I personally out of those choices would go with the Maximus V Gene, or the ASRock.

I tend to stay away from MSI, and the sabertooth's "heat shielding" actually tends to trap heat in more than keep it cool.

Even though the ROG board is Micro ATX, if you don't need the extra PCI slots (which it sounds like you don't) that is not a bad thing at all.

Edit: in regards to the E-ATX MB in that case, you "should" be ok, since it is possible for the MB to drop down behind the PSU, but I can not guarantee that.
