Yes. Only because no one has done it, and there is no way to know for certain what would happen.
That being done, I'd love to someone do it. Since you have the ultra cooler, you've got the greatest chance for not frying/melting something.
However, there's no telling if the card will take it. There is some argument for it, being that both cards have the same core, however, the ultra requires more watts, and I suspect that your new bios won't like the 9300's stock power supply.
Just remember this, nothing is every discovered without experimentation. The only way we'll ever know if it will work and be advantegous is if someone tries it. Just take precautions if you decide to.
You've got the cooler, you plan to start with lower clocks. Just make sure you know how to flash it back if your video dies and you have no display. If you melt something though, don't blame me, because I'll tell you right now it's risky.
