[SOLVED] LED light strips question/s

Hi,
I hope I'm in the right section.
I am currently building a new computer/gaming desk for myself.
It is a wooden table 6 ft by 2ft with a resin pour.
The resin is poured on a 1/4" plexiglass base and beneath that is the wooden base with LED lighting.
So the main part of the table is backlit from within the table.

I have tested regular RGB LED light strips with my setup and it has turned out way better than I thought.

What I want to do is be able to connect this table to my Gaming PC rig which is also setup with RGB lighting and SYNC my rigs lighting, keyboard and mouse with the RGB lighting in my table.

So I guess my questions are as follows
Is there a hub or controller available that I can use which is connected to my PC to control my table lights, using Aura Sync software that came with my Asus Rog Strix x570-e Motherboard.
I would prefer not to use my computer power supply and plug these lights straight into the mains.
However I am using a 1000 wat PSU

I have also purchased a Whirlwind Element V2 keyboard with the specialized LightCaps.

Any Help greatly appreciated.

Without really knowing all the details I would be leery of using a second power supply via the mains for the table lights.

RGB's should not demand that much power and I would expect that a 1000 watt computer PSU as their power source would satisfy the table's additional power demands.

Two power sources, as being considered is in my mind a problem waiting to happen.

You are likely to set up a loop and some problem or accident could send current going who knows where.

Maybe not so much of a risk to people but the electronics involved may suffer.

Look at your preferences in terms of simplicity and safety.

Just a thought......
