Default Lian Li + 9 rgb fans

Hey guys so I desperately needed to post here to make sure I've got my facts straight before I order parts for my new PC.
I'm wanting to power and control the 9 fans and ideally I did want the corsair led strips but don't think I have enough sata ports to power everything.

My main question is, do I definitely need the commander pro for this?

My parts in question
- H150i Pro +3 ML120RGB fans that come with it
- 6 LL120RGB fans (2 packs of 3x fans with the node pro)
- Asus Prime Z390 mobo
- Lian-Li PC 011DW case
- Optional corsair led strips (lighting node pro)

I've checked Zotty's diagrams and basically think I HAVE to purchase the commander pro so that I've got enough fan headers and sata ports to power them everything.
I'm pretty sure the Z390prime only has 6 sata ports so they would all be occupied by the following:
2x rgbled controllers
1x commander pro
1x H150i Pro
1x 2TB HDD
1x 240gb SSD

So is that correct? and if so that means I can't fit the led strips right? :(

Next question sorry.
The fan headers I can only seem to count 4.
1 x CPU Fan connector(s) (1 x 4 -pin)
1 x CPU OPT Fan connector(s) (1 x 4 -pin)
2 x Chassis Fan connector(s) (2 x 4 -pin)
I wasn't sure if I can count the
1 x EXT_Fan header
1 x M.2 Fan Header?
So with the 6 LL120 fans I wouldn't have enough fan headers to power them unless I bought the commander pro right?

Honestly if someone could clear that up for me I would be over the moon thank you.
