Allow fan speed mapping to liquid temp

Hello, Please consider adding the option to map fan speed curves to water temp. Right now I have the option to map the pump RPM, but fans are limited to GPU or CPU core temp only. It doesnt make sense to ramp up the radiator fans based on brief CPU temp spikes if the water temp remains low. This would be a great feature and would fix one of my major complaints about the Kraken system.

Thank you for your time!

    Happy to see that controlling fan speeds via liquid temperature is functional in version 4.41.2.
    NZXT, thanks for listening.

    This is currently not possible in 4.41.2. If it's an actual feature, could someone explain how to enable it, and is it only feasible with NZXT AIOs, or can it also use temps given by any of the motherboard sensors?

    I'd like to sincerely thank the dev team for adding this feature to the CAM.

    It looks like it's possible now with NZXT CAM 4.40 Beta

    Has this been implemented? I do not have the Fan Controller, but I can change the Pump speed based on the Liquid temperature

    Same situation as Leandro. I bought the RGB & Fan Controller after reading suggestions that it would allow fan control based on liquid temperature. It does not. Pleaaase allow CAM to pass on the liquid temperature to the Fan Controller.

    I bought the NZXT RGB & Fan Controller - AC-2RGBC-B1, and I am disappointed that it is not possible to control the rotation of the fans through the temperature of the liquid. So don't waste time spending money on it.

    CAM version 4.30.2

    Hey, has this been implemented? I want to be able to use this feature, but do not want to buy the controller if it is not yet implemented

    This is such a fundamental feature! I bought a 200 euro x73 liquid cooler and a seperate NZXT fan controller and i cannot set my fan speeds to the liquid temperature using the controller. Please add settings so the fans connected to the NZXT fan controller can be set to liquid temp... Its so weird this is is not a default feature for a 200+ euro product. Especially if you even have the NZXT fan controller...

    This is such a fundamental feature.

    I get that controlling motherboard fans would require testing with a lot of different motherboards, but if your fans are designed to be plugged into the mobo then it seems ridiculous that I have to download third party sofrware which ofc can only read cpu temp.

    +1 to this, newer models on which one uses fan controller do not have this option, been waiting for 1+ years for this, not even a peep

    We just need acces to the water temp for fan curves, that is all. we don't need connectors, we don't need the 100 dollar higher priced model, just acces to info already available to the pump to be shared with fan settings in CAM.

    it´s so an easy feature to implement and a lot of ppl like this idea, but it´s not event in review or need review to maked.

    It is available in the X52, X62, X72 series, but not in the new X53, X63, X73 series.

    With the Xx2 series you can connect the fans directly to the pump and control it from there, in the Xx3 series, you have to buy the separate RGB and Fan control, but it doesn't allow liquid temperature control straight from CAM.

    Support suggested that "Already exists" mean that idea is already posted not that the feature exists.

    Well, since it is marked as already exists, it means it must be a bug that it doesn't work with my setup, so I've created a ticket for support to make it work (ticket #937362). 17 days and counting :)

    This was disappointing to learn that not even their own fancontroller can be set to use liquid temps instead of CPU/GPU, resulting in a wavy fan usage or set up for higher average temps in general. Not ideal. Seems like they reserved this for their higher priced items, which is a slap in the face to consumers.

    It is mentioned on the Xx3-product pages, but barely stressed, and it seems to be a software limit rather than hardware (if you can read temps, you could do curves for it).

    Would love to see this show up.

    Just got the fan controller to achieve exactly this, disappointed to find it cannot be done. Using the X63. Voted.

    I have the X53 and that fan output do not exist. The box only came with the USB conector for the pump and a SATA power cable and no more

    Here are screengrabs of my CAM, I have Kraken X73 which has no way to plug fans to pump controller, you have to plug them to either mobo or controller, I specifically bought NZXT controller AC-2RGBC-B1 to make sure there will be this option... and there is none!

    On screens - pump has liquid, fans do not have this option.

    So THIS IS NOT IMPLEMENTED! Check your own products NZXT!
