Thanks for the reply.

So I thought this based on your information.
The Corsair bars are 30cm long and have only 10 LEDs, so a 1mt bar should consist of about 30 LEDs.

The bars exist from 1 to 5 meters.
For the whole project I should get to a maximum of 3m and making a mathematical calculation the bar request 1.5A per meter, so with 4.5A I should stay in it (eventually I would restrict it to 2m or cascade another Commander).

In addition to the Commander (which also runs fans, temperatures and more), I could try something cheaper than possibly in the future to match a Commander PRO? Maybe the Lighting Node Pro?
