yes it will but keep in mind that conroller can provide 72W max so you have limited lenght of strip you can attach to it

Maybe turn capslock off and the world will become a happier place.

You're not doing such a great job with that.
Your thread title, and content in its entirety is in full caps
You're written words are not remotely professional (using things like "o my" and "THERE R LIGHTS")
That is probably why he thinks this is ridiculous, and I understand why.
Perhaps you are being serious, and are asking honest questions. You just don't seem to be doing it in a serious way.

Perhaps you are the English incarnation of @michael and next up you'll ask us how to turn a PC on with a remote. Only I like michael, he was a cool guy, he didn't use caps.

Also your profile is private. This disconcerts me somewhat.

EDIT: Also, please use the edit function

Professional title would have been

"Help with LED/Case Ligthing"
or
"LED/CASE lighting questions"

This would have be professional and given the members a quick understanding of what the thread was created for.

1.5m is ok (1m is 14.4W so your strip will be about 22W) but you may want to drop to 30 leds/m or even to use smd3528 instead of 5050.
5050 are quite bright and with 60 leds/m you will get 850lm/m for white light, 30 leds/m will give you 440lm/m for white light
in my 20 sq.m. living room i have installed about 7m smd5050 30 leds/m and light is enough for every activity you may do in living room.

looks great :clap:
but...
when you can move strip away from window edge (about 1/2" - 3/4"). this will reduce visibility of the individual leds of the strip and will make it look like light radiate from the inside of your rig

edit:
and what direction blows that fan on cpu cooler

I got it set as pull,The heat sink fan. Temps run in 30tys normal usage, low 40tys gaming overclocked at all times 3.40 ghz. Yes i know ppl allways put fan in front of heatsink, but this seams to work well, Also easy cleaning.
Also had it set other way.temps are about a whole 1 degree cooler.. lol :toast::lovetpu::laugh:
