Amazon.co.uk does not quite cut the mustard...!

Just discovered this forum today. Been working on a build separately, and glad to see it looks like a lot of what I was thinking works!
But then I saw this build (and the other miniITX builds).
So a couple questions that I just don't see:
I'm considering this build with an OCZ 32Gb SSD, 4Gb (2x2) of RAM, Blu-Ray player, and using it with a remote (since the Mobo supports CIR ... awesome). Planning on loading linux (probably Ubuntu 11.04) with XBMC, streaming from NAS, and watching blu-ray / dvd's on it.
I wonder about heat:
Is this supposed to be just fine with the stock HSF and no other internal fan required?
Also, if someone's made this, how loud /is/ the stock HSF unit? Should it be replaced (and is there room?).
Seems this kind of miniITX build is absolutely perfect for a HTPC build ... I just worry about space in it and heat build-up.
Also, in my experience, linux can be a PITA with some integrated graphics. Anyone built this with linux yet?
Looks like an awesome build. Out the door for around $400 with all the extra features. Just have to find a CIR module, I guess!

Wondering if the stock HSF on amd a8-3850 is loud as well? What would be a good low profile replacement?

Most boxed coolers suck.
I like scythe maybe the Big Shuriken 2.
