If not (and since I'm no expert on the Asus cooler, I can't say if it is or not), then I'd connect the to the CoPro, use one of the CoPro's thermistors to measure the temperature of the radiator exhaust, and use that to control the fan speed. The radiator exhaust temperature is a good proxy for the coolant temperature - it'll typically be within 0.5C.
The Asus cooler does allow you to control the fans based on the temperature of the CPU (99% certain of this). So does this seem right to you?

LL120 Fan 1 (front bottom):

Power - 360 AIO
RGB - LED fan hub

LL120 Fan 2 (front middle):

Power - 360 AIO
RGB - LED fan hub

LL120 Fan 3 (front top):

Power - 360 AIO
RGB - LED fan hub

LL120 Fan 4 (top front):

Power - CoPro
RGB - LED fan hub

LL120 Fan 5 (top rear):

Power - CoPro
RGB - LED fan hub

LL120 Fan 6 (top front):

Power - CoPro
RGB - LED fan hub

Then...

LED fan hub ---> SATA power
LED fan hub ---> CoPro (LED 1)
LED strips (4 connected together) ---> CoPro (LED 2)
CoPro ---> SATA power
CoPro ---> USB header

Does this setup work? This is the only part of the build that I'm somewhat unsure over. Haha.
