Hi all,

Happy new year,

 

Got a problem with my Masterkey pro S i bought 3 weeks ago.

 

When I choose a program with a lot of colors at the same time, I hear a sort of whistling in my ears (I am using CM Storm Resonar).

Exemple : if there is a wave from no color to full white color (like a heartbeat), when all the keyboard is white I can ear a whistle in my ears, then it stops when the color is OFF, and start again when the keyboard is full colors).

 

It's almost impossible to take a program with full colors...

 

Thank you for your help...

I think you might be hearing the PWM sounds. Someone else made a similar thread as you here:

so it might be the design of the RGB LED colors being altered through PWM.

I also have the high pitched noise, mostly with solid colors. Some do make more noise than others though.

Try a solid color like 220/220/220. That makes the most noise on my keyboard. I can hear it from 2 feet away :?

 

It seem like since they switched the forums here, support doesn't reply anymore....

It must be possible that some technician from CM can take the Masterkeys Pro Series keyboard, go into a quiet room, set the color to 220/220/220 and take is ear next to the F12 to see if there is a loud buzzing sound. If you set it to 220/220/220 you wouldn't even need to go that near since the buzzing is so loud that you hear it from a few feet away.

 

You basically can not use any colors above 120 unless it is 255 since there will always be a buzzing sound. Only full colors like 0/255/255 are quiet.

 

Please CM, we deserve and answer!
