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! :)

Nzxt pp-800 psu
I have an NZXT PP-800 It's been fine for two years now, but if I ever want to say do a Crossfire with it I want to make sure it won't like explode on me. I say this because of threads I've seen on other forums where the OP apparently had their PSU burst into sparks and ruin their systems.
