I would

  1. get faster RAM
  2. get a 3rd case fan (2 would go to the GPU compartment, the 3rd to the CPU/motherboard compartment).

the case can only fits the 2 fans for the GPU. no fan space for motherboard or CPU except the CPU cooler/fan.

As for the RAM, I think I will. thanks for your response

I've definitely seen someone putting a 3rd fan over the exhaust on the motherboard compartment. I've gotta rush to work, but these are all the completed builds with your case:

Thank you so much, I've tried to search for builds, but the search features is not working for me for some reason. I appreciate the help!

What I did was selected the case, then bottom left there is a Completed Builds Using This Part section. Below that a See All Completed Builds link.
