Also, how much tubing is needed, and how many fittings do I need? Which fittings should I get?

Before anything you need to read the watercooling sticky, as you don't seem to know much of anything about what you're geting into. A mountain mods or caselabs case is well beyond overkill for you if you're only focusing on CPU. Furthermore, you should do a lot of reading on overclocking 3930k's to see what to expect from liquid cooling. Please read the sticky, make sure you understand it, and plot out what you intend to do first. Don't take it the wrong way, it's just that there's a lot of information you really need to know before you can make any informed decisions, and until then us helping you might end up with you having paid significantly more than you needed or not getting what you wanted out of it.

I like Dizz's list, that mountain mods case is a beaut.

If you want a tube res, consider the Phobya Balancer, and perhaps the MCP 655 with it?

Fittings.. Monsoon's are nice but a little hard to work with, XSPC's are solid and affordable.

Think about if you want any quick-disconnects and 45 or 90 degree rotary compressions too.

Why does he even need a case that big guys? Think about it all he said is he wnats to cool his CPU and you recommend a mountain mods case? That's ludicrous.

oh it is overkill for what he has planned now but we all know how addicting this hobby is so it gives him potential in the future to add more components to his loop which would need more rad. it just gives him options

I agree with this. In the future I may want another radiator to cool a gpu or two, especially if the geforce titan gk110 rumor is true.

There are also really helpful how to and review videos on Youtube. I'd suggest watching all you can and doing even more reading on additional websites before ordering anything.
Also I'd suggesting ordering and receiving these items first:
1) Case -- Will give you an idea of what sort of space you'll have
2) Radiators, Mobo, Ram, Fans -- You'll have a better idea of available space

Of course this will involve more time to build from start to finish, but it will save you money and help reduce the risk of ordering things you won't need. Unless you have a whole bunch extra, it's usually not worth returning fittings as you'll have to pay for shipping and a 20% restock fee (frozencpu and ppcs).
