I planning to buy MasterCase H500M, the fans in that case are an addressable RGB which uses WS2812B protocol.

It really depends on the connector - it looks like the fans have an Aura style connector. IF that's the case, then you can use a Corsair to Aura adapter and then a 2x Aura splitter.

If you want to make your own adapter, you can check out http://forum.corsair.com/v3/showthread.php?t=174759 for the Corsair side of things.

Or if you just want to buy them, you can get them here: https://www.ebay.com/str/piratedogtech.

DevBiker's suggest should work. The effects in iCUE will vary as you will have to set the 200MM fans as 4xML fans or 1xLL fan as the Fans have 8 LEDs each with two fans total. I personally haven't tried as I replaced the 200MM fans with 3xHD-120 fans.

If they have 8 LEDs each, with a splitter, you'd set them a 2x ML fans and they'd be duplicated. The Aura cables don't run in series like the Corsair cables and fans do - they run in parallel.
