So I got 2 ML120s of a broken h100i platinum, and plugged it directly into the existing h100i platinum with Y splitters for power, and homemade Y splitters for RGB. Everything seems to work perfectly even at full power. I hesitate to add 1 more fan, but it will certainly be too much for a single SATA power supply.

In addition, what can be the signs of a poor power supply in this case? Will the leds be weak? Will the fans have trouble working?

I have practically the same problem as you. I want to connect a third fan to the Corsair Hydro i100 platinum. The third fan will be the rear fan of the case (ML 120 pro RGB). To do this I thought I would use, like you, a Y-shaped USB connector that divides the signal in two (for the power supply there would be no problems because I would use one of the motherboard outputs).
I understand that you did it and it worked? Which connector did you use? (could you give me some links?) And how does lighting management on the additional fan work?

To make it simple, you can use a single connector for two fans at the same time, both for the leds and for the power supply. You have to pull the cables out of the fan1 connector, do the same with fan2, twist the cables from fan1+fan2 together, and put them back into a single connector. Same procedure for the power supply. In the end the 2 fans will be identical in lights and rotation.

As on the picture here.
