I think that's a version of what I need, but i need to find something like that that goes from small male to big male. Tysm! I finally know what I'm looking for now.

Seen the bottom link yet ?

I've been trying to upgrade the fans on my gpu's built-in aio cooler and I've hit a snag, the 4 pin headers on the 3 way built-in splitter that power the stock fans are of a slightly smaller and maybe proprietary size, not only that, but the leads coming from the gpu wiring are female which means I would need some kind of male/male 4 pin extension connecter that had the smaller size on one end and the regular size on the other. Since I might be SOL on getting my gpu's built in cooling system to command all of its related fans through a fan hub using the pwm directly from my gpu's system, what other ways can I use to just as reliably tie my gpu temps to my gpu's fans? Since the gpu's built in splitter leads won't be connected to anything if I use an alternate solution, will I start getting system errors? This is the GPU system I've been working with https://pcpartpicker.com/product/mYYmP6/gigabyte-geforce-rtx-3090-ti-24-gb-aorus-xtreme-waterforce-video-card-gv-n309taorusx-w-24gd. Gigabyte doesn't even have this listed on their online support form and it's been impossible for me to get anyone from their tech support on the phone so far, so not expecting any help from them.

It's better if you take a pic of the said connector first

Soo standard extension?
https://www.newegg.com/p/1W7-005X-000C2

that's exactly what i already have and it doesn't work, the pins on the small female header are way too close together to fit in a standard 4 pin extension cable, the male end on the stock fans is also a lot more tiny and compact

Ahh, the pic isn't too clear on the smaller one since its taken from the front side.

Probably something like this then

Soo, that's what you need?
If so.
That's a JST-PH 4pin male (The small one), to KK254 female.

Care about the cable used for it, you need cable big enough to handle the amount of current your fans will use.

it's not even handling power current, it's just carrying a pwm signal to a hub
