how much are you rgb led? if you use a 12v you will need a supply that
can supply 5 amps Power = voltage * current

I think your best bet would be a small power supply for a computer or
maybe a laptop power cord.  I have a bunch of power cords I can look
in my basemen see if any is good enough

I know I can pull this off with a standard ATX power supply, but does anyone have suggestions for something more compact?
