no, unless you don't mind the laptop being stuck to a desk.

if the clock speeds go up thanks to extra cooling and the amount of work per unit time stays the same, then yes

There are not really any commercial solutions to upgrade the CPU cooler in a laptop. They're usually proprietary. Most you can do is upgrade the thermal paste and maybe place the laptop on a desk cooling pad with fans to help temperatures out a bit.

Do you want it to still be a laptop? If so, the only thing you can do is replace the thermal paste. This won't improve performance at all if you're already running full turbo speed. If you want to do a fun DIY laptop into desktop project then you can slap a huge cooler on that baby and overclock. 

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Skill Trident Z RGB - WD SN750 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G3 650W - dual booting Windows 10 and Linux - Black and green theme, Razer brainwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - dark mode Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus thread, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

You may find that more difficult than it initially seems. Good luck
