    i have 4 fans. all have two connectors one for fan header and one for rgb header to connect to the motherboard. each fan requires 0.37A . my motherboard has 4 fan headers so there is no problem to connect fans to different fan headers. but there is only one rgb header which supports 1A. i want to connect all fans' rgb connectors to motherboard's rgb header using 4-1 splitter cable.

    my question is that each fan has two connector so fan connector and rgb connector both require 0.37A?? or only fan connector require 0.37A and rgb connector require less Amperage.

    both connectors image attached.

    The maximum current a single LED needs is around 20ma and since 1A =1000ma you can run around 50 LEDs from your RGB connector, so you should be fine.
