What motherboard should i get?

So my budget is <200, i own an i5-7600k so it should be 1151 Z270 right? Here are some of the points to keep in mind!
-I want to try to overclock.
-my rig is black/red themed.
-lighting is a bonus.
-i will buy an MSI GTX 1060 right after.

    Assuming you are looking for an ATX-sized motherboard, I'd suggest the Asrock Fatal1ty Z270 Gaming K6, good overclocking capabilities, black/red theme, RGB LED, supports Dual BIOS, good audio codec and LAN controllers, and feature pack in ports/connectivity.

    This was my option at first but so many people told me not to get ASROCK, but either ASUS/MSI or maybe GIGABYTE
