As such, any card with an upgraded cooling assembly will naturally achieve higher clock speeds than a reference design. This isn't due to PCB traces or even component selection as those items will only come into effect when you are pushing the upper limits of the architecture through exotic means of cooling.
So what you're saying is,

Make Cold, Go Fast.
