Viper Ultimate Coil whine & lights when charging

When I first got my Viper Ultimate, I didn't notice any coil whine, but that was a good time ago now, and I can definitely hear the high pitched squeal that is unmistakably coil whine now. I heard it worst when it was charging, and that also coincided with the RGB lights not coming on to show charge level.

Now, I know coil whine itself is pretty normal and nothing to be worried about, it happens. Quality control, yada yada, we all know the drill.

BUT with that coil whine being a new thing, *and* the lights not coming on any more to show charge level (it still charges, can see that in Synapse)... is this a sign it's dying?

Possibly. Is it still under warranty?

No, coils tends to whine, it’s not dying.

If you still have warranty, then you can submit a case with Razer Support: https://mysupport.razer.com/app/warranty-support/
