Does overclocking integrated graphics add to the heat of the CPU?

I have a 3570k equipped with a Intel HD 4000 Integrated Graphics. It is currently running with a 660ti in virtumvp.

If I disable integrated graphics and some of its voltage will it lower some temperatures?

Yes overclocking definitely adds to the heat of your cpu, so its good to watch your temperatures whilst changing the voltage.
Well if your already running a dedicated card, your integrated graphics are usually disabled by default, but if you lower the voltage you will get a fair decrease temperatures, but also a decrease in performance.
If your looking at overclocking, its always advised you get a quality after market cpu cooler, it will keep it a lot cooler than the stock cooler that comes with the CPU
