Possibley but unlocking cores can fail, there is a reson they locked it. It can overheat, get destroyed or malfunction in any sort
of way or it might work. If your motherboard supports it i dont see why not.

Some people say 60% of CPUs unlock, some say 30%, I think it is really closer to 30%. You have a decent chance, but it can cause instability so a clear CMOS button would be nice incase you cannot boot back into the BIOS to change it back. Also, you may have clear CMOS pins. I would suggest the PII X2 555 because it has C3 stepping instead of C2.
