Default Looking for new mobo

So I am going to be RMA'ing my 780i for the second time now and I'm sick of it so I will be selling it on here later (keep an eye out if you are interested).

I am going to get a new mobo with the money but I don't know what to get. Yes I know just about every one of you will say the I45 but I wanted to hear some other suggestions.

I won't be going SLI, I don't have the funds for that because I'm in college and paying for part of my tuition with just a summer job. A good overclocker would be nice so my WC isn't a waste. So lets hear some other suggestions besides the I45, I know its a great board, I just like to go different ways than other people sometimes. I feel bored if I just get the same thing as everybody else.

The Gigabyte EP45-UD3p is a good overclocker.
