Default upgrading cpu in laptop

i already did alot of research about upgrading my acer 5534 laptop it has a amd tf-20(amd k8) thats rated at 15 watts, i found out the cpu is a s1g1 that i can use any tl series cpu to upgrade...but only one thing im afraid of is the lowest watts the tl series will go to is 32 watts, i was wondering what would the over heating chance be with that much more watts. i do play games on this laptop so the cpu will be under load alot

if the over heating chance is very great is there anything i can do to help from over heating(upgrade fan?) or software?

I think there's a program called Fan Control or something....use a real fan for the laptop.

The motherboard may not be able to provide enough power to it.

Just because the socket is the same, it doesn't mean CPU's are interchangeable.

as far as heat, you could use speedfan to kick the fans up.
Be sure to use good thermal compound (AS5 is best imo) and keep it on a flat surface.
