:) Great CPU cooler - thanks for the review Aaron.

What's the relationship of NZXT and Cryorig?

Lol fastest review ever. I think they just designed a product to interface with their software. Business relationships as usual is my guess.

Interesting - guess more marketing opportunities to get the brand out.

Thanks guys!

Yeah I think NZXT and Cryorig have a pretty neutral relationship, looks like it's just two businesses who are better in their area compared to the counterpart. I would like to see a less-heavy one, though the lighting solution from NZXT (ignoring the other issues of CAM) is pretty thorough.

would you say cam is better than other programs?

The CAM software combines the system monitoring aspect with its LED lighting. If you were to just get it for lighting, then I would agree with my previous statement of it being heavy. As for the software itself, besides the fact it requires the computer to always be online to work, the layout and refinement is there. There are still some hiccups, but it's not very noticeable.

Otherwise, it comes down to what products you are invested in. If it is all NZXT HUE and related products, you have a case LED lighting system offering things like system information synchronizing with lighting, per LED customization (at least on the strips), or accurate audio synchronization, all in one package.

The problem is that software from motherboard manufacturers like ASUS, MSI, or Gigabyte also have these sort of effects and monitoring, while also offering integration with third party RGB products in both hardware and peripherals. This sort of shuts the door on NZXT and their ecosystem as a whole. I'd be interested to see what NZXT plans to do to counter this, because they will have to either adapt some way. 

Thus, to answer your question: CAM on its own is very capable and is mostly stable, but I have a feeling a wider integration is going to matter more. I think more people would want to just install a single application to do this, which makes NZXT's solution less appealing.

It'll be nice if there's a common standard with a common API to make everything compatible with each other.

It’s bad when Companies fight for the Standard and you end up with 5 programs doing the same thing.
