That CPU cooler in the second picture is immense..........

Should be great for a case that has a large side blowing fan as that heatsink looks to be about 20cm square (guesstimate), perhaps 24cm.

They intend to make separate ITX coolers for AMD and Intel boards as their specifications around the socket area are a bit different. Now if only motherboard manufacturers would stop moving the socket around too. ;)

Given that it's a mini-ITX board, and it's based on L12, I'd say it's 12 cm.

Are Noctua coolers and fans reasonably priced in Europe? They're crazy expensive in the US compared to most others.

No they're among the most expensive coolers everywhere. Their build quality is also really high so it makes sense, though whether it's worth the cost is certainly a good question.
