After checking the motherboard's specs - the CPU FAN1 and CHA FAN2 headers support a max of 1A(amp) of power, and the CHA FAN1/WP is 2A.
A single Deepcool fan is rated at 0.23A: http://www.deepcool.com/product/dcoolingaccessory/2017-07/12_6835.shtml
You could daisy-chain up to 4 fans on a single 1A header, and to 8 on the 2A one, if you wish.

Options
-2 Y-splitters
-1 3-fan splitter
-1 4-fan splitter

Then again, the power rating on the included case fans also matter.

Alright, sorry for the late replying, but actually I wanted to buy the RF 120R (red), pcpartpicker does not have it, so I can't send the link. So I heard that the RF 120R draws 0.17-19A. should I still buy more fan splitters? Because it draws WAY less power than the RGB version

Are you purposefully trying to daisy chain 4-5 fans to one header? Otherwise, your options are no different from the previous RGB model.
