A friend of mine gets a free chip from intel every year, and this year he got the i5-680 clarkdale. He doesn't need it, so lucky me, he gave it to me.
Now I have the dilemma of finding a decent motherboard that has pretty good OC capabilities for $130 or less. After countless hours researching, it seems like an impossible feat. If would be forever indebted to someone who gives me a good suggestion on which motherboard to go with. Thanks.

sell it on ebay and buy a socket 1155 cpu.
That would be a good option yes, but Intel has a strict policy of re-selling free employee merchandise, so I'd rather not risk my friend getting in trouble. he STRICTLY told me not to sell it. Soo I'm kinda stuck with this CPU.
