Title:

Is it possible to upgrade MacBook 13" A1181 from 2.0GHz to 2.4GHz?

Text:

I have a macbook 13" A1181 with a fried Core Duo 2.0GHz logic board. The person I took it from had spilled some liquid on it.
 
I am planning to replace the logic board and wondering if I can upgrade it at the same time to a Core 2 Duo 2.4 GHz logic board since I'm already going to go through the trouble.
 
As far as I can tell, the current logic board has a 4-wall heat sensor connector on the heatsink. (it looks just like the 4-wall connector sold on ifixit, but the connectors on mine are black instead of white.
 
I can't tell about the battery connection yet - whether 20 or 18 pin.
 
If, assuming that the current heatsink and batter connection don't work on a core 2 duo, can I just replace them along with the logic board? Is there anything else that would need to be change? like the fan, hard drive, optical drive, etc, or will they have the same connection on the core due v. core2duo?
 
I really appreciate any guidance you can give me.
