Should I go for an mATX or ITX board?
That depends on what features and functionality you want on the motherboard. The case can accommodate both. The ITX normally has wifi, though only has 1 card slot, and usually only two ram slots. Most people would be fine w/ an ITX, I don't know why people like my still buy a normal ATX board, when I only use one expansion slot. Though it is hard to buy a good board for overclocking that has good VRMs for OC'ing that isn't a full size ATX or E-ATX.

In all look for the feature set that meets your needs, and component quality (i.e. good capacitors, mosfets, and etc). All motherboard manufacture's make decent boards, at least I know Gigabyte, Asus, and AS Rock. Also ignore the marketing buzzwords like ROG, Stryx, Aorus. Sometimes you pay more for a name, than the components on it.
