I need 5 in my front panel, about 10 or 15 in my case (I'll possibly make a strip or something), and another 10 or 15 going out to the back of my monitor (I'll replace the cathodes). Would it be possible for me to make a some sort of control box to go in a 3.5" bay, with three sliders/knobs for the colour and a master brightness slider/knob to control these lights, maybe with a modularised system where the LED strings connect to the back of the unit through 4-pin connectors?

And connections at the back like this:



The function button in the first image would cycle between various preset colours, or even continuously fade through the spectrum, however I'm not sure if this is at all possible.
