You may not have a lot of extra headers on the Gene. There are going to be some limitations to a few of the headers. Unless Asus decided to dramatically alter course on that model, any AIO or W_Pump headers will revert to CPU Temperature control only when you take off the preset "disabled" fan control (100%). CPU/OPT are also bound to CPU temperature control only. This gives you three headers that can only do CPU temp control and CPU and OPT are inherently bound together. You have no control for OPT. It will do whatever you instruct CPU Fan to do.

You might have a T-Sensor input for a 10K thermistor on that board (lower right corner, 2 prong) that then becomes a fan control option. The manual would confirm this, if present. If so, running the little wire up to the top side of the radiator exhaust will mimic coolant temperature and give you some balance from the fans. You won't be able to do GPU temp unless you have an Asus GPU, so that is out for the rear fan. I liked t o used VRM temp, but that has become a casualty on non-HEDT boards as well. The Gene is a little bit of mystery to me since we did not get a US launch for it.
