Updating to a newer system, going with i7-7700k, looking for motherboard suggestions

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
As the title states just looking for a nice motherboard to go with the i7 7700k. I will be doing overclocking and will be gaming primarily. Could people post some suggestions for boards that you feel is a strong candidate for me to check out? There are just so many 1151 socket options...help me decide OCN!

Thanks

Entry (~$110-130 valuation): MSI Z270 SLI PLUS, MSI Z270 TOMAHAWK ARCTIC , ASRock Z270 Extreme4 , ASRock FATAL1TY Z270 GAMING K4
Mid-end (~$160 valuation): ASUS Prime Z270-A , Gigabyte Z270X-UD5 (usually $200 so not worth it IMO), Gigabyte Z270X Gaming 5 (usually $200 so not worth it IMO)
Mid-high end (~$200 valuation): ASUS Maximus IX Hero , Asrock Z270 Taichi
