mainly, I would like to know if I would need any fan splitters or extra stuff for the fans and RGB strip that comes with the case , or if i have enough headers and things on my mobo. Second, would the two included fans be enough cooling? Third, any other recommendations you might have
 
You should definitely change your RAM from a single stick to a Dual Channel kit. So two 4GB sticks. Ryzen performs much better with dual channel, and if you can get 3200mhz or faster. You can buy a cheaper case such as this one to make up the difference

didn't even realize i was using 1x8, meant to use 2x4 and won't anything more bottleneck my specs, don't really need to multitask, might get two more later.
 
Oops sorry yeah I picked 16GB out of habit. As far as adding more later, that's a toss up. They may work or they may not. It's really better to buy the RAM you plan on using in your system at the same time in a matching kit as there is no guarantee for compatibility.
