  1. Create a simple clean version of CAM.

    I would like to have the choice to download a lightweight and clean version of CAM software.Which only include ability to turn lights on/off, set pump/fan speed and be able to easy see the most important things like CPU, GPU temps on 4k screens and nothing more.

    • CAM V3.6.0

      Version 3.6.0? Was this a joke?? I can't set a custom fan curve after 55 degrees and the software automatically takes it to 100% fan speed, within 5 degrees. Why NZXT? Do you know what this does? When I am in a game and my CPU temperature is fluctuating between 55 and 60 degrees, my PC sounds like it's on a roller coaster. And why can't I do the fan curve myself exceeding 55 degrees? There is no need for the fans to spin at 100% speed at 60 degrees, blimey.

        For those still having problems after installing version 3.6.3, if you are on the Overclocking section and you click on the down arrow next to standard and select custom, you will be able to modify the fan curves. If you are doing this and still having problems, please send your logs so we can verify what’s wrong on your setup. Thanks.

      • Control fan speed

        Need an option to control fan speed by CPU temperature custom Setting not only to 60° !!!!
        Need for Skylake-X up to 80° custom preferences possibility.

          Hello, those who had issues with the settings not saving and not being able to log in, please update to 3.6.3, it has proven to work for many who have already tried it. We are aware that some others are having issues with a strange noise in the pump, we are working on that and will have it solved by next release.

        • Savable Config File

          Please implement a savable config file so that I can back it up. Every time you update this client, all of my configurations get deleted and removed. With your newest update, it deleted all of my settings and I spent 15 minutes setting it all back up. I rebooted and then IT REMOVED MY CONFIGURATIONS AGAIN. I don't know how many times I have had to redo all of my configurations every single time you do an update or simple things like rebooting breaks your app.........

          • Project cars 2

            Is there any possibility of getting project cars 2 led effects support... I'd love my whole PC to be a rev gauge! everyone I've talked to in game agrees they'd buy nzxt just for that feature alone

            • 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?

                  Hello Peter,

                  I found that 3.6.6 is currently not starting when “Start Minimized” is selected, but if you de-select that setting it should start with Windows correctly. This is something that we reported to the dev team and they are implementing the fix for the next update.

                • Create more than 2 channel

                  I’m currently having 2 hue+ due to number of fans n led light strip I have to split them. When my system is on all fans n strip is light up but when cam software is running it sync both hue+ together causing me not to control separately and cashing some light not to light up please do something for the program

                    Which settings are you trying to apply?
                    Please be as specific as possible so we can verify if it’s a bug or just system limitations.
                    Thanks.

                      If you are using a Kraken X42/X52/X62/X72 and CAM is not detecting the device. You can try these troubleshooting steps.
                      Please go to the Devices Page and select “Detect Devices”
                      Please exit out of CAM and install this Kraken driver https://www.dropbox.com/s/ktdih3rifenohk4/Kraken%20chip%20Driver.zip?dl=0 then restart your PC and see if CAM detects the Kraken
                      Go into Control Panel and click on “View Devices and Printers” then remove the NZXT USB Device/Unknown USB Device and restart your PC. Then check CAM again.
                      If you still see a Unknown USB Device, then it seems that the USB cable is creating a bad connection to the motherboard. You can try using a different USB cable to check and see if the USB cable that came with the package is faulty. You can use a mini to regular USB cable and route it to the back of your case to test this issue. If the cable…

                      • Fan colors should work with Google home atleast via IFTT

                        Smart homes are the future, you would boost up your sales with that for sure! .. also I would be able to automatise the colors of my pc case via my voice :)
                        Now I change light colors in my room via google home and have to set matching colors with the app to my case.. lame.

                              • 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.

                                  Im seeing 400KB a second 24/7 send through cam telemetry. I have a limited data plan and this is seriously impacting it. Can we reduce the amount of data sent?

                                    • Increase H500 height and open up the front panel so it can breathe

                                      In the next revision of the H500 please increase its height to support AIO CPU coolers and more importantly open up the front panel with holes or filtered mesh, but take note not to add extra depth when doing this... Even a revised and breathable front panel as an optional extra for existing H500 owners would be appreciated.

                                      • 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…

                                        • Replace the Dev Team for CAM. They can't get it done. .

                                          This software is trash. Every time that I start up my PC, I'm never surprised about finding yet another issue with CAM. My most common issue is the software not recognizing MAIN computer components, my GPU, and sometimes even my processor. My second most common issue is that between updates, and sometimes even for no reason at all, CAM loses my saved lighting and performance profiles, over and over, and even though NZXT states that theyve fixed this, in EVERY SINGLE UPDATE, it's never been fixed. I've attempted multiple re-installations, messing with drivers, messing with even my BIOS, and yet,…
