Default RGB for illuminating desktop?

Would this work for the lighting on a haf X?

Amazon.com: Flexible Strip Color Changing RGB Ribbon 15 SMD LED 12v (0.5m) 20 Inches, 2033rgb: Home Improvement

and would I need this remote to change the color scheme and such or with a little software could I manage it all directly from my desktop?


If I am way off base here and there is another way to get all color led lighting to your desktop then someone please point me towards it.

From what I see though all those ones you gave me are one color only. It just seems silly that in this day and age I wold be limited to having one color on my desktop lol!

I found this, some rgb's at the bottom

Kustom PCs LED Strips

and this.

RGB LED waterproof flexi-strip 30 LED - (1 m) ID: 285 - $16.00 : Adafruit Industries, Unique & fun DIY electronics and kits

but I am not sure how I would make it all work. power it, control is etc. gonna do some more resarch.
