Check the motherboards CPU support list.. Generally, any i5 2XXX model CPU will work on a socket 1155 motherboard.. Some models have a suffix 'k' (ex. i5 2500k) which shows that the CPU has an unlocked multiplier.. CPU's without the 'k' suffix have locked multipliers and hence are not overclockable..

Look for "Sandy Bridge" CPUs, more specifically look for Intel ix-2xxx CPUs, like the i5-2500K, or i7-2600K. The CPUs with a K at the end of the name are multiplier unlocked, meaning that they can be overclocked very easily, however, they are slightly more expensive than the multiplier locked versions, which cannot be overclocked.
