It should. Give it a shot and see what happens!
Worst case you have to clear CMOS and put the GPU back in.
Update!!! 7/10/12

Good Job so far!! We are looking real good in these contests! If we can get submissions in for everything it would move us up very nicely. We are in the running to be at the top of any of these categories. The core2 / ucbench is the next contest to close and we still need submissions in 2 categories!! As of right now there is only a little over 4 days left in that contest!
Anyone with a core 2 era chip should run ucbench and see if they can get a higher score.

is there anyway to up my score? can i do 3dmark in safe mode?
mill turning off 2 cores and upping my CPu to 4.4ghz help also
If so wants the max amount of Voltage should i pull (to be Safe)
1.44? or more (how much more)
also i can push my IGP to a Max of 1100mhz how do i up voltage on that (IE what would it be called)
IGP is in the NB (not the CPU_NB!).
Feel free to turn off cores till you have two left. Max safe air volts for that core per AMD is 1.5 to 1.55. I know they've been significantly higher than that on air without issue.
How much voltage the NB can take I don't know.

More ram speed. More CPU_NB speed (cache, plus all memory data goes through it).
More sideport speed. Be aware that the sideport ram chip (assuming that board has one) almost certainly does not touch the NB heatsink, so you're going to want some airflow going under the heatsink as well.
Only 3 Days Left for core 2 submissions!!!!!

We are in serious need of an E3000 series submission.
Update 7/29

Good work so far! If you have an IGP now is time for your submissions! There is just over one day left! We still have no submission for Geforce integrated! If you have one we need your help!
