I am having a hard time on deciding the case/mobo, wanting to be sure it all fits with the h100i. I don't want to spend more than $150 on a mobo and no more than $1200 overall. Any recommendations on a single gpu OC mobo that is decent? Any input is much appreciated. Thanks guys.

Here's an Full ATX Tower Case that is usually (it was yesterday and has been many times) right at the same price as you have (hopefully it will drop), its got all the room you could need, water cooling, fans, cool lights, and great performance for price. It has cooling performance the same if not better than most top-of-the-line case, like the popular Phanteks Enthoo Luxe. http://www.overclockersclub.com/reviews/phanteks_enthoo_luxe/7.htm It also has many good reviews from sites like Guru3d and Tweaktown.
