Once the CAM software is downloaded and installed, this is the first window you see. It is where NZXT wants you to log into an account, even using Facebook or Google credentials for easy setup. It is done to allow users to keep saved settings in the cloud as well as on the PC.
If you choose to click on sign in as a guest, another window pops up to explain why you should opt to use an account. If you still do not wish to use an account, there is an option at the bottom to continue in offline mode. You will get all the same controls, just no cloud capabilities.
Once passed all of that, we now are into the CAM software. The tabs at the top show we are in the Dashboard mode, and we see everything from CPU and GPU temps, what the fan on channel one is doing. At the bottom, you can even get graphs on just about anything including internet usage and FPS.
From the dashboard, you have very limited options as to what you can do with the fans. We swapped to fan four with the drop down box to the right. On the left, you can use Manual mode, Silent Mode, or Performance mode, but to use Manual, you first need to set that profile.
Since the system specs and the FPS are irrelevant to this product, we passed them by as we opened the GRID+ V2 tab now. Here you can see each of the six channels. To each, you can rename them so things that reference where they are, and it shows what mode they are in and the current RPM, percentage, and power draw it has. Also, the channels that are connected are blue where unused ones remain greyed out.
If you click on the Change Fan Modes button in the last window, above is what you will see. Selecting a fan channel, we then move down to the Fan Mode. There you can select manual, which is a set percentage of speed from 20 to 100%, a Silent fan curve, a Performance fan curve. Or in the Custom Profile section, you can create and save a fan curve you want it to follow.
Selecting the New Custom Profile option, a lot of the window remains the same. To the right at the bottom, we now have a box that offers 13 points of control to set a new custom fan curve. All you do is click on an orange dot and drag it where you need it and follow your way up the curve with the rest of them. Be sure to apply any changes and save any fan curves you may want to keep before closing the CAM software.
