comment (If and) Why does cold temperature affect semiconductors?
Although the other explanations are good, they focus on the practical effects of CPU cooling rather than the underlying physics, the latter of which was the answer I was looking for.

comment (If and) Why does cold temperature affect semiconductors?
The temperatures that the surface of the chip are experiencing are -40 C. I agree that the primary purpose is to remove heat, but CPU stability is also an issue here, right? I was told that stability is an issue of the materials that the CPU is made of, and varies from CPU to CPU.
