    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.

    Is it available some adapter for converting 12V to 5V RGB LEDs...
    Example if motherboard have only 12V RGB Connector to connect 5V RGB LED.

    ASUS I think have 5V RGB LED Strips.

    You cannot convert 12V led's to 5V led's. If you want to run a bunch of LED's I would suggest a Corsair lighting node pro and a Corsair commander pro. You can add a lot of LED's and Fans with those combos.

    Your headers will only support so many LED's and will burn up if you do to many. However you can use external power for the LED's and still control them with your Comander pro. I soldered the +5V and ground on the led strip to Molex connector. That plugs right into a psu molex. Then the data and ground (so now you have 2 wires on the ground) went directly to the commander pro or lighting node pro. (I used both)

    I decided against using Asus Aura software since there are too many complaints about it. Hope they get that fixed.

    This might be a little late but might still help someone out in the Future. This Corsair web page will show you how to do RGB fans, RGB memory, RGB led strips, RGB AIO Water Cooling, all controlled using Corsair Commander Pro, Lighting Node Pro and the RGB Fan Hub. You also need Corsair Link or Corsair I-Cue software. Zotty's CORSAIR RGB Hardware and iCUE Eco-System FAQ
