i dont think is so.
It is. Remenber the ultimate heatsink for conventional air and water coooled comps is the surrounding atmospheric air. The temp of that ambient air rules.
There are slight variations due to warmer ambient air being less dense and cooling a bit worse than cooler denser ambient air, relative humidity etc., but generally speaking a 7C increase in ambient temp means a 7C increase in comp temps.
To free up from the ambient temp air servitude you need non-conventional warfare (peltier, cryogenic gases, etc).
In fact comp temps are meaningless unless referenced to local ambient air temp. If at full swing your CPU is 55C and mine is 35C, but local ambient temps are 35C and -5C respectively, your cooling system (Δ20C) is much more efficient than mine (Δ40C).
