Hey everyone,

Built a new rig today, the motherboard being the Aorus Z390 Pro Wifi, which is a Mini ITX board. The issue that I'm having is that the board only has three fan headers, a CPU fan header, and two case fan headers. The cooler I'm using is the Kraken M22, which requires a fan header input for the radiator, and a USB 2.0 input on the motherboard for RGB. When I launched NZXT's software the device registers under the "lighting" tab (I'm assuming this means the USB header is working) but the "cooling" tab shows no inputs, even while the radiator is plugged in correctly to the CPU fan header. After researching online a bit, it seems like I might be out of luck because I don't have a dedicated "aio pump" header or something similar. Any ideas? I've seen people use this motherboard with NZXT coolers before so there has to be a way, I just can't figure it out. Thanks!

Show us a screenshot of the nzxt's software, we need to know what version that is.
Also I think this might explain how to hook it up correctly read what frank has to say about it.

From what I understand from other people with nzxt coolers.
The cam software will control it, the motherboard will not.

It should display the tempatures for the cpu and rpm speed of the fans but not allow you to modify it there.
I highly suggest you reach out to nzxt technicians.

if you need a part or need them to correctly explain how to work the cooler and hook it correctly.
