    1 spinning storage
    1 pci cards
    4 processor and ram
    2 on the front of the PSU
    where's the ninth?

    Ninth is logic board fan. It's located near storage fan, at divider plate. It sucks out warm air from underneath of logic board. It looks like small turbine. There is massive heatsink with copper heatpipes under logic board.

    Yep. It's located behind the fan that you can see near the HDDs. Those are not user-serviceable fans. You have to dissemble the entire computer to get to them if you ever had to replace them.
