Will upgrading my motherboard boost performance ?

First of all, my specs: I originally bought the predator g3 605 (with the gtx 745) and just slapped a 1060 in it:
Intel i7 4770 (non k), with a non intel coole (I don't know what it is, nothing written on it)
Gtx 1060 6G strix (oc'd and from asus)
32 gigs of ddr3 ram
128GB ssd
1TB hdd
An extra fan(which I don't seem able to change it's speed)
And finally the predator g605 motherboard if I've not mistaken it's name
Okay, now for my question:
Is there a bottleneck between any components?(could you suggest a way to test that, say a specific benchmark?)
And if yes, will changing the motherboard have any impact?
Thank's in advance.

    No mother will not boost performance a CPU or GPU, ram upgrade will boost your performance

    Well the thing is that my mobo only supports ddr3 so upgrading my ram will mean that I have to upgrade my mobo... so I don't know. But are you sure there is no performance boost from a new mobo ? I have a recent gpu and an old mobo that might not support the new pcie standard... so I don't know

    No
  4. You are good. There will be a slight bottleneck but not too much. 32 gigs is really overkill but will do. Check out your PSU, that is the weak point of pre-builts.
