Mac mini - Better thermals with eGPU?

I was just thinking, considering an eGPU makes the iGPU silicon idle there ought be a corresponding increase in thermal headroom for the rest. Has anyone tested this to see if it's more than negligible?

Just a spurious though while I await the arrival of my mini and Core X.
