I have a motherboard without overclocking capabilities, and although I will get one soon, I was wondering if I could use this CPU without overclocking it.

What exact mobo do you have? And yes, you can run it in most 1155 socket boards.

So long as the motherboards chipset and socket are compatible, yes it will work. But its kind of a waste to have an unlocked CPU without any ability to overclock it.

Just to be sure, check the motherboards documentation.
