Need Advice on Motherboard ASAP

Title explains it, so here's my system:

CPU: Intel i7-2600k

GPU: Asus GTX 570

RAM: G.Skill 8 GB (2*4GB) 1600 MHz

I have a 1000W PSU. The system will be for gaming mostly, my GPU covers up 3 slots and I'll go SLI someday so I want a spacey and upgradable mobo, with a good phase power design

USB 3 and Sata 3 required.

Overclocking: Maybe, so I want a mobo with proper heatsinks and layout for this purpose.

3D Gaming: No

Multi-monitor gaming: No

Water cooling: Maybe later

Will buy it in 2 days so need guidance ASAP.

I don't really care about the value, just post the best motherboard in your mind for this system.

Thanks in advance.

Do yourself a favor and check out Asus ROG Z68 Maximus series boards. Read reviews on them and spend some time reading the ROG forums.

Much appreciated my friend, also forgot to mention the boards I've had in mind.

Gigabyte G1 Sniper 2

Gigabyte GA Z68XP UD5

I would do more research if I had the time but an opportunity presented itself, I am able to buy parts from Korea, much cheaper than my country, and I have so little time to make the order.

If anyone else has a better board in mind, or would make a recommendation from these 3 motherboards mentioned, please, share the knowledge.
