I know this going to sounds familiar but...
"There is no best Mobo look at the feature and see if they interest you"
Still, i think whatever the features you will (at some point) make use of it, they just simplify most of your common tasks or enhance them.
I own a z97 hero i'am very happy with it, over it is the Formula.
So, i will recommend you the Formula.
Here is a comparison of the Z97 Mobos:

For the features i recommend to look on the Internet about what each do and if people found a real difference.

For example GameFirst 3, as far as i'm concerned: it work wonderful, my ping does not go up one bit whatever i download, watch stream or anything else, SupremeFX did really enhance the overall feeling of most of my games and made possible to hear sounds i was never aware of before.

If you're looking for an upgrade for your X79 system, the obvious choice would be to step it up to the X99 platform. Switching over to the Z97 platform is more of a downgrade to what you have at the moment.

The best motherboard you can get on the X99 platform is the Rampage V Extreme without a doubt. It's just an amazing motherboard to game and overclock on. You get all the cool gaming features from Maximus Z97 line.

Just a little surprised you are driving a RIVE and not aware of the latest model.
And it is not just a matter of upgrading the mobo. Like Chino said, the RVE is the latest best. But that means new CPU, DDR4 memory. You didn't mention your PSU. Hope it it powerful enough. Ah, and by the way, sell your GPU and grab the latest Nvidia GTX 980. Ot wait until December or sometime next year for AMD R9 300.
