For case if you don't care about the size I would go with a full tower. That will allow you to get a full size ATX board, have plenty of room for all your drives, and lots of options for cooling. There are tons of great ones out there. I personally don't care about having all the LEDS and lights i ust want one that works so I have a plain jane Antec full tower which has held a few builds over the last six years or so.
Motherboards are more difficult to point out since there wasn't a lot of info there. Basicly I would say choose your CPU camp first. Then settle on what options you need/want in the board.
Get your facts first, then you can distort them as you please.
