Larger calipers & rotors = more mass = more heat (aka thermal energy) absorption. Which means the pad can take more thermal energy & stay cooler longer. Pads have a working-heat range that they have to stay within. Above this working heat range will cause brake fade.

Cooling comes from things like ducts, rotor fins, etc... You can use thermal paint to determine cooling: LINK

Fluid boiling is a function of fluid type (e.g. Motul 600 vs 660). Which causes a spongy pedal.

Hope I explained that clearly...
