Question for computer people

So I have multiple things going to my addressable rgb header on my computer. I was wondering do you think I could use a 4 pin Y splitter from the robotics kits? I know this isn’t really a robotics question but just curious

You need all four wires in the splitter. The Y’s that I’m thinking about only have 3 wires. There is a 4 wire serial adapter cable but it’s weird on how it splits the cable. (4 pins from the UART into two 3 pin connectors, one for transmit, one for receive)

If it was my PC, I’d just buy a Y or 3 port splitter and use something made for the job. I’m not about risking a $600 and up computer on a $5 cable.
