    Assuming that the I5 3450 in "partians" system specs is the one, a Socket 1155 motherboard is needed. Not 1151.

    I buy most of my stuff through Newegg, who also does business in the UK.

    Assuming that you want another H61 microATX board, here's what they have:

    Intel H61, Micro ATX, Intel Motherboards, Motherboards, Components - Newegg.com

    I might not go for the cheapest (Biostar), but I've been happy with my current Asrock board.

    I hope that the CPU, RAM, and graphics card survived whatever took out the mainboard. I'd also worry about the power supply.

    It's for an AMD Socket FM2+ CPU. It won't take an Intel Socket 1155 processor, if that is what you need.

    As bobkn mentioned, you should probably verify the rest of your components are still good. It would be a shame to buy a new motherboard if it was the PSU that was shot, etc...

    Well everytime I want to boot up my PC it cycles through on and off until I take the CMOS out and battle with it for 10 minutes.

    "take the CMOS out"??

    What do you mean? Do you clear the CMOS (also known as the RTC, real time clock), or physically remove the BIOS EEPROM?

    Perhaps I took "fried" too literally. Let's back up: can you boot into the BIOS settings? If so, can you reset them to defaults (or optimized defaults)?
