If you want to install plain KitKat, i.e. A Nexus-like experience. You can download CyanogenMod from here. It has very minor bugs and is perfect for daily usage

If you want to install KitKat with Sense 6 i.e. a HTC One M8-like experience. You can find it here although it has a good few minor bugs but it is still usable as your main ROM. You need HBOOT 2.16 installed though. To find out how to install HBOOT 2.16 go to this page

HTC One (M7_UL)
Android 4.4.3 (KitKat)
ROM: MaximusHD 42.0.0
Firmware: 6.06.401.1
Radio: 4T.28.3218.04
Kernel: ElementalX 16.0
S-OFF: Firewater
