I read somewhere thar every 11 degree drop in your cpu temp gave you 1% more performance is that true thanks.
performance is the same, unless thermal throttling kicks in which I believe is an intel-only thing (reduces the speed to reduce the temps, or something like that). Usually you can disable this though.
