Looking for a new ATX Z170 motherboard

I'm looking for a new motherboard as the one i have is faulty. I currently have:
GPU - 1060 6gb
CPU - i5 6600 non k
Ram - hyperx fury 1x8 2400 C15
power supply - CX650M
Hard drive - 1tb WD
Case - NZXT H500

My budget is around £170

I'm not looking to overclock at the moment, but i might overclock in the future. Also the motherboard i have (which is currently faulty) is a Asus maximus VIII hero.
