So I'm waiting for my STRIX Z390-F mobo to arrive and was looking into the rgb side of it. Id like to have a couple strips and some rgb fans all linked to aura but don't really want to spend £100 on the rog terminal. Overpriced in my opinion. Was wondering if anyone could link me some other good kits that I can plug into the motherboard and then add fans and rgb strips as I please? Thanks

According to the Asus page for that MB it has 2 Adressable (3 pin) RGB headers on it.
Look on Page 1-23 of the Users manual for more info.
So you just need to connnect the strips and fans to those then install Aura to control them.
Phanteks and Others make some RGB strip kits that are reasonably priced.

Like these strips:

Or

Or this kit that comes with a Hub/Controler:

Awesome thanks so would it be easier if I got a led strip controller and a separate fan controller? So one port does the strips and one does the fans? Or would a kit like this work?

That kit you linked should work well.
You can connect them directly to the headers without using a hub.
Or use that hub/controller included in that kit.

I have 2 strips and 1 fan connected to each of the headers on my MB (mine are 4 pin non-addressable though) and they work very well with Aura.
IIRC, I can have up to 4 strips or 4 fans connected to each of my headers but you will need to check your Manual to see what the limits are for your MB.
