    I was actually thinking of the RGB controllers on current motherboards and graphics cards. It just happened that I wrote about it here because this (very expensive) sound card has such feature.

    Yes, (USB?) fan controller would be simpler. Maybe it's my DIY mindset which thinks that this is cooler. Happy hacking!

Of course the fans require some range of PWM frequency and I don't know what those light controllers use but they could be flexible enough to allow adjusting them to the correct range. Obviously you need to supply power to the fans from elsewhere but that can be taken from PSU directly.

    Props to the developers who put in the effort to support creative labs garbage. It probably wouldn't take much effort to develop a driver which competes favourably with the official ones

    Phoronix: The Next Linux Kernel To Support Creative Sound BlasterX AE-5 Sound Cards

    The next major Linux kernel cycle whether it is called Linux 4.20 or ends up being called Linux 5.0 as expected is now slated to carry support for the high-end Creative Labs' Sound BlasterX AE-5 sound card...
