You may not have a lot of extra headers on the Gene.
Yes, that is what led me to this question. The Maximus XI Gene has the following headers:
CPU_OPT
CPU_FAN
AIO_PUMP
FS_FAN1
FS_FAN2
CHA_FAN
W_PUMP+

According to the motherboard manual, CPU_FAN, CPU_OPT and CHA_FAN are "Q-Fan Controlled" while FS_FAN1, FS_FAN2, AIO_PUMP and W_PUMP+ are locked at full speed. My understanding is that the full speed headers are there to support extreme overclockers who just want their fans to run at full speed.

Seems to me that if I want to have my case fans speed controlled my only options are to either plug one into CHA_FAN and a couple of them into CPU_FAN and CPU_OPT or get some sort of extra fan controller.
