RGB Connector Confusion??

Okay so I wanted to add a second fan to my cooler which is a Deepcool Gammaxx GT RGB. It comes with an RF120 and mounting clips for a second one. It's set up and works well but I've got nowhere to plug the RGB cable into.

It's not a standard flat connector with 4 holes like on a 5050 strip - it has pins and looks more like what you'd plug a fan into. It's the same as the other fan which is connected to a splitter and then plugs into the motherboard via the splitter.

Trouble is. I can't seem to find any of these splitters online, or even seem to find the name of the fat rgb connector on the fan.

Can anyone help?

Though, Amazon pics do show the splitter included with 2x connectors in one end, controller in middle and SATA power connector at the other end:

Rather than searching from the net which may not be available at all, contact Deepcool and ask if they can sell you one.

Edit: Would this Deepcool RGB extender work as well?
amazon: https://www.amazon.com/DEEPCOOL-RGB-Extender-Cable-SYNC/dp/B079QZCZN6

With that, you should be able to make 1x Deepcool proprietary RGB connector to 2x.

I have and deepcool told me to plug it straight into the motherboard but i can't because the connector won't fit. I don't understand why it's not just a regular rgb connector. Unfortunately that adapter won't work as it still has no rgb connector on it.

I bought a matrexx 55 and the use of proprietry connector was also giving me trouble but a phanteks extension cable should work
here it is :https://www.amazon.com/Phanteks-Adapter-Specified-Control-PH-CB_RGB4P/dp/B01BZIBJAK

It still didn't help, it just gave me more cables with the same connectors. I ended up having to splice my own to only find out that the red and green wires are switched, so I soldered them the other way around.

No idea how everybody else has been doing this, I'd steer clear of any more RGB stuff from Deepcool or Phanteks personally. Cable management is an absolute headache.
