Is this worthy of claiming RMA with Frontosa

I have 5 white CORSAIR ML fans, 1x 120mm, 4x140mm.

When I purchased them last year around April they all were beautifully lit up with the White Leds, I've noticed from looking at old pics/video they are at least half as bright as they used to be. The fans seem to be working perfectly fine and yes I know PWM vs DC control effects the lights brightness. When I switch them to DC it's super dim.

After giving them all a proper clean today, suspecting dust causing the issue. they all still remain lack lustre.

Normally I would just go out and buy new fans but given the price of each around R400 and a 5 year warranty. Would this be something worth claiming?

Was adviced by frontosa Durban the RMA process for these fans take 7-21 days. :oops:

Going to send them 2 for now and hopefully the others can be expedited since it's exactly the same fault across all fans.
