After installing CAM, signing in as a guest, and taking a short tutorial, this is what you see first. Everything you want to know about temperatures and usage can be found in this one window, but it gets much deeper the further into CAM you get. If you want to adjust the Kraken X52, you can change the fan mode or use the gear icon to jump to settings for it or use the tabs at the top.

Under tuning, we see the Kraken X52 fan profile for Silent Mode. This is the same curve we saw in the X42, and even the fan speed percentage and coolant temperature are shown. Either by selecting fan or pump or by clicking on the edit fans button, you can change the settings for the fans and the pump.

In the lighting tab, you can shut off the logo LED or shut off the ring around it, or leave them as is and enjoy the LED light show.

If you were to click on the edit setting button on the last window, this is the menu that pops up. This is where you can select any of the modes, static lighting, custom colors, or make the lights change from temperatures or an audio source.
