I am building a new desktop PC. I bought a case with no fans. So I am buying 6 thermaltake rgb fans, thermaltake aircooler with rgb fan and the case have an rgb lighting too. Do I need a RGB controller to synchronize all lighting.

Motherboard : MSI MPG B550 Gaming Plus(have mystic lighting option)
RAM : G.Skill Trident RGB
Case : Deepcool MATREXX 55 V3 ADD-RGB Middle Tower Computer Case

If yes I am thinking of buying phanteks rgb controller ( http://www.phanteks.com/PH-CTHUB_DRGB.html )

What do you think?
 
The "Rainbow" 3-pin headers are Addressable RGB (ARGB) connectors.
It looks like you're installing more than 8 lighting units and you only have two ARGB connectors and one RGB connector...so you need either splitters or a controller.
A controller has additional power (SATA) to run several units.
I suggest you make sure that all the lighting units are ARGB and compatible with MSI Mystic lighting.

If you want less cables on your case...then take a look at Lian Li RGB fans
