There are 2 outflows from the res, one to the gpu, the other to the cpu. The flows combine and go to the rad, then back to the res.

Spoiler!
If you do end up finding a sub 20L office case that can fit a 240mm rad, please let me know, that would be a pretty cool find.

The update looks great btw, especially the fan controller.

If you want to go even smaller, there are some boutique SFF cases, but those demand substantially more money. Or you'll have to go with something off TaoBao, which has some incredible relatively affordable cases, but actually ordering one involves some hassle and risk.

Sounds like a cool project. I used to have a Mac Pro 1,1. Upgraded it to dual quad xeons for cheap. Was a cool system until the motherboard failed and a replacement would have been more than the machine was worth. Wish I could have saved the case, but I moved shortly after and sold most of my stuff.

Eventually I will pick one up just to mod. I'm not really into Apple stuff these days, but it looks like tonymacx86 is still a thing, so a hackintosh project might be in the works.
