Black/Red High Airflow Budget Build

Hello everyone! Thanks for checking out my budget gaming build!
This PC is almost completely build using used parts. I challenged myself to build a good performing, decent looking gaming PC with focus on e-sport titles such as overwatch, apex and csgo. I've just now added another 8gb of DDR3-2400 to the build and I'm now happy with the final results.

The total cost of the build is just 390€! (excl. peripherals)

The i7-4770k runs overclocked at 4.6GHz at 1.32v.
The RAM is running at DDR3-2400 using the XMP profile. With only 2 sticks I can get it up to DDR3-2800 with the same timings.
Additional to the parts list, I bought a unbranded RGB Strip with controller for only 6€, shipped, from China.

The only "issue" with the PC is the Mainboard, the upper PCIe slot is sadly broken. But it was really cheap so thats a compromise I can live with.
No big performance hit either with the 1060 running in the lower 8x slot.

That's it! Thanks again for stopping by. Leave a [Approve!] if you want =)
