Like, let's say if my CPU is stable at 0.980v at 3.7 GHz load and the temp is 39c on load (ambient temp is around 12c), can the vcore has more potential to go even lover say 0.800v if I happen to fit a cooler that could cool it to like 20c on load ? nevermind, I was passing time and the idea came !
The effect, if I'm not mistaken, is the same behind both scenarios. Lower temperature = less friction = easier electron flow.
When the resistance is lower, the voltage is lower for a specific value of current.
Now, how lower you can set voltage for a specific overclock by changing between mainstream coolers is a different story. We're not talking about extreme differences here.
