    With the B-series MoBo, you can't OC your CPU nor use your RAM at speeds of 2400 Mhz. Your RAM speed will be automatically downgraded to run at the 2133 Mhz.
    If you want to OC your CPU and use faster than stock speeds of RAM, you need to get a Z-series MoBo.

    For CPU cooler, you can go with the same one as used in my Skylake build (full specs in my signature), an Arctic Freezer i32.

    It has fluid dynamic bearing fan and it can be easily upgraded from push configuration to the push-pull configuration with any 120mm fan. I've done so with the 2nd 120mm fluid dynamic bearing fan (Arctic F12 PWM PST).

    Refined your build a bit.

    Few words.

    Didn't change the CPU.
    Put in the CPU cooler i described above.
    For CPU OC, put in Z-series MoBo.
    Went with 2x 4GB DDR4 RAM that you can also OC to run at speeds of 2666 Mhz.
    Switched the unreliable HDD out with more common HDD.
    GPU is still GTX 1060 6GB but this time the Zotac version to keep the cost down.
    You listed Cooler Master case while you linked the DIYPC case, got confused and to reduce the cost, went with Deepcool case instead.
    And lastly, didn't change the good quality PSU.

    Build is $10 over your budget but i think you can find the extra 10 bucks.
