I have it running right now for about 8 hours before I put it in. I have three 200mm fans and two 120mm fans plus my room is airconditioned so it should take up the slack from having no cpu fan.
Honestly, I highly doubt that. CPU's generate a tremendous amount of heat. I would not run it w/o a cpu cooler.
