That ^ is a something you need to watch out for. Most laptops are designed for a certain amount of heat dissipation, if you have a CPU in there that the system was not designed for, you could overheat things and stress the components to shorten life or simply kill it. A good way to gauge things is to look for the top CPU Acer offers with that model and go with that as an upgrade.
