Please recommend MOBO for high performance i7 OSx86 system

I'm new here and pretty much all OSX in my computing on an iMac, but I've built loads of PCs in my time.


I'm looking to built a PC for my son's 18th birthday next month and would like it to triple-boot OSX Lion, Window7 & Linux.


I'm prepared to put in the time & research to get it right but the starting point has to be a motherboard that'll play nice with OSX but still give great gaming performance.


I'm expecting the machine to have:-


Motherboard best suited to the task with 4+ Sata ports (suggestions please?)

i7 Processor

16GB of DDR3 Fast Ram

Separate 120GB Boot SSDs for Windows & OSX, together with additional Sata II (or III if OSX will support it) storage.


I currently have a GTX560Ti GFX Card I was intending to use, but am prepared to change that, particularly if I go for a water-cooled solution.


Can anyone recommend what they feel is THE best high performance OSx86 motherboard right now so I can get this project started?


Many thanks for any suggestions,
