I'm looking for some advice on connecting multiple fans to a Gigabyte X99 UD4 which I plan to Overclock the CPU to 4.3Mhz

My setup

Fractal Define R5 Case
Gigsbyte X99 UD4 Motherboard
Intel Core I7 5820k CPU
Corsair Vengeance LPX 16GB 2400 Memory
Corsair RM750i PSU
Noctua NH D15S 82.5 CFM CPU Cooler (including additional Noctua NF A15 PWM 140mm fan)
Noctua NF A14 PWM 140mm
Noctua NF A14 PWM 140mm

In total there are 6 fans which includes the 2 stock Fractal Case fans

Would it be safe to use the Noctua's supplied Y cable splitter to connect 2 fans to 1 fan header on the motherboard ?
I have heard that you can burn out the boards header this way if not careful ?

Can anyone advise ?

Many Thanks
