Why would my temps be lower with a mild overclock?

    Hi ,Happy New Year
    I have the PNY 6800 using Riva Tuner 15.3 it's running great 16 6 on the pipes and OC to 365 core 789 mem with this config it idles and cruise the net at 50c When I go back to stock clocking 325 core700 mem the temps go up about 9 or 10c
    Just curious but theoretically shouldn't they go up when overclocking?? The Riva Tuner is a great gift from Unwinder..I have been playing with it from time to time and I'm more impressed with the program the more I play with it...
