NZXT HUE 2 Ambient RGB Lighting Kit Review

Software
NZXTs CAM software is useful for many other things aside from lighting control of your new HUE 2 Ambient RGB hub. Upon opening the software, you will be presented with a few key monitors of your hardware, such as current clock speeds, temperatures and available drive space. The colour scheme can be changed at any point.


Of course, the RGB strips party trick is the ability to mirror your screen’s output onto the wall, but if you wish, you can individually adjust the LEDs to create whichever affects you like. We found most of the colours to be bright and vibrant but orange and lime green were a faded.


Enabling the Ambient Mode is done via the Smart tab. It’s also possible to set up different zones to indicate current CPU and GPU temperatures, if they’re something you need to monitor constantly.


Finally, while playing around we found that the NZXT CAM software supports CS:GO. With this enabled, while playing, you can have the strips display information relating to health, C4 Arming and for Grenade Effect to help you work out where the splash damage came from. Currently CS:GO appears to be the only supported title but hopefully more will be added.
