RGB Sync with case, GPU, and motherboard

Hi, I'm planning a build, and would like to be able to sync RGB's with the motherboard, GPU, and case fans using the RGB controller implemented by a button on the case, such as the Cooler Master H500M. I know I can use a hub and easily control the case fans, but RGB motherboards and GPUs generally use software for this. Is this possible to do, with or without modding? I don't want to use software to control these because most RGB control software is unavailable on linux.

As far as I know you are going to have to use the software to control the RGB on a motherboard and GPU. With the GPU, you maybe able to unplug the RGB from the GPU and plug it into a control, but that is going to depend on the individual GPU.

Thank you, is it possible to find out whether this is possible without physically disassembling the GPU? I'm planning to get a Gigabyte Aorus Waterforce WB 2080 super and I want to know whether this is possible.

You would have to try and find a tear down video for it to see how the RGB is connected....and then figure out if you can rig a connector and if the control would work.

For all that work downloading the software is far less trouble.
