RGB fan help.

So my case (Bitfenix Enso) has a rgb hub. I can connect 1 fan and 2 rgb strips in there.

 

I'm planning to get 1 more rgb fan that needs to connect to there but the hub has only 1 slot for the fan.

Can I just strip the cable of the connected one and cut and strip the new one and combine them together? (this is a Cable for rgb lighting if it's not clear)

 

Fan: Bitfenix Spectre RGB 120mm fan

I'm pretty sure you can just get a fan splitter and use that, as long as the combined voltage doesn't exceed the voltage thats being put out by the one header.

This splitter that you showed me is for splitting the POWER Cable from the fan. I need to split the cable that gives power to the leds

YES you can cut and split but the 2 fans will just mirror image each other for RGB effects.  I would think load wise you should be ok.

 

I do this a lot with the corsair rgb strips and fans.. Normally i try to make a connector that will work but these look like a proprietary type connector.
