I have a few Govee light strips laying around. These are the 3-pin addressable RGBIC strips. At the end of the strip is the 3 brass tabs used to connect to another strip.

Is it possible to connect a standard 3 pin 5V ARGB header plug to the strip... you know, the one that's 4 pins wide, but only 3 pins are there.

I have a Razer Addressable RGB Controller, so if I managed to get from the end of the light strip to a female 3-pin 5V ARGB plug that will go into the Razer controller.... could I control the strip via Razer Chroma?

I've been poking around amazon, there's a bunch of connectors and adaptors, but nothing quite exactly what I'm needing to do (maybe because it doesn't work? dunno).

Thoughts?

The end of the Govee strip, the 3 tabs are labelled. Looks like standard ARGB strip, tab 1 is 5V, tab 2 is Data, tab 3 is ground.

In theory everything should stay the same; its just going from 3 tabs to female 3 pin header plug. No voltage changes or any of that.
