Yes, you cannot use the other Intel sockets (neither Socket 1155, nor Socket 1150 which is the latest consumer socket).  Unless you really want to keep that processor, it might be best to just get a newer processor if you are purchasing a new motherboard. 

 

If there's a way you could order from the US, NewEgg does have (1) remaining model: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813138159

 

Can't vouch for how good it is though, sorry.  However reviews seem decent enough.

The CPU is no longer used, so I'm trying to get a motherboard for it to sell it as a system.

 

I'm perfectly happy to get a second-hand board.

Yeah, I knew you where in Milton Keynes (nice area, I've visited before :) ) but didn't know if you could order from Newegg without hassle.

 

Understand now... you'll just have to keep looking then and jump when a deal shows up.  The chip seems to be going for about US$90, so worth keeping / turning into a sellable system. 

 

Best of luck!
