GPU fan voltage - Does gpu fan usage affect gpu overclock voltage?

Hey guys. I only post here once in a blue moon, but I know you guys are the experts. Here is my question:

Assuming GPU voltage is limiting my ability to overclock further, does the standard GPU fan pull from that voltage? Also, if the fan is running at a higher %, is it pulling even more voltage from the GPU's available voltage?

Basically, I'm wondering if removing or adjusting my graphics card's fan speed would free up some voltage for stabilizing an overclock.

Nvidia is still locking these voltages after all these years. I have a gtx 1080 now. I did try doing the bios flashing/modding on my old gtx 680s, but it kind of screwed one up later on when I was trying to flash it back to stock. So I'm not looking to do the bios flashing. I just want to squeeze what I can out of this lame voltage cap.

Thanks for any help.

BTW. Updated my rig in signature after 5 years. Y'all should be proud of me.
