RGB fans for server enclosure


I have this rack mount enclosure: https://a.co/d/frpr6je and I would like to mount two, 120mm RGB fans in the top of it. It only houses a 24-port managed ethernet switch, but it is in the eSports room for the high school team I coach and we would like to add the RGB fans for some decoration to match the room.

My question is if there are any RGB fans that can be connected to this AC adapter for adjustable speed: https://a.co/d/cdJKFhD and still have a remote for changing the RGB lighting effects. There is no device in the enclosure to connect a cable to a 5v/3-pin or 12v/4-pin header like on a motherboard, so the fans would need to be entirely self contained for the RGB functionality, including powering that functionality. I'm not opposed to spending a little money (under $15) on something small to provide power/connectivity to the RGB "system" of the fans, but putting a power supply (even an SFX one) in the enclosure seems a bit ridiculous just to get, for example, a SATA power connector so I can connect that to one of the RGB/PWM hubs that come with some RGB fan multi-packs. Ideally, I'd like to spend no more than $35 on everything including the fans and anything needed to get the RGB working. I already have the AC adapter for power/speed control.
