Hello OC forum!
I will be building a mITX form factor rig soon and I'll need some advice on components and etc. But for now I need to decide upon a motherboard and I know very little about the z170 motherboards.
However two requirements must be met for me to use them:
The motherboard must be able to use a Samsung 950 512gb m.2 SSD as a boot drive/ primary disk.
Must have a 8-pin power connector for better OC.

So I've been looking at the following boards, listed by price, lowest first:
MSI Z170I GAMING PRO AC
ASUS Z170I PRO GAMING
Gigabyte Z170N Gaming 5
ASRock Z170 GAMING ITX/ac Fatal1ty
ASUS Z170 MAXIMUS VIII IMPACT No m.2 support? Prob too expensive anyways.
Any other motherboards that are worth looking at?

Any advice, recommendation, warning or opinion is needed and I would greatly appreciate them.
