New Motherboard suggestions??

Hey guys, so I am wanting to rebuild my computer and don't really know what board to get. I want a z97 and am probably getting a 4670k, I was wanting to do a blue build but I don't see really any good boards other than the asrock, but there's no reviews on it. I also am going to be doing a full watercooling loop if that matters. As of now wanting to keep the board under $260. Thanks for any help guys, its kind of driving me nuts trying to decide

Unfortunately for you the good boards are black and red Eg. MSI,Gaming 5/7 or Asus Hero/Ranger.

Best I can find is the MSI Z97S SLI Plus I'm shocked at Gigabyte they were all about the blue boards but now everything is black.

EDIT there is the ROG Maximus option and paint the armour..

Yea everyone is black,red or well that's basicly what everyone is doing. Had a thought about getting a Sabertooth mk1 and painting the armor white, Maybe get some blue ram and blue coolant?? Still looking might still change the color if I have to but would kinda prefer not to

Wasn't snef working on something like that now that I think about it?

Yes that was it! Now obviously it won't be anything as good as what he is making but I want to make a larger version of that color scheme (white and blue)
