I have a Gigabyte X570 Gaming X mobo that has x2 usb 2.0 header and 2 usb 3.0 header. However I have multiple rgb accessories that need a usb 2.0 header. My front panel uses x1 usb 2.0 and x1 3.0 so i have x1 2.0 left but honestly need 2-4 more to plug everything in. So my question is what is a safe way to do this without killing any components because i thought about just buying a splitter like the one linked below.

In all it will be 9 QL 120 fans, 4 led strips daisy chained together, and corsair radiator with rgb as well will that be fine? Or would it be safer for like a pcie card for the headers?
