My question is: should i buy a new CPU cooler and/or fans for the case? I'll have moderate, and a few times heavy, sessions of gaming, and i don't know if the stock system is enough to cool down my PC.

Hyper 212 or Cyriog h7 is good enough for gaming.

What about fans? Do i need any of those?

You only need to add them if you have high cpu or gpu temps. Also if you want a more slient system since you can run more of them at a lower rpm.

the comrade doesn't come with any intake fans, and even when there are, the front intakes are fairly restrictive vs. other cases. I would get two 120s for the intake when you build the pc. I don't know how many fan headers your motherboard has off the top of my head, but you will probably need a fan splitter/cord.

With an R9 380, I'd want more case fans. two or more 140mm inlet fans and one 140mm exhaust. stock CPU cooler will be fine if it has cooler air from the outside flowing by it.

I'd consider a different case.
