Questions about this build (i56500,1060 3gb) specifically PSU, RAM, GPU perf., etc. /?

Hello everybody,
So I'm about to buy a conf. I put together w/ the following parts, that I have a few questions about:
Mobo: AsRock H110M-ITX/ac
CPU: Intel i5-6500 (3.2 ghz)
GPU: GTX 1060 3gb - WINDFORCE OC 3G
RAM: Crucial 4GB DDR4-2133 UDIMM (CT4G4DFS8213) (more on that later...)
SSD: SanDisk Z400s 256Gb (irrelevant, as I already have it)
PSU: CoolerMaster B500 v2 (500W, EU)
Case: CoolerMaster Elite 130 (Mini-ITX)
Display: PHILIPS 223V5LSB/00 V-line (1080p, TN)

1, I will buy an additional 4gb DDR4 afterwards (for reasons...) and I probably won't be able to buy the exact same type. What specs should I look for so that both slots will function without problems? (And will 8gb be enough for my uses?)

2, If I don't buy any additional cooling, only what comes with the case and the CPU, will it affect the longevity of my computer? If so, how? I don't care that much about noise and this is obviously a budget build. I'll use this PC mainly for editing, rendering (3D), simulations, sometimes gaming (only 1080p 60hz).

3, Is that PSU okay? I saw it recommended on JohnnyGuru over even worse ones, but that doesn't really reassure me. I live Europe, no Amazon or Newegg here, but if you really want to help, then I'm buying from ipon.hu. Here's a specific link for PSUs with a filter on the right. (Just European model recommendations will do aswell)

4, I won't manually OC, but is it a problem if I abuse the GPU's OC/Gaming mode? Can my mobo take it?

5, Regarding the display, is that cheap TN panel any good? I could go with an IPS if someone can recommend a cheaper PSU, doubt 500W is necessary.

6, Lastly, should I go with this mobo or is it better to choose the non-ac version and buy a usb stick WLAN thingy (it's actually cheaper)? I won't have LAN conection near my PC.

Thanks in advance! (Even outside the questions, just tell me something)

  1. Best answer
    1-don't do that it's better to buy a 2 pack ram instead of two standalone kits
    2-depending on your climate, because the stock cooler can only do so much, especially with CPU intensive tasks like rendering
    3-I guess
    4-GPU overclock has nothing to do with a mobo
    5-don't know really
    6-onboard is better

    go for another mobo, preferably a MSI or an Asus, just personal preference

    Thanks, I will look into the motherboard a bit more! PSU, anyone?
