Remove that fans ramp up to 100% when nzxt is not active

When my computer boots the fans ramp up to 100%, they slow down when I turn on nzxt cam. I turned on in the settings that nzxt cam turns on automatically but sometimes it takes too long or it doesnt even want to turn on.

    My issue is similar. When my pc boots my fans spin up, My Cam loads and my fans stop spinning. I can still adjust lighting but cannot adjust the speeds.

    Same issue here. Turn computer on fans 100% until NZXT cam is on and goes all nice and quiet. Occasionally NZXT cam doesn't run on boot.

    To be fair, it's a good failsafe that the fans ramp up to 100% when CAM is not active, I can see why NZXT programmed them that way. I have had multiple situations where CAM cannot detect my aios or randomly disconnects with them while i'm using my pc, and it sucks to be sure, but it would be unsafe if that happened and the fans remained at their current low speeds considering that CAM wouldn't be monitoring temps in that specific situation. It also helps in troubleshoot scenarios, there have been plenty of times where I had the PC on to test my GPU or other components during the bootup sequence, or even to install windows 10, or even sitting in the bios, and obviously CAM isn't isn't running in those instances so we need the fans to be at 100% to ensure no meltdowns happen lol.

    Totally agree and this seems to only happen with the Smart Device V1 in my experience. Sometimes the fans suddenly ramping up to 100% surprises one during the evening or any quiet time of the day. I actually submitted a support ticket for this but no feedback yet.
