Celeron M and Intel Mobile Duo Core Heat

I have found out that my laptop with a new bios up date can support a dual core CPU but my concern is about heat. It currently has a Celeron M 410 1.46 GHz with 533 FSB 65nm and I am looking into the Intel T2350 Mobile Duo Core 1.86GHz 533MHz 65nm. But I don't know how hot the duo core runs.

Also the the motherboard only has 1mb of cache on it but the Mobile Duo CPU has 2mb, I know it would be a kind of bottle neck, but would that cause it to not work. I am just trying to up my laptop some more, just dont have the funds to buy a better one. I have already maxed it out on ram.

Any Ideas or Suggestions will be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Both chips are designed to operate in the same spaces so even if the dual core is warmer (which I doubt it'll be much warmer if it even is) its designed for higher temps.

PS: The motherboard doesn't have L2 cache, the CPU does. :)

If it's supported then chuck it in. Worst case scenario? You singe your knee while using the laptop and upgrade the cooling in it.

Don't forget the thermal paste!
