Hello lordofwater

Have you considered any of the gaming motherboards such as the hero or formula? The formula has the crosschill block for liquid or air cooling and the RGB lighting feature, You can set it to your color theme.

At stock speeds they will all perform about the same, if you will be overclocking the Hero and formula are a better choice although I'm sure the boards you listed will overclock too.

If you will be running high speed ram and overclocking, out of those three I would choose the z170 premium or the maximus viii formula.

It sounds to me like you want the maximus viii formula, you can use the pre installed crosschill waterblock in your loop too.

What I circled in red is where you put the fittings for the crosschill block.
