One big advice. Choose the case that's easier to clean, if you plan to do that stuff :D One that have easy access for dust filters and stuff like that. I bought Cooler Master CM 690 III, and it's great, don't get me wrong, plenty of room for storage, fans, can support really long graphic cards, but cleaning dust filters every month is really... it's not super hard but it's annoying when you have to remove a lot of parts to get to them. Just one more thing, check that part of case, that has a hole for CPU cooler mount (I don't know the right term) so it's aligned with your motherboard. I think Z170 motherboard have a slightly different layout than Z97, CPU socket is moved more to the right I think, so I had problem screwing Cooler mount. I hope I didn't confuse you :D

How about a BitFenix Prodigy case? (see https://pcpartpicker.com/products/case/#G=1,12&sort=a1&page=1, not the M series, just the regular.)
