Windows 7: NZXT Kraken CPU Header 'blinking'

NZXT Kraken CPU Header 'blinking'

I installed everything just fine and initially, I could view my CPU temps in the Kraken Software.
After making a few case adjustments, the logo on the CPU header blinks now.
And I can no longer see my CPU temps.

What may have caused this? Is there a way to fix this? DO I need to reseat the CPU Header?

Did you plug it in the correct CPU fan pin ?

That is a possible cause

Yes, I did. It's a 3 pin connector and I plugged it into the 4 pin header.

Check the usb cable and header connection as this is how the pump, fan speed and temp. sensor talks to the software.

I figured it out! Reseated the CPU header, repaired the software and now everything's in tip top shape!

Thanks, guys!
