NZXT CAM Software
After downloading and installing the CAM software, we were greeted with a small window that prompts us to create an account to use with the cloud control, but we skipped that without creating one for now, so we can get on with the software. When it opens, there is a short tutorial where NZXT explains things like where to control the fan speeds with the plus and minus, and that you can see both CPU and GPU temperatures, and even the total wattage being drawn on the Grid+.
Clicking "Next" at the bottom takes us to the right side window, where information on each channel is available with RPM and power draw displayed in two columns.
The final bit of the tutorial shows the left pane of this window, and shows us that you have options for automatic controls via the Silent and Performance modes, and even with a custom profile to tinker with. You can also switch to manual mode, and adjust the presets as well as the custom profile.
For testing, we hooked up a few random fans to see what shakes from the Grid+. As you can see, we also have a Kraken connected to this software, which is something to keep in mind for CPU cooler upgrades in your future. Across the CAM software, you can see that I have set the fan speed to 100%, and our multi-meter was reading 11.96V on average across all six channels. When the fans are turned off, the meter showed us that no power at all is sent through them.
In the middle, we see the CPU temperature, an indication that we are in performance mode, and that we are using only 5.8W with three fans attached. On the right, you can find information on the trio of fans currently connected. All of which are very handy to have on screen, and are adjustable with just a click or three, without reaching for the chassis.
