ASUS, Gigabyte should serve you well. They have cheap 1156 boards that can OC quiet well too if needed. The only boards you probably want to stay away from is Intel boards. Most of them lock all the overclocking BIOS options.

Surprisingly, newer Intel boards actually allow overclocking. Alas, overclocks are limited since they don't allow changing the voltages and all those other little tweaks that are present on third party boards. Personally, I tend to go with Gigabyte.
