NZXT Hue+ white settings

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,
I have a NZXT Hue+, but the white setting looks blue. To make it look more white, I set the slider between "white and red" and it is a decent white in person but still not as white as I'd like it to be. The major problem is that the camera picks it up pink, even though in reality its much closer to white. I've seen a few people with the Hue+ that have really nice white lights, so I was wondering how they did it. If you have a Hue+ and run it white, can you please share a screenshot of your settings? Thanks.
Below you can see my settings and how the camera picks it up, remember in reality its pretty white. Also it's a bit towards black because as you can see I got 4 strips and I don't want it to be too white. Thanks.

Thanks, but I gave up on the Hue+ and ordered 2 Phobya white strips.

@XCalinX
Do you have pictures with the new led strips? How does the white look to you with them?

I have the Hue+ as well as the Grid+ in my Define S, and the LED's on the Hue+ are purely white when set to white. Perhaps there is a problem with one of the following.

Your LED strip. Pretty common.

The firmware version of your HUE+. Some firmware versions were known to display incorrect colors or color settings.

The Hue+ unit itself. Not that common, but definitely not unheard of.

NZXT is at least half decent at getting back to folks on problems with their hardware. Might be worth giving them a shout.

Well I gave up on the Hue+ and put in some standard LED strips but maybe I will put it in my secondary rig and try to update the firmware.
