NZXT CAM Software
After downloading and installing the CAM software, this is what you see first. Here, you can either create an account, login via social media, or continue as a guest. Guest Mode is fully functional, so account creation is your call to make.
After using the guest account to log in, we found CAM does a scan of the PC and delivers the system information for you to see. If the parts shown here do not reflect what is in the PC, stop, uninstall, and try it again, as there is something wrong. Clicking on "let's dive in" takes you on a short tutorial around CAM.
The dashboard offers a ton of information useful to those who care to pay attention. CPU temperature, CPU load, VGA temperature, VGA load, fan speed, pump speed, even the amount of C: in use is here. This is also where you start from and using the tabs at the top, you can jump around the menu system.
The advanced tab takes you to graph interface for the CPU, GPU, motherboard, RAM, HDD, and net usage. Not only does it cover usage amounts, but there are charts for temperature as well, and we see that the Kraken information stays in place through the windows.
The tuning tab allows us to mess with how the Kraken X42 reacts to what the CPU is doing. Currently, the fan curve is what is displayed for Silent Mode, but by clicking the "edit fans" buttons, we can address the fan curve and also adjust how we want the pump to react.
The lighting controls are found in the tuning tab too, and is where you can turn off LED sections, as well as using any of the presets. The presets are self-explanatory, and you can also use fixed color mode, but you can also have the LEDs react to temperatures under the smart tab, and by sound using the audio tab.
