Mar 19, 2019, Los Angeles, CA – NZXT, a leading developer of software-powered hardware solutions for PC gaming, today announces the HUE 2 Ambient RGB Lighting Kit V2, powered by CAM. The updated version of the HUE 2 RGB Ambient Kit brings product improvements that make installation easier and help ensures that the included LED strips will be securely attached to your monitor. In addition, CAM provides users with numerous lighting modes including an ambient lighting mode that reacts to the images on your screen. The HUE 2 ecosystem delivers the broadest line of RGB lighting accessories for PC Builders with over 10 different accessories such as the HUE 2 RGB lighting kit, underglow kit, AER RGB 2 fans, and cable combs.
HUE 2 Ambient RGB Kit V2 New Features:
● Stronger Adhesive: Upgraded the 3M LED strip adhesive backing tape to be thicker and stickier. It is more compatible with the different surfaces and textures of monitors on the market.
● L-Shape Corner Connector: For easier setup, we replaced the 150mm corner connectors to an L-shape corner connector for the top left and bottom right of your monitor.
● Alcohol Wipes: As your monitor may be dusty or dirty, we added alcohol-based cleaning wipes so you can clean the back of the monitor before adhering the LED strips.
Available in two configurations, one for 21” to 25”/34”-35” UltraWide monitors and one for 26” to 32” monitors, the HUE 2 RGB Ambient Lighting Kit adds gorgeous lighting to your gaming PC and provides a more immersive in-game experience* by projecting the colors from the edges of your display to your walls.
● HUE 2 RGB Ambient Lighting controller
● Faster microprocessor enables incredibly smooth lighting effects and virtually instantaneous response changes to colors on the screen in ambient mode
● Multiple LED strips in various lengths, along with easy-to-follow configuration and installation instructions for various monitor sizes and aspect ratios
● AC power adapter
● All necessary cables
● Compatible with all HUE 2 accessories and CAM lighting modes
* Ambient lighting modes are available only with the HUE 2 Ambient Lighting controller and require the use of CAM as a registered user, including acceptance of the then-current NZXT Terms of Service.

One of the key innovations in the new HUE 2 family is the addition of a microcontroller to every single RGB accessory. This innovative, patent-pending feature allows each HUE 2 component to identify its specific LED configuration, breaking the limits faced by existing RGB components available today.
In addition to the different LED counts and unique accessories in the HUE 2 product line, the new LED strip lengths in 200mm, with 6 LEDs, and 250mm, with 8 LEDs, offer higher flexibility for different PC form factors.
Known for their distinctive RGB ring, our Aer RGB fans have been updated with a new microcontroller and full HUE 2 compatibility, allowing the new Aer RGB 2 fans to be mixed with other HUE 2 accessories on the same channel.
● Uniquely shaped RGB light guide provides bright, even light dispersion
● Custom-engineered winglet-tip blades deliver high airflow with reduced fan noise
● Precisely control fan speeds using pulse-width modulation (PWM)
● Available in 120mm and 140mm sizes
The easy-to-install HUE 2 Underglow accessory incorporates a diffuser to provide a softer, more even glow under your case, and is compatible with all HUE 2 lighting modes. Available in two models, one for ATX and EATX cases and the other for mATX and mini-ITX cases.
● Two custom-designed HUE 2 Underglow strips with diffuser
● PCI pass-through bracket to make installation easier
● All necessary cables
Nothing finishes off a fully-custom PC build like braided PSU cables—except braided PSU cables with RGB lighting. This new HUE 2 accessory adds RGB lighting to cable combs for the 24-, 4+4- and 6+2-pin PSU cables.
● Supports 3mm diameter braided PSU cables
● Includes two 24-pin (motherboard), two 4+4-pin (CPU), and two 6+2 (GPU) cable combs
