    Are your fans addressable RGB ? If they are addressable then you use 5v RGB Splitter.. XSPC make one of those too. In this case as I understand it, you have RGB fans with one cable standard 4pin FAN Connecter and 1 cable with RGB connectivity. They are 2 different things with 2 different circuits. They should be treated completely differently and individually.

    The 4 pin fan cable will plug into your mother board no issue. The 4 pin RGB can be one of 2 types of RGB. it might have a 4 pin connector with a blocking key only allowing 3 of the 4 pins to be used. That is 5V Addressable RGB OR it has 4 pins all available for the RGB connection.. 12V RGB. 5 or 12v RGB has to be determined in this case to use the correct splitter.

    Are there 3 wires or 4 wires used on those pins for RGB? Can you tell? Saying it only uses pins 1 and 4 doesn't sound like normal RGB connector. If it is anything other than what I described above, then they were designed for a proprietary connections like in the case of Corsair Fans. Corsair uses normal RGB technology BUT they use a different connector so they can keep you buying their supporting hardware such as commander pro. Proprietary products for common themes should go the way of the DO DO bird. That kind of thinking will ultimately kill the company. if there are 2 wires only connected then it was designed for supporting proprietary products to be used in it's connection. What brand of fan do you have ? I should of asked that from the beginning ?

    As you can see these 4 pin plugs look the same but are different. the 5v plug has 3 wires while the 12v plug has 4 wires.

    On this picture it shows a 5v RGB cable as you can tell it has 3 wires but this one shows the blocking key. Most new cables have a blocking key for the 5v RGB cable so you don't mistakenly put it into the 12V bus potentially blowing things up.
