  1. Network/Internet Activity Graphs

    There are many network/internet monitoring programs out there that can be used for inspiration, but these are the features that come to my mind:

    1. Graph showing periodic pings to a given IP/web-address. The user can enter "google.com" and/or their website's address, for example, and set it to ping ever second or minute. This would act as a heart beat of the user's connection to the website(s) or the internet in general.
    2. Graph showing internet upload/download speeds. Maybe have the program conduct an internet speed test periodically (a period prescribed by the user) to show how the speeds differ…

    • Please port to Linux!

      It wouldn't be that hard. You're ignoring a potentially huge influx of customers that Linux support would bring. It already seems like a great software, and I can imagine only that a Linux version would be even greater. Thanks.

      • Make the fans be controlled by both CPU and GPU temp on the Grid+ simultaneously

        I want to control the fans on my grid+ based off both CPU and GPU simultaneously,

        So take the scenario, where I have a more graphics intensive application. I have to currently switch over to a profile that adjusts the fans based on GPU temps, If I then start using a CPU intensive application I have to again change the profile to one that adjusts based on CPU.

        Instead I want a single profile that allows me to define a graph for my cpu and gpu, then basically if the graph for the GPU has a higher fan speed than…

          under review  ·  fan.ding responded

          This is an excellent suggestion! What you are saying is that we allow users to create a “smart” profile depending on whether the CPU or GPU or both is getting hot. Don’t be surprised to see this feature soon.

          • 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.

            • 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,…

              • Add option to force CAM start on another display.

                Many people these days, like myself, have a second monitor.
                And every single time i open my computer i have to move CAM to my second monitor.
                By adding an option to select which monitor it starts or simply making CAM remember which display coordinates it last was, this extra step will no longer be required.

                • Overclock the GPU but keep fan on automatic

                  My GPU sits with the fan on 0% until it's actually under load. I'm not able to use the GPU overclock option as it forces me to manually override this very useful feature, would be a lot better if manual fan control was optional.

                  • Please reduce the pump speed of the kraken x72

                    Hello nzxt team,
                    I use the x72 kraken with Corsair RGB fans and it works perfect, but when i reduce the speed of all my fans i can hear the pump very loud working :(
                    It is the loudest part in the system!
                    In the Cam software i use the silence profile, but the pump works at this profile still at about 2050 rpm...
                    Maybe you could reduce it to 1600rpm or something or at least in Individual mode less speed?

                    Hope the function could be added!
                    Or can i change it manually in a reg file?

                    Thank you!

                    • Optional fan spinup at startup

                      At startup, CAM spins up all fans to 100%. I understand this is to ensure that some fans need this to start working, but not all of them. Also I may have set them to 80% anyway, so spinning them up fully is not necessery.

                      Suggestion: make it possible to disable initial spinup on a per-fan basis

                        • Let us be able to pick Be Quiet Dark Rock Pro 3 and Noctua DH15 coolers. Also, wider selection of mobos and gpu, and custom NZXT case art.

                          More CPU air coolers selection would be nice like Dark rock pro series and Noctua air coolers in black. Moreover, a wider selection of upper medium tier to high tier motherboards and graphics cards from Asus, MSI, EVGA and Gigabyte would be nice. Lastly, more options to build custom cases with artwork but not exceeding over $75 would be nice.

                                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.

                              • Please make us a favor.

                                Please, make NZXT Kraken possible to use without this CAM driver. I know CAM has many interesting things, but I really don't need it and the only reason to load is because the Kraken fan color is very intrusive without the use (once customized) of CAM.

                                The main problem of CAM is the real pain that is to wait the loading/logging when it starts.

                                    Please let us know what you are trying to do, so we can try to help you. Some settings, like audio, can not be controlled independently on some hardware from a single hue+, and some can. So what settings are you trying to activate, so we can verify.

                                    When the program was launched, all applications and games disappeared! When the computer was restarted, the motherboard did not start! Do something about it! I can not set the fucking backlight!

                                        • Compatibility with aorus gigabyte SDK + Asus aura sdk + SteelSeries engine 3 + Msi + Evga

                                          In order for the nzxt product to be configured by other applications not only because of the cam because there is not a lot of variations and the permission for the synchronization would allow more people to buy acorate this product
