You forgot the Reed set!

Meteor chestpiece dropped off one of the golems in the desert.
Rogue hood was in a chest in the Forgotten River area, in a secret area SE (near the crystal and fountain). See this thread for more about the set http://www.grimrock.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=20&t=7336.
Mirror gauntlets are in the pyramid on level 1 in an alcove (inside a secret area I think).
The Archmage legpiece is from the Thief's Cache (caster). That's probably one of the better known locations :)
The Archmage hat is in the sewers in a secret area.
The Crystal Shield is in the sewers in a secret area which can be accessed by going under water in the NW part of the level. It also requires a gold key.

I'll edit this with more info when I get it. Probably on second playthrough.

Embalmer's Robe is in a buried treasure chest beside the tree opposite the healing crystal in the beach. You can get it immediately after you get the shovel.

Wow I'm really sad to see most of the sets have no global bonus for completing them.
It is pitch black. You are likely to be eaten by a grue.
My end game stats LoG 1st play through

Actually, i belive that buried treasure are random... so i think i'll put a generic "Buried Treasure" then

Actually i already wrote thing like status bonus and malus, and i belive weight to be un-important.
What i could need is more precision on the spot.

Crystal Helmet is in South East Wormbound Catacombs after solving a puzzle . It's right next to the "ice guardian statue" which is used to solve a nearby riddle/puzzle.

Meteor Greaves are in North Wormbound Catabombs, need gold key to access.

Crystal Cuirass is in the Flooded Dungeon which is in the Sleet Island.
It's a secret.
