There isn't any cases that come with window LED lights, you will need to buy some LED Fans or some LED strips or a NZXT Hue+

Better motherboard in which way? I can pick one out with more features but I don't think you really need them. Then there's picking out a motherboard for better overclocking. Do you need the best one to overclock with?

Yes, you will be fine. if you want to stream a perfect 1080p 60fps you need a capture card like a Elgato Game Capture HD60 Pro

that CPU cooler isn't meant to cool anything more than 65W TDP, that i7 is 91 Watts and its a K so they wont be able to overclock/cpu could overheat if pushed to hard.
