High pitched whine on CTRL?

more_vert
Recently I've noticed a high pitched whine coming from my Drop CTRL if I have the LEDs turned on at all. It's quiet but clearly noticeable and is driving me crazy. I had assumed it was a USB issue so I tried both ports on the CTRL but no change. I tried different ports on my PC but no change. I was using a Custom cable so went and tried the USB cable that came with the keyboard but the whine was still there. Anyone else have this issue?

I think it's a common issue with Drop's PCBs. Drove me crazy too. Ended up just giving the board to a friend.

Yeah I've been reading up and seeing a lot of people having the same issue. Was thinking about buying a new PCB but until they update it and fix the issues that are still ongoing I'm not gonna shell out the cash. Bummer

Seeing other people have had this issue before. Gotta be some power/USB issue. Doesn't look like there is any solution though https://drop.com/talk/55190/ctrl-making-weird-high-pitched-noise-when-lights-are-on?utm_source=linkshare&referer=32HPBF
