Question Need help with fan header for case fans

Mar 26, 2020

Ryzen 5 3600 (Hyper 212)

rtx 2070 super

G.SKILL Ripjaws V Series 16GB


EVGA 750 watts BQ semi modular

Corsair 110r (case)

2 Touchaqua Notos intake fans 120mm

2 exhaust fans (1 120 mm fan(unnamed came with case) & 1 140mm kingwin fan)

Right now in my build I am using two splitters, (https://www.amazon.com/Splitter-Molex-headers-CONNECT-MULTIPLE/dp/B009D3HV1Q this splitter) for my two intakes that is connected through molex for power and then connected to the fan header. The other splitter I do not know the name of but is basically the same as the other but only has two connecters that are for 3 pin fans. Now I bought the 5 pack of the Notos 120 DRGB (https://www.amazon.com/Bitspower-Computer-Cooling-Airflow-Desktop/dp/B0843JNCXN/ref=sr_1_1?dchild=1&keywords=Notos+120+DRGB&qid=1589558488&s=electronics&sr=1-1&th=1) but only have two installed, I tried installing three of the Notos fans to the intake splitter but for some reason the last one did not spin even though it was connected to molex for the power and only to the mobo for fan control, before the Notos fans I had three kingwin fans (https://www.amazon.com/Kingwin-CF-012LB-Efficient-Excellent-Ventilation/dp/B002YFP8BK) connected to the splitter and all three spun. I want to install all five this time and remove the kingwin fans and old splitters, but I have to use the included pwm hub as my mobo only has two fan headers, which is my question. If I use the included hub (https://www.amazon.com/Bitspower-Touchaqua-PWM-Fan-Multi-Function/dp/B085BWVBZS/ref=sr_1_2?dchild=1&keywords=fan+hub+bitspower&qid=1589558628&s=electronics&sr=1-2) and connect it to my fan header for fan control and then to SATA for power do I risk destroying my mobo and/or psu. Should I install four to the hub and one to other fan header to draw less power. Also could I do the same for RGB hub (https://www.amazon.com/Bitspower-Touchaqua-Digital-Function-Controller/dp/B07N8JT3GQ) with SATA for power and the header for control or would this also cause a problem. Any help is appreciated.
