Resistance is calculated by voltage/amps. So if the voltage goes up, the amperes go up and the total power consumption goes up.

A card sitting at 40% load will always be a few degrees cooler than a card sitting at 100% because the amp draw is lower which means a lower total power draw.
But if you compare a GPU loaded at 100% that runs are 900mV and then at 1093mV, the setting at 900mV will always be cooler under the same scenario.

To lower GPU usage, you could setup a frame limiter. This will also result in lower temps. That in combination with undervolting, can gain you at least 5°C temp wise (but at the cost of a lower frame rate)
I ran the GPU at stock power limit and voltage and there is definitely a 3-4 maybe 5C reduction in temps of the GPU. Power consumption in watts was obviously lower than usual. Funny thing is I can still play Division 2 locked at 85 FPS on my ultrawide monitor without the extra power. I will have to test with other games but this does go to show what a power house the 2080 Ti is even without overclocking it.

Nothing. I live it hot area. 95F with 70% humidity, day and night, everyday. Sometimes I switch on the AC, but I'll just bear with the heat most of the times.

Afraid air conditioning is the only real answer.

I have central AC rather than a window unit. If I leave my room door closed, the heat just rises and rises. In the summer I've pretty much adapted to my room being 80-84F most of the time. The AC is set to 75F, but the heat isn't in the hallway to trigger the thermostat, it's in my room. When I get desperate, I put a box fan in my doorway to blow the cool hallway air into my room, it works. Otherwise leave the door open with a ceiling fan on to move that hot air out of the room and hopefully trigger the thermostat. Turning on the central fan without the ac can help with that too I guess, but I never really do that.

I don't believe in turning the thermostat down further.

Ideally, I'd just get a window ac for the room where it really matters, but I just haven't been bothered enough to do that. I would suggest a window ac for the hot room if you are really bothered, and leave the central ac off.

Just run Zen 2. It doesn't overclock anyways.

I was in the same situation in my old room when i was younger with my parents.
What i did is that i bought a fun to take out the hot air (and my smoke also) out of the room to outside. That fun was in a wall that i drilled a hole if i remember right 20x20cm and took out everything outside.
It was an exhaust room fan, not a simple fan and inside the room had automatic grills that were open when you opened it.

It was something like that

And i had put it high in the wall and that thing did tremendous work.
