Ok I'm new to overclocking and to water and I had a question about voltages and water. So currently my 4.6ghz clock runs at 1.22volts and I was curious if when on water and temps decrease would I be able to drop that voltage down or will the water only help in my higher overclocks and do nothing to the voltage aspect? I tried googling it but haven't found anything on that. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
There is a small chance that your voltage could be dropped slightly under water. CPUs perform optimally and most efficiently at cold temperatures. I wouldn't expect any wonders, though, if at all.
Water does allow you to reach slightly higher voltages and still be safe though, due to lower temps.
Basically I wouldn't peg that as a motivation to water cool. Best I would say is that it would make the voltage safer, not necessarily allow it to be lower.
