    I have the exact same issue. Just bought HUE 2 strips and suddenly CAM isn't working anymore. Also, why is this crap software showing my CPU temp and others? I don't care! I just need it to do lightning.

    I had this Kraken x62 sitting here for about a year and avoided installing it because I didn't want to deal with CAM.

    Then the CPU cooler on my new build started malfunctioning and I went, hey, what the hell. And I may as well reconnect the fan controller on this H700i case, too.

    And everything worked until I rebooted. Now it's stuck at "Authenticating".

    Uninstall, reinstall, uninstall with extreme prejudice, reinstall... nothing.

    I just talked with support and they'll "get back to me".

    I don't even know where this thing is getting my username from. It clearly is because when I reinstall, it says that the user already exists! I nuked every file on my system and registry with "CAM" or "NZXT" in the name.

    I love your products, NZXT, and have been using them for over a decade. CAM is why I will never use them again, nor recommend them, nor use them in builds I do for other people.

    Controlling my *fans* and AIO should not require an internet connection. Ever.

    i have been having this issue for over a month when i finished my build. it installed the first time and worked fine. then i put in corsair rbg fans and a controller completely seperate. not cam wont log in. ive reinstalled about 15 times, deleted registries, everything. its either stuck at "authenticating" or it will let me choose a log in and then just sit at 0% for hours.
    i just want to change my case lights, and im starting to get mad ...

    It's now April and this issue hasn't even been addressed?! I'm having the same problem. It was problematic/buggy before. Now it just plain doesn't work. I want my money back and honestly, at this point, I'm so disheartened that I'm going to avoid buying any NZXT products in the future.
