unfortunate I haven't found a fan controller that will allow me to do that yet (not even the fan controller with USB interface like the bitfenix recon) but it's understandable why it's a problem since each mobo/card reports temp alittle differently.
the ONLY possible solution is to split out the PWM signal from your GPU fans and plug that into a rheosmart6 controller, but from personal experience the PWM to voltage translation does not work very well. another option is to split out the PWM signal and use a PWM splitter to have the GPU directly control the PWM fans. however your fans aren't PWM fans
anyway current configuration looks clean and should provide good amount of cooling at a reasonable noise level.
Speedfan works with my mobo. I can control the fans plugged in the motherboard without a single problem (bottom fan for example, or rear fan if I had it). But the fan plugged in the controller (aka the two at the front) are controlled by the controller only.
Concerning the part in bold, well exactly, can't control it that way. But as you said the actual configuration runs well.
At idle, I'm setting the bottom fan at 50% and both the front fans at 5V. Pushing the bottom one at 70 on load and both the one in front at 12V.
I set my H100i to default configuration (variate depending on load and temps) rather than a fixed RPM.

Oh, well, I did not know that at all ! Do you think it'll pose some kind of problem ?
