PM'd you where that photo is..
I assambled the fans onto the rads. Here is a photo of all four of them. The 360's in front look small compared to the 560's in the back.
I installed the rad/fan assemblies into the case in a testing configuration. Those 8:1 fan headers are great for connecting a bunch fans together.
Here is a front view of the bottom rad chamber. Again, those 8:1 fans heards are great. I know it looks like a mess, but I'm just testing things now. I intend to create custom wiring harnesses for the fans circuits and connect them to the fan controllers. I intend to install the second fan controller just above the bottom rads.
Here is the top fan controller installed just below the top rads. One set of 6 fans is connected for a test.
Now that I have the basics assembled and installed I will measure up a few more things in order to sort out the details of the fans wiring and the water loop using Sketchup. I got an order of sleeving stuff from MDPC on its way. It was shipped on 21-Feb and should be here soon. I have intensionally not ordered the MB, CPU, etc yet because that would add stress for me to finish the case and cooling systems. Once I finish the water cooling loop, I will order the MB and CPU. I can't find a i7-3930K in stock now anyway...
