app feedback and bug report. DirectX12 overlay support. Cpu overclocking tool. Preset static pressure and airflow setting for kraken (and maybe grid+) for people who use one type of fan or…

                    • Mini CAM settings

                      I just got this and it is very useful so far! I would however like to be able to customize what the "Mini CAM" shows. For example my concern is more with the load than the temperature so if I could switch it to show that large and the temperature small that would be great! And I'm sure it would be helpful in other ways too if you could say "these three are most important to me show it in mini cam" or whatever.

                      • Have an audio mode that splits from the middle and pulses outward

                        So it would kinda work like the sync mode, only it would reverse in direction halfway through. So at say 1/4 volume/intensity with 4 strips it would look something like this

                        ..........|.....-----|-----.....|.....

                        or with 2 strips it would be like this:

                        .......---|---.......

                        ( . being off, - being on and | being the break between strips)

                        this would work especially well for those of us who use the Hue strips on our desks as currently the lighting is kinda lopsided when I use audio mode unless it's at full intensity (my monitor sits right between strip 2 and 3 out…

                        • Modifitation réglage ventilation gpu

                          En faite j'utilise votre logiciel pour OC ma gtx 1080. Ça fonctionne bien pour le moment. Il y a aussi un réglage de la courbe de ventilation et la c'est problématique.

                          Je m'explique. Quand on créer un nouveau profil de ventilation
                          On peux faire le mode zéro rpm jusqu'à 30, 40, 50 degrés comme on veux. Le problème c'est que ensuite dès qu'on veux que le ventilateur démarre. On ne peux pas le faire démarrer directement à 30 % admettons. Il va démarrer à admettons 40° à 1% jusqu'à 45° 40% ce qui provoque des arrêts et démarrage en boucle…

                          • Fix Hue+ detection issues and provide a Stand-Alone Hue+ Control UI for download

                            Please Fix Hue+ detection issues and provide a Stand-Alone Hue+ Control UI for download.

                            It would be useful to have a stand-alone module to control Hue+ in order to eliminate the need for the CAM interface to the hardware in situations where users already run other software for OC and tweeking. It should also have a "refresh and detect hardware" button/option built in so that Hue+ devices could be scanned for on the PC and a connection could be re-established. CAM only shows the Hue+ when the software detects the device, and so there is no way to scan for…

                            • Add tie in with Razer Chroma SDK for Hue+

                              I see there was an idea a few months ago for this that is marked completed. Being that you guys have teamed up with Razer for 2 cases (both of which I own) I would love to be able to sync up my Hue + with my Razer gear and since they have their SDK open I would think it should be possible. Any updates on this?

                                  • Loading CAM...

                                    It takes around 10 seconds to load CAM and sign in automatically - eventhough I don't use Tuning features (if it affects...).

                                    Only using for monitoring and in-game overlay, and love them being covered using one application.

                                    Much appreciate if you guys can cut down the loading time.

                                      Hey there, thanks for the feedback. We’ll definitely look into optimizing CAM better so that it isn’t as heavy loading wise. Can you try going into settings and disabling Top Apps / HDD detection and see if that helps with the loading time.

                                    • Screenshot in game + fps limiter

                                      Hi, i love your program, so I disabled all others (because of collisions)

                                      S I am missing screenshot feature:
                                      a) set a folder for images
                                      b) set a key for screenshots
                                      c) choose if overlay should be on screenshot or not (optional, convenient, not necessary)
                                      d) save a screenshot named by exe and date (something like "witcher3 2016-05-05 23:59:59" )

                                      Also, FPS limiter would be nice (it helps in some games with stuttering).

                                      Both of these features I could use in afterburner/rivaturner combo, but I would prefer to use single app, which is your target usage I believe, so please,…

                                      • CAM Mobile Version Push Notifications

                                        I would like to see push notifications for the cam mobile app. That way when the notification criteria is triggered the cam mobile app will push a notification message to the mobile phone home screen.

                                        There's been a few times notifications were triggered but I was away from my computer and didn't know until I got back because I don't constantly monitor the CAM Mobile application for notifications.

                                        • App scaling

                                          I would like the main CAM page to scale to whatever size window.
                                          When the program opens it has a rather small default size.

                                          When you maximize the page, it gives you a different look.
                                          I want the way it looks when the app starts up, to be able to scale to any size page.

                                          I use a micro monitor affixed to my pc to monitor my pc with CAM software, but nee to make custom resolutions to get the default app size to fill the screen completely, without maximizing and changing the visual layout.
