Some people just don't take pride in their $3k machines and slap things together like this. At least drill a hole for that tube instead of sticking it through a fan hole.

And ... uh ... that top rad is plumbed in through its fill/drain port? Meaning that unless they're connecting both ports on the other end, only half of it actually sees any water flowing through it? o_O

Dude... it's a Monsta rad... which makes that half being used as effective as a regular 30mm rad... right..... right?!

I mean, come on, you don't want to make life easy for your fans, do you? Have them fight each other! Yeah! That's what the cool kids do.

Seriously though, why does that case even have more fans than the ones on the radiator?

At that point it would be better to just use a 2U or 4U server chassis. Why would you need a case that big?
It's a throwback to late 90s-early 2000s full tower cases. My family had one of those, it was gigantic and really weird. Proportions match, but this is sized like a modern case (read: much wider), so it's overall much wider again.

I remember those, but they were not empty in those ancient times ;)
