Store That Sells Core Booted Desktop Motherboards?
Are there any places that sell desktop motherboards that have already had Core Boot installed ? I have some AM3+ and 775 chips lying around that I was looking to put to use without having to install Coreboot myself.

Vikings and Technoethical have both sold ASUS-KCMA and ASUS-KGPE series boards and systems. You probably won't be able to use those AM3+ CPUs without flashing some board from the coreboot board list (https://coreboot.org/status/board-status.html) yourself.

Yeah I am planning on a build involving the Librebooted D16 board from Technoethical sometime early next year but was hoping to have a more privacy friendly option than a normal closed source board for the other spare chips I have without having to flash a board myself. Oh well.
