  1. Hey everyone,
    TLDR: Fix for coil whine, or is there a problem with fan?

    So I unboxed my new 14 inch 2017 razerblade the other day, and everything seemed to work great! After reading all the reviews I was worried about quality control and having a defective product. But I've been noticing a high pitched buzzing sound coming from the laptop. It's pretty quiet but it does shoot up under load and god does it get annoying. I ordered my razerblade internationally, so shipping it back to razer would be extremely inconvenient. Does anyone know of any coil whine issues with the blade and any fixes through BIOS updates or something? I've read someone had the same issue but it was a loose screw near the fan. Are there any fixes for this?

    I would try the Razer Live chat. Let them try to trouble shoot it for you. See where that takes you and worry about the shipping later if it comes to that point. Or alternatively you can hope someone else replies here.

    Many can alleviate the problem by selecting the power saver ''power plan'' of windows 10.
