Split addressable RGB header?

Hey guys, I currently finished building my new computer, however I am in a bit of a conundrum. I have the Asus ROG Maximus XI Code motherboard that has 2 3-pin addressable RGB headers however I have 3 addressable RGB products that I want to plug in.

Currently connected into my 2 headers are;
A-RGB Header 1: Phanteks Evolv X case lighting
A-RGB Header 2: Thermaltake TT Sync Controller with 5 Thermaltake Riing Plus fans connected to the controller.

My third A-RGB product is the Asus ROG Thor 1200P.

My research suggests that you can't plug in a 3-pin A-RGB cable into the regular 4-pin RGB header since it will blow it up. Source: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zu9mikz9zpQ

Also, most of the splitters I've found only work for A-RGB identical fans. Such as the Cooler Master A-RGB splitter, http://www.coolermaster.com/cooling/cooling-rgb-accessories/argb-1-to-3-splitter-cable/

So is there a way to split an A-RGB header into two with two differing products?

Or is there another way for me to do this?

Thanks in advance!

Check this out. It should help.. Just make sure your 4pin RGB cable has the key on it and you are safe. you can use a splitter cable that accommodates your connections at both ends. Let me know if you still have any questions.
