What is your budget? Do you need wifi? What size motherboard, mATX I assume judging by the case?

Honestly, any which supports that CPU will be fine. Its a locked processor so its fitment, features, price, and aesthetics. I'd look for something H97 based.
My budget idm really and I really have no clue on size and for WiFi I’ll use Ethernet to plug into the mains any good suggestions would be appreciated:)

Only thing that I need is a motherbored capable of handling 16 Gb of ram but with the cpu you I already have and I’m pretty bad with picking parts so I was looking for advice on a decent mother bored to get that would be capable off handling my cpu and ram

You have a Haswell based CPU, which basically came out for a year only before being superceded.
Look for a Socket 1150 Motherboard, or ideally sell the CPU and buy a newer Motherboard and CPU (socket 1151 has been around for years)
