Hooking two SP120's to a CPU 4 pin

I need a way to hook two SP120's into a 4 pin CPU header for my Push/Pull Corsair H60

What I know I'll need is a 4 pin Y splitter cable, which I have.

The Y splitter makes 2 4 pin connections, but the SP120 fans are a 3 pin fan.

With that in mind, how can I connect my 3 pin SP120's into my 4 pin Y splitter?

4 pin connectors are typically two +DC wires (yellow and/or red) and two ground (black). 3 pin connectors share the common ground usually.

Are you saying that I cant just stick them into the 4 pin slot on an offset and be fine?

As long as the pins match up. In several instances on builds I have done, I took a "Y" adapter, cut the end off, and soldered the wires together (matching colors of wires). Make sure to use heat shrink tubing to keep things neat...
