Small, quiet and portable for gaming, movies and office on Linux

As the title suggests, I'm trying to build a PC for gaming, movies and office work. Everything on Linux. It is important that it be as quiet as possible. Cost is of less importance. What do you guys think of this build? Notice the S-type CPU with a TDP of 95 Watts. Would I be able to fit in a NoFan CR-95C Fanless CPU Cooler, which is not listed on this site, to replace the Noctua NH-C14?
